Phantom Goes PC

Phantom Game Service Goes Software Only has details on the revelation on the Phantom Entertainment Website that the Phantom console will live up to countless predictions by never materializing as a retail product, and outlines the change in plan that will launch the Phantom service as Windows software, gamely claiming to be pioneering this already crowded field:
The Phantom Game Service brings high-quality gaming to you with an always-on, broadband-connected gaming service. It delivers convenience, ease of use, instant gratification, and the broadest range of games, including a large library of the latest releases as well as hard-to-find games.

The Phantom® Game Service is pioneering a whole new method of distributing games that benefits consumers, publishers and retailers, and makes the dream of being able to purchase any game, at any time, from the comfort of the family room a reality.

any fucking retard that actually STILL invests money in this company should be arrested, brought before a tribunal, and fucking SHOT for the good of humanity.

I don't not think this word means what you think it means...

You mean pioneering isn't the verb normally associated with Vaporware? As in "I pioneered the Phantom to a bunch of retard investors?"

Now go to actual work as a bus boy, bank teller or grocery checkout clerk and maybe there you can actually produce something more than hype and disappointed investors.

Don't degrade bus boys, bank tellers, and grocery store clerks like that. The 3 named grops are leagues above these idiots.

I wonder if (forget who it was) is going to further show that the Phantom offices don't exist!

Puh, they can use all the crappy pigeons they want, they will never better my planned service using swallows. If they can carry a coconut, they can carry a DVD. Now... African or European...

Sometimes, you have to just realize you aren't good in business. Now go to actual work as a bus boy, bank teller or grocery checkout clerk and maybe there you can actually produce something more than hype and disappointed investors.

I actually saw the thing at the 2004 E3. No games were running but boy oh boy the text on the screen was slick. Bwahaha. Actually I visted the area 4 times during 3 days and most of the time they were having major problems.

To give them credit, they picked a great name for it.

# something apparently sensed but having no physical reality; "seemed to hear faint phantom bells"; "the amputee's illusion of a phantom limb"

The "whole new method" of distributing games must be by carrier pigeon because traditional shipping and digital download have long been covered as methods of distributing games.

that benefits ...retailers
I am sure retailers wlll love to sell subscriptions or credits to the Phantom service since it would most likely erode sales of their higher margin game SKU's.

and makes the dream of being able to purchase any game, at any time, from the comfort of the family room a reality.
Phantom's service must require that consumers move their PC's into the "family room" to use it because otherwise the dream of being able to purchase any game at any time online has been a reality for at least a decade.

Funny, but this sure sounds like what Gametap and Steam are already doing. Gametap for the old and Steam for the new.
