By , dealnews Media Editor

Only 13 more rumor days until X-Mas!

  • Next-Gen Wii U has Better Specs than Xbox or PlayStation?
    Barely! And how can you compare the next-gen Wii to the last-gen Xbox and PS3? Also not news: The iPhone is a better calculator than the watch I used to wear in middle school! [PCMag]

  • Apple LCD TV Will Come in Three Sizes?
    It'll reportedly come in 32", 55", and an undisclosed third size. Unicorns also come in various sizes and colors! [AppleInsider]

  • Verizon to Challenge Netflix with an Online Streaming Service?
    If this keeps up, before we know it Netflix is going to, once again, be the plucky underdog we're all rooting for! (And not the bloated bully we perceive it to be these days.) Or ... wait ... how do we feel about Netflix, these days? It's so hard to keep track of who to hate! [Reuters]

  • New Tony Hawk Game?
    He tweeted that he has something to announce at Spike TV's Video Game Awards. What's this? An aging celebrity is being given the chance to reclaim the spotlight? Hawk shall henceforth be known as "The Betty White of Skateboarding." [StickSkills]

  • Half-Life 3 Achievements Partially Leaked?
    StickSkills has a screen grab purporting to show a handful of achievements for a new Half-Life game. Given that this title is also rumored to be announced at Spike TV's Video Game Awards, we can only conclude that The Betty White of Skateboarding is in Half-Life 3.
