This Week's Rumor Roundup: Rock Band, Zune, iPhone, more
Nothin' says "slow news day" like a healthy bumper-crop of rumors!
Two-singer support in Rock Band: The Beatles? Cuz hearing one of your friends caterwaul their way through a song isn't painful enough. Now you have to put up with TWO tone-deaf warblers trying to harmonize their way through the McCartney / Lennon songbook.
Zune HD has out-of-this-world specs? Though the device itself is confirmed as being real, the specs are not. So, of course, the Internets are making wild claims, hoping that Microsoft will make their wishes come true: NVIDIA Tegra processor! OLED touch display! HDMI out! Blu-ray drive! A girlfriend!
SlingPlayer on iPhone conspiracy? It's claimed that AT&T doesn't want the app on the iPhone because it'll use their 3G network. Heaven forbid a cell phone company lets users USE their cell phone connection. See also: Skype.
Patapon 2 for PSP available only via digital download? This will be a one-time-only trial run to "...explore consumer preferences for digital content." You just keep on exploring the potential of digital distribution, Sony, as iTunes, Steam, GameTap, Netflix, and Xbox LIVE act upon it. Your lunch has been eaten, even before you knew you had one at all!
