VideoGamer.com's run-down of the big rumours currently doing the rounds in the video game industry.
The Rumour: Microsoft is working with Rare on a new motion controller for the Xbox 360. It will function independently to other controllers (no linking up to other peripherals here) and work in conjunction with plenty of new tailored software. Rare has been handling the development of the Mii-like characters that you'll be able to create and use in all the supported games. Out at the end of this year.
Verdict: This rumour has been doing the rounds for months, although it gained some credibility when MTV posted a story detailing the new peripheral. Usually we'd be quick to point out that mainstream video game coverage is shaky at best, but in this case the news comes from former 1up News Editor and now Reporter for MTV Multiplayer Patrick Klepek. Still not 100% convinced, but it could happen.
Plausibility rating: 3/5
