- Inside the Infinium Labs Phantom Console

If you were previously holding out for this so called revolutionary gaming console, unfortunately I bring thoroughly dissapointing news. The HardOCP crew have published an article which takes a closer look at what the infamous Phantom Game Console from Infinium Labs is really all about, absolute shock material here 'tis all I can say.


For those of you not familiar with Infinium Labs and the Phantom Console, we first ran an investigative editorial last year entitled Behind the Infinium Phantom Console. The ediorial focused mainly on the company itself with little information provided about the console other than what could be gleaned from previous Infinium Labs press releases. We never had access to the inside of the Phantom, before now. Having received multiple threats of legal action unless the article was removed, HardOCP (KB Networks, Inc.) filed suit under the Declaritory Judgment Act, seeking relief from the threats in Federal District Court in Texas. Infinium retalitated by filing a duplicate suit in Florida State Court, closing its Texas office and disclaiming any relationship to Texas. The cases are still pending so we won't comment further on them here.
