Title: Infinium Phantom (or should they have called it Vapor)
Post by: adolescent on November 22, 2005, 09:20:29 AM
Does anyone think that the (aptly named) Phantom...

A) Actually exists?
B) Will ever be released?
C) Was anything other than a scam to steal venture capital from investors desperate to get into the multi-billion dollar video game industry?

The latest news seems to point towards "No" answers to above questions.

With what appears to be the last piece of legitimacy leaving the company, what other conclusions could be made?  

IMHO, it was a good idea.  A PC based game system/appliance/stb with PPV type games distribution system.  If it was cheaper than outfitting a complete 3GHz PC, I'd be very interested.  But, AFAIK, the company has yet to show even a prototype to the public after more than 2 years.
