What about Phantom


New member
The announcement of the development of the Phantom games console was one of the most debated stories of 2003, with industry experts describing it in a variety of ways. Some suggested the console was vaporware, or an elaborate hoax, while others praised the proposed economic model but doubted that the company could last long enough to see profitability.

The debate is about to reach its climax, as Infinium Labs, the console's creators, are about to demonstrate the Phantom Gaming Service and silence the voices of those who doubt its existence.

Infinium Labs announced today that its Phantom Gaming Service will be unveiled to the public January 8-11 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

We’re very excited to be showing the Phantom Gaming Service for the first time at North America's largest tradeshow, said Timothy M. Roberts, CEO of Infinium Labs. This show gives us the unique opportunity to present the Phantom firsthand to both consumers and industry insiders.

The Phantom Gaming Service will be a featured product at the Microsoft Windows Embedded Device Showcase exhibit in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Infinium Labs is licensed by Microsoft Licensing, GP to use Windows XP Embedded for operating system components of the Phantom Gaming Service.

The Phantom Gaming Service also will be featured in a hospitality suite on the 7th floor of an office building at 101 Convention Center Drive, just half a block from the Las Vegas Convention Center, and at a penthouse suite at the Palms Casino Hotel.

CES attendees can catch a glimpse of the Phantom at a special gaming session, SS2 Next–Generation Gaming Console, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 8, at the LVCC North Hall N254. Robert Shambro, Executive Vice President of Strategy and Co-founder of Infinium Labs, will be a panel participant.

The Phantom Game Service is a next-generation gaming system that supports games on-demand, game rentals, game demos, seamless upgrades and patch management. At launch, the Phantom will be the fastest, most powerful gaming system on the market and will include a broad selection of pre-loaded games, on-demand games and game rentals.

The Phantom Gaming Service is an always-on broadband device, which will allow gamers a wealth of options, from wireless connectivity to massive multiplayer capabilities, allowing gamers to demo games before purchasing or subscribing.

It was announced that this console will not have a DVD/CD ROM Drive. Will it stop emu authors from emulating it. If they emulate it, how?

Correct me if I'm wrong...

It's basically an overpriced PC that can only play games. Fucking brilliant.
