Recommended Posts

By now, the whole world has heard of Infinium Labs and their infamous Phantom Game Console,

Ummm, not till today.

The mark of a true phantom. You don't even know it's there.

Muahahaha, some friends and I on another board have been following this thing's 'development' for ages. It's provided many an hour of amusement!

I think I'll stick to the PC, the greatest games platform there is.

I dont care who they signed up, no one has seen a beta unit, a factory they are being built or anything save hot air surrounding this thing. Only an idiot would sign up to preorder something that dont exist. I'd just as soon sign up to preorder a Klingon disrupter, at least I've actually seen a mock up that wasnt a 3-d rendering. What a maroon!

Anyone want to wager that the FBI is looking for this guy?

He's got Flim Flam written all over him. LOL Poor Kevin, I wonder who signs his Paychecks?...

Krusty the Klown? That's who used to sign his paychecks

Oh and Race, Noone is going to see a beta unit of this piece of junk. The guy is living the high life off of suckers by using smoke and mirrors. He's there one second Dazzling everyone with his brilliance, then *POOF* the smoke pot goes off and he disappears, leaving everyone baffled and holding a handful of Bull Sh*t.

the pics of the console are still 3D renders, even the pic of the back.

And if ever it's a real thing, i think the fact that it relies completely on game downloads will be a turn-down. If, for some reason, it becomes popular, how long would it take for the console to be download a high-profile game like Unreal 2 or Doom 3 (whenever that comes out)? We're talking about a 700+ megs download, and unless infinium labs have a deal with fileplanet the speeds will not be stellar.

And since it,s being compared to a pc, would it be able to play feature-rich games which are also CPU hogs like the BC games, X2, homeworld 2 or even simpler games like planetside which still requires uber hardware to play well?

.. or will it only have simple games for simple minds?

ROTFLMAO... one other architectural mistake.

The Flim Flam room only has one door. No escape if you get caught.

I feel sorry for Bachus, he seems to be the only legit guy in the bunch. I'll still bet the working model of a Klingon disrupter hits the market first.

You know, I might have actually considered getting a Phantom if it wasn't for all of this 'premium games' business. I can see the angry mobs at Best Buy, now:

"So, let me get this straight. I have to pay $30 per month to have access to a bunch of mediocre games, and still get banged for the full price of any decent game? So, basically, I'm getting smacked with an extra $30 to save $5 of gas to go the mall? I have a better idea. It's called Amazon.com. Take this piece of trash back and cancel my subscription immediately."
