The Zapper!: "Throw Infinium In"
Posted: Tuesday May 30th, 2006 by

With a console that has seen constant delays, a founder that seems to be incapable of avoiding scandal, and an ex-CEO that is suing them for upaid wages and personal time off, it's no wonder the Board of Directors at Infinium Labs is proposing a name change for the company. July 13th the company will be holding a special stockholder meeting to propose the new name, Phantom Entertainment, Inc. As per the SEC filing outlining the meeting, Infinium's Board of Directors believes "the name change would be in the best interests of the Company" claiming "the new name better reflects the long-term growth strategy of the Company".

As I've said before "Phantom" is obviously the best name for Infinium's console. So, now it makes perfect sense that it be used as the name of their whole freakin' company. But, quite frankly, I'm tired of of them, the console, the Board of Directors, Timothy Roberts, etc., flying so close to the zapper without falling in. Maybe SOMEONE needs to be proactive and just toss them the hell in and save us all the annoyance.

You may notice too that we have a new fly "hovering on the brink". So, why exactly is Atari there? Well, even with the recent game price cuts, they're in dire financial straights. And, Infogrames, their parent company, can't seem to manage the company competently (opinion). Hell they're selling the publishing rights to Neverwinter Nights 2 and Timeshift.

Anyway, that's why Atari is there.
