Want to Play with a Phantom?
Posted 20 June 2003 - 03:05 PM
The goal of the beta process, according to Infinium Labs, is for at least 100 "experienced" gamers to give the console a test drive and provide feedback on all of its functions. The Phantom will support games on demand, game rentals, game demos, seamless upgrades and patch management, and Infinium Labs claims that at launch, it will be the fastest console on the market. The Phantom also will come pre-loaded with a number of games. Its main draw is that its an "always on broadband device." This means that gamers will have all sorts of options, such as wireless connectivity, massive multiplayer gaming, and being able to demo games before purchasing or subscribing.
Please be aware that you must have a reliable broadband Internet service that is capable of at least 1Mbps downstream in order to participate. Infinium Labs also would prefer "hard-core to moderate gamers with basic computer knowledge in the gaming arena." The beta launch is expected to begin in Q4 2003. Also, the Phantom supposedly will finally be revealed to the public for the first time at the Ultimate Gamers Expo, August 15-17th, 2003.

I still think it's going to be a big huge failure, just like the Nokia N-gage.
