This Week's Rumor Roundup: Street Fighter IV, Guitar Hero IV, Metal Gear Solid 4, more

If the Internet is Jell-O, then rumors are those bits of pineapple that your mom insists on suspending inside it, ruining the entire desert. I ... I'm not sure where I was going with this analogy. I guess I just wanted some way to tell my mom to stop putting pineapple in my Jell-O.

Now, on to the rumors:

  • .Mac getting a new name / overhaul?
    Either way, I'm just glad that it's not another iPhone or Tablet Mac rumor ...
  • Tablet Mac?
  • Microsoft to buy the phone book?
    Yellow Book 7 to feature pages you flip through using your fingers! (That's a Windows 7 joke. Too soon?)
  • Street Fighter IV?
    I'm pretty sure I can already reveal some secret moves for the characters: Roll-to-forward + button.
  • Guitar Hero: World Tour pricing revealed?
    It's rumored to be about $20 more than Rock Band. There, now you don't have to read the article.
  • 90-minute cut-scenes in Metal Gear Solid 4?
    What better way to heighten the action of a shoot-em-up video game then by giving players huge, 90-minute swaths of time in which they just get to watch the game play itself?!

Jeff Somogyi is dealnews' Media Editor. He already owns several video games that have 90-minute cut scenes ... they're called MOVIES.
