Did Sony drop chipmaker Nvidia on the PlayStation 4's design specs in favor of Intel? That's what gossip site The Inquirer's claiming as signed, sealed, and delivered. The story's title includes the declarative "Intel will design." No question mark.

Sony's response? Tech Radar spoke with a Sony Europe rep who said "it's nonsense, and is quite possibly the best work of fiction I've read, since Lord of the Rings."

But wait, is Sony even planning a PlayStation 4? I'm not so sure. I mean, I can't even find a Wikipedia page on the system, which of course throws everything into question.

Hey, do a little research next time guys!

"Trying to squash a rumor is like trying to unring a bell," said Life magazine's Shana Alexander.
