The Phantom Console

Infinium Labs sets launch for Phantom console: There’s a new gaming console coming. It’s free with a two year subscription to their gaming service,

The console features a PC-like architecture, with 256 megabytes of RAM and a 40 gigabyte hard drive, running an embedded version of Windows XP. It will use a custom controller and support surround sound and high-definition TV.

But Bachus downplayed the capabilities of the hardware, saying the real focus was the gaming service. “It’s kind of a fool’s errand to try and chase the PC,” he said.
