Rumor Roundup: World of Warcraft Expansion? iTunes Replay?

By Jeff Somogyi, dealnews Media Editor

These are some rumors. Enjoy them:

  • Next World of Warcraft expansion to be called "Mists of Pandaria"?
    According to We Got This Covered, the next add-on will be all about Pandarians who are ... what? Really? They're a character class of pandas?!?! So, all you have to do is wait around for them to LAZY themselves out of existence? Easiest. Expansion pack. Ever.
  • Apple's "iTunes Replay" will let you stream movies from iTunes?
    AppAdvice cries "Netflix Killer!" Netflix cries, "Yeah, but can you increase fees by 40% and get away with it?" And Apple says, "Uh... yeah. We already charge a premium for our products!" Then Torrents come in and say, "Hey guys! What are you talking about?!" and the room falls into an uncomfortable silence.
  • Angry Birds coming to the Zune HD?
    Zunited reports that when they asked Rovio if it was going to happen, Rovio responded, "It is our goal to get Angry Birds to all relevant devices out there and we are still considering Zune HD." This reminds me of a famous baseball player visiting a sick child in a hospital. Heartbreaking when the child looks up and says, "Mr. Jeeter? Will I be a superstar, one day?" And what, exactly, is Jeeter supposed to say?! (Though, it's also heartbreaking because this poor kid likes the Yankees.)
  • Red Dead Redemption getting a Game Of The Year release?
    PSX Extreme says it'll contain the game and all add-on content available. In my household, it will be known as the "This Cost Me 5x As Much To Buy All This Crap Separately And Now I Feel Like A Chump Edition." (Just like every GOTY edition.)
  • Kindle 4 coming soon?
    TechCrunch says that Amazon offering discounted refurbished units has always been the harbinger of a new Kindle. Well, Amazon is now offering discounted refurb units. QED? I personally hope not because I just bought my aging grandmother a Kindle and don't want to feel like my super awesome gift was all for nothing! I ... I feel terrible for saying that, because they'll probably price-match me, so I have nothing to complain about, right?
