This Week's Rumor Roundup: Sega, Hobbit, Apple, and more

This week's rumors include:
  • Dreamcast 2 on the horizon?
    No word on backward-compatibility with the two games they released for the original which didn't totally suck.
  • Xbox 360 System Update may cause loss of forum data?
    Since most of them constituted "First Post!!!" it's really no big loss.
  • Pete Jackson directing The Hobbit ... in 3D!?
    The news signals worldwide nerd hysteria ... in 3D!
  • Macs to run Windows programs natively?
    Now that I can natively run Minesweeper on a Mac, I'll look into switching.
  • iTunes Store to up movie prices to $15?
    Considering that most DVDs cost less than that, include bonus features, have a higher resolution, and can be watched on any device that plays them, this makes total sense to me ...
  • iPhone update to add voice recording and disk use?
    Turn your voice notes into ring tones for only $1.99!
