Zuh? Another game console on the horizon??
« on: January 21, 2003, 08:19:05 am »
Read that a new game console called 'THE PHANTOM" (wasn't that a bad billy zane movie?) is coming out.  I quote from the press release: "The on-demand delivery system will appeal to hard-core gamers as well as casual users".  
Somehow I don't see how the hard-core gamers of the world will want to pay-per-play in their living room.

Their website says THE PHANTOM will be able to play 'potentially thousands' of games upon release, and that you can play online with PC users.  Hmmm....sounds fishy to me   :P  Plus how many developers would even sign on for ANOTHER console? They say it's more powerful than xbox, so it's probably just a sooped up PC-in-a-box.

Looks like its still deep in the hype-only phase of marketing.  No actual box exists, no specs.  Its just going to be a cheap PC, and you rent PC games online.  How unoriginal.  Anyone could release a cheap PC better than the xbox specs if they wait long enough.  :P

Thanks for the heads up though.
