    sounds like a scam. or it's for real, but it's gonna flop. that whole angle about having to be on broadband, having to subscribe to a service, having to download games from Infinium, and having to be connected to the company's server just for the machine to even function... it all adds up to a really poor idea. if Infinium goes out of business, the Phantom machine won't even be playable anymore-- that's ridiculous.

    not to mention that the console market traditionally has only been able to support 2 systems at a time. all throughout the 80s & 90s there was a pattern where 2 systems at a time would be successful, and other ones would fail. right now there are 3. Gamecube & Xbox have had a pretty rough time competing with PS2, so it's hard to imagine that there'd be enough room in the market for a 4th system.

    even though Infinium is starting to sound more like a legitimate company than it used to, i still can't get rid of the impression i had early on that they were actually just planning to round up some corporate investors, get their money, and disappear.
