This week's Rumor Roundup: Google, Games, Apple, more

Gaming rumors command a bigger slice of this week's rumor pie:

Is Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots going to be released this winter to slake fanboys' thirst for Snake-based mayhem?

Will RPG-philes be rocking Final Fantasy VII on the PlayStation 3 soon?

And, in what I find to be the most hilarious rumor of the day:
Could it be that EA is making a new game?! That's right! No real details about WHAT it is. (Well, it might be a first-person shooter.)

More hilarity:

Super-richy Woz to marry Kathy Griffin? Not that Woz finding love is funny. In fact, we're very happy that he is finally moving on from his unrequited relationship with Jobs.

Speaking of Sir Steve (cuz he can't go ONE week without a rumor surrounding his company):
New MacBook on the way? Thinner, lighter, and made of aluminum - just like S.J.'s heart.

The gPhone is the new iPhone (at least in terms of speculation):
The GoogPhone / PhoneOogle to use 3G and a custom OS?

And Google's not the only ones rumored to be dipping its hands into the phone biz:

Both TomTom and Garmin, makers of GPS systems, are said to be looking into developing cellphones, too.

Also, an old rumor comes back:
Hollywood re-re-re-reinvestigating the viability of download-to-burn DVDs.

So much speculation, so little time!
