"In europe and the Far East pay per play, broadband systems are breaking the trend and becoming standard home options"

Indeed they are options where I live in the UK, however, they are not very popular options.

The idea that people will pay USD400 for a machine that will not allow them to play their games should they stop subscribing to a service is, frankly, pure fantasy. People shelling out that kind of cash like to get something concrete for their money, not a vapourous box whose library will disappear should anything go wrong with any part of the system.

I'm sure everyone here has an old console (NES,2600, Master Sys etc) they still play on to this day. There is no opportunity for this with the Phantom system. The sooner they stop kidding themselves that this is ever going to work, the sooner space on news sites can be used for something useful...
