Phantom at E3

Yeah... apparently this will be at E3:



Well, i know im not supposed to console bash but... how thrilled should I be for a company that cant even embed a pic inside an email? I seriously got this as the email:

I got the same email today. Are we supposed to put that helmet on our heads?

If it looks lame, and sounds lame, chances are...it's gonna be lame.

I'm quietly preparing myself for a complete "paradigm-shift".

What happened with the lawsuit with that hardware site? Is it still going on? Last I heard the Phantom people made good on their threats and sued them, but haven't heard how things turned out.

Is anyone else foreseeing this to be an X-box with a Phantom logo stickered over it?

I thought they announced they were going to debut at UGE last year, which never got off the ground. Speaking of which are there any plans for UGE to happen this year?

Stop Pretending You're a Real Company

Anyone else think it will eventually end up just being another "DISCover" console?
(If it ever becomes a reality at all)

That email was just lame, apparently all E3 registered participants got one...

I wonder how many working Phamtom units these clowns will show at E3?

This thing will never hit market. The old spec sheet read like it was just basically a PC in a fancy box.

Without the support of a major corporation, it's impossible to launch a console nowadays. We're not in the Nintendo/Sega/Atari 80's anymore.

Further proof that corporate America can be more stubbornly idiotic than a 10 year old.
