Phantom Console Makes Phantom Appearance At CES… Sort Of…

from the let-me-show-you-this-box... dept

Earlier this year we had a few articles about the mysterious Phantom gaming console that many are saying is just a big hoax or scam – as there seems to be very little real information on the thing. Now TAD writes in to point out that: “The Phantom console has shown up at CES, with no games, no screen shots – the reps wouldn’t even turn it on. Just a box with some “ports” on it.” Doesn’t do much to inspire confidence.

Re: And no power input, either

None of the photos show anywhere where a AC power cord can be connected…

Do you know what the plug is under the 10/100 lan port? Might that be some kind of proprietary power plug? Maybe the power is provided in an external power adaptor that’s then connected through that plug.

taking a look at it, and…

I read around and the Cable Modem (300 ohm coaxial cable) port is a cable modem (that’s what they say…) built into the console. But you don’t have to use it, instead you can use the 10/100 Ethernet port, which is on the left side of the back. Under it seems to have a power port, as MissinLnk said, seems to be something proprietary. Also note the Power button, it’s the small…little….little… black, round, button, above the ethernet port.

P.S.: not a big fan of The Phantom, just thought I’d share my noledge with you all
