The NZA Posted July 19, 2003 Share Posted July 19, 2003 Gameforms.com... Phantom game console to be shown at Ultimate Games Expo» Maybe we'll finally get to see what it can do. News | Thursday, July 17, 2003 | Jeff Brown [staff Writer] As this year’s Ultimate Games Expo kicks off August 15, videogame fanatics will find there is much more to see than just next-generation titles and mobile technology. Held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the UGE will give gamers of all ages a chance to check out some of this year’s hottest games as well as some new hardware. In an announcement by global entertainment/gaming developer Infinium Labs, the "Phantom" home console will be one of the new pieces of gaming hardware shown at UGE. A cross between a PC, videogame console and rental store, the "Phantom" will be the latest foray into the console market by a company other than Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft. Veiled in secrecy, with only a few vague features and no specs to be announced, the "Phantom" has been something of a mystery since its announcement last January. With the supposed ability to download new games, demo upcoming games, and rent existing titles, the Phantom is looking to be an interesting prospect for the console industry. However, with the failure of consoles such as the 3D0 and Jaguar, as well as the untimely death of Sega's Dreamcast, it's easy to see why Infinium Labs console has yet to garner much attention. But with its array of supposed features and a truckload of style, the "Phantom" may just turn some heads at this years UGE.
