    Infinium Labs has today announced that it will be demonstrating its Phantom Gaming System at the 2004 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). The console's showing in an 8,000 square-foot booth in the south hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center

    Um yeah, we meant there is no 8,000 sq ft display, actually we're not showing it. Sorry. Here's another 3d rendering of it though.

    It could be real. From what I'm reading, you pay monthly to be able to dl games and play them. It requires broadband just like xbox live. Now as for it being a good idea, I don't know. But it's still kinda cool.

    I think the Phantom is the worst idea of all time, simply because all it is a computer that the cable company sells to you....

    i just dont see it being a good investment of your money. say you DO buy the console, and you buy maybe one game to start off.

    then the company goes under.

    the servers go down

    and that means no more games for you.

    even for old consoles now, like nintendo 64 and snes, you can still buy games. when the phantom goes down you wont be able to buy anymore games. why not just buy a pc? you can download games for that too, and do other stuff on it too, and still have a cd drive.

    i'm saving my money for better things

    well from what iv heard is, that you get 80 free games to start out or something like that...probably like pong and such.

    Usually comes down to cost, cost, cost.

    And consols also take up less space.

    Other then those reasons, I think computers are much better for anything in general

    This console seems to revolve around the internet too much...people are gunna be ****ed off when **** like the service going down, and broken downloads and such happen...i just dont see this plan working well.

    Nothing will ever replace the durability, upgradability, adaptability, reliability, availability (anymore -ity words? ) of the PC for gaming. Even if the Phantom does exist its just another gimick driven product that a few people will fall for and regret a few months later N-gage anyone?
