Rumor Has It: Apple getting serious about games?

Rumors of the Facebook phone may finally be put to rest this week, Amazon's got a secret something going on, and Apple might debut new gaming hardware. Oh boy.


This week, some old-time rumors reared their heads.

Rumors of a Facebook phone resurfaced after a rather cryptic invite went out last week to "Come see our new home on Android." What could it mean?

Amazon has something secret up its sleeve -- possibly. A former Windows Phone exec recently stated on his LinkedIn profile that he's working on something "secret" and "wonderful." Could Amazon finally be letting its Amazon phone cat out of the bag? Let's hope not.

And finally, not to be outdone, Apple supposedly held some secret meetings at the Game Developers Conference to discuss a game controller. The Internet as a whole rolled its eyes at that one.

Would you be interested in an Apple game controller? What do you think it'll look like? Or be used for? Let us know in the comments.
