I can rebuild it. I have the technology. I have the capability to make the world's first bionic web site. Game Buzz will be that web site. Better than it was before. Better... stronger... faster. Okay, so I don't really know how to make Game Buzz "bionic", but I have already been working to make it better, stronger, and faster.
I am working on two new news systems. Once one of them is complete, new content should be posted more frequently.

As mentioned in the previous article, Infinium Labs is planning to offer free Phantom Game Receivers, which include one keyboard (they call it a "lapboard"), one mouse, and one gamepad each, to customers who sign two-year contracts for the basic Phantom Gaming Service, which is expected to cost $29.95 per month (premium game prices have not yet been announced, but they seem likely to vary). This free hardware model is already familiar to many mobile telephone and satellite television customers, but Phantom customers who do not want to be locked into long contracts will be able to buy Phantom Game Receivers for $199 each with that $199 being credited to their service accounts if they remain customers for two years.
Although Infinium Labs previously announced multiple Phantom configurations, they seem to have simplified their offerings by settling on a single hardware configuration, at least for the initial release of the Phantom Game Receiver: it will include an AMD Athlon XP 2500+ CPU, an Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 Ultra GPU, 256 megabytes of RAM, and a 40 gigabyte "local content cache"—their descriptive term for a hard drive. Whether the GPU will have its own dedicated memory or share some portion of the main system memory is not yet clear.
Infinium Labs expects its Phantom Game Service to go live on Thursday, November 18th. The service is expected to be compatible with any standard broadband Internet connection. Keep reading Game Buzz for the latest information about the Phantom system and service.
