Infinium Labs announced today that the highly anticipated new gaming console, Phantom, will be unveiled to the public at the first annual Ultimate Gamers Expo in August. “We’re very excited to be unveiling the Phantom for the first time at the Ultimate Gamers Expo,” said Tim Roberts, CEO of Infinium Labs. “This show is the perfect venue and gives us the unique opportunity to show the system firsthand to over 100,000 gamers and industry insiders.”

The Phantom is a next-generation game console that supports games on-demand, game rentals, game demos, seamless upgrades and patch management. At launch, it will be the fastest console on the market and will include a broad selection of pre-loaded games. The Phantom is an “always on broadband device,” which will allow gamers a wealth of options, from wireless connectivity to massive multiplayer capability to allowing gamers to demo games before purchasing or subscribing.

The Ultimate Gamers Expo takes place from August 15-17 at the Los Angeles Convention Center and is the first show of its kind to give fans the chance to test-drive the latest games and platforms, participate in high-octane tournaments and enjoy live entertainment. Admission to the festival is $20 for adults and $10 for anyone under the age of 17.

“The Ultimate Gamers Expo is the perfect venue for the Phantom’s debut because it will be unveiled not only to the industry, but to the public who will have a chance to experience it firsthand,” said Wayne Pepper, Co-Founder of the Ultimate Gamers Expo.
