    Phantom Impressions
    The Presentation


    A crowd of about 300 had gathered in one of Full Sail's larger classrooms for the monthly meeting of the Orlando chapter of the International Game Developers Association. Our guest speakers for the night were Infinium Labs, the company behind the oft-maligned and highly mysterious Phantom console. They were cautious with information, and while they did spill some details about the system, it's hardware, and their business model, they left a lot of critical questions unanswered. It was information about The Phantom, however, which until now had been almost non-existent.

    The speaker for most of the presentation was Robert Shambro, one of two large Italian fellows who looked like they could moonlight as enforcement agents for various underground loan agencies. Rob spoke eagerly and seemed genuinely excited to present the Phantom and it's details to the crowd, but there was definitely a shiny coating of PR and spin covering the words of his oration. The other speaker was a third man, a generally non-descript laid back fellow by the name of Tim Roberts, who is the CEO of Infinium Labs. He answered a few questions but for the most part Rob did all the talking.

    Yes, they did bring an actual Phantom "console" to the meeting. It looked exactly like the mock ups on the Infinium Labs website, and was about as big as a standard PC-- just picture your home desktop laying on it's side. Yes, it even had that glowing blue Phantom logo on the front. There were no visible controller ports, however there were some USB ports in the back, along with various outputs for S-Video, Component, A/V, a few USB ports and even a FireWire connection.

    Phantom console to use Windows XP

    Infinium Labs and Venturcom, Inc., a leading provider of embedded solutions, and a Microsoft Windows Embedded Partner Gold-Level Member, announced today that Microsoft Licensing, GP has approved an agreement with Infinium Labs Corporation to use Windows XP Embedded for operating system components of the Phantom Game System™. Venturcom will provide its expert Windows Embedded developer support along with the Windows XP Embedded licenses to Infinium Labs for its Phantom Game System.
    “Venturcom will provide an extensive and deep level of support to Infinium Labs during the development and testing phases of the PhantomOS project,” said Will Hornkohl, director of Microsoft business development at Venturcom. “Our flexible support for Microsoft Windows Embedded operating systems will allow Infinium Labs to leverage our team of Windows Embedded Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) expert support personnel and our direct technical ties with Microsoft for expeditious resolution of critical problems.”

    Windows XP Embedded, based on the same binaries as Windows XP Professional delivers the power of the Windows operating system in componentized form. The licensing agreement will allow Infinium Labs to embed the Windows XP features it needs for a customized, reduced-footprint PhantomOS™ for the Phantom Game System and PhantomNet – VPGN™ (Virtual Private Game Network).

    Infinium Labs ready to haul HardOCP into court

    [UPDATE] Phantom maker charges Web site with dealing in misinformation and defamation, while HardOCP stands by its story.


    Infinium Labs today (19.02.2004) announced it may file a legal complaint against hardware information site HardOCP for defamation. According to an Infinium PR rep, HardOCP was "one of the original sites to have spread misinformation" about makers of the to-be-released Phantom game console.

    The potential suit stems from a September 2003 HardOCP article on Infinium and the Phantom, which singled out the company's chairman and CEO, Timothy M. Roberts, for special attention. The article pointed out that several companies on Roberts' resume had gone bankrupt, and it claimed to have firsthand reports that the Infinium offices were a "ghost town" at the time.

    In a conference call to analysts and the press, Infinium president and COO Kevin Bachus said the article was "false and defamatory," and it "painted a portrait of a company intent on swindling the public...and that is unacceptable."

    According to Bachus, Infinium will begin legal action within 10 days unless HardOCP removes the article from its site. Bachus said the action is necessary for the company to maintain a "credible and direct relationship with consumers."

    Infinium has come under more than the usual amount of scrutiny since its Phantom game console was announced in January 2003. Numerous media reports have questioned the company's business practices, including a Sarasota Herald-Tribune article highlighting some executive stock deals.

    Late today, HardOCP Editor-in-Chief Kyle Bennett issued a response standing by his story. "I have extended HardOCP.com's pledge to correct any and all possible inconsistencies or errors in our editorial entitled 'Behind the Phantom Console' personally to Timothy Roberts and Kevin Bachus of Infinium Labs and they have yet to inform HardOCP.com of any information we presented as being not correct,' he said.
