On-Demand Games

This is a pretty interesting looking game service with a sexy box that while based on a PC, connects to your TV. Just hook it up to your broadband connection and you’ll be all set. Launches in the fall…

The Phantom Gaming Service starts with a specialized PC in the form of a set-top box attached to a broadband connection. The device taps into a library of PC video games that customers can buy or rent. Customers can get the hardware free if they sign up for a two-year subscription at $30 a month, or they can get the device for $200 without the commitment. A basic subscription will give access to relatively older games, while premium plans will provide access to the latest first-tier titles. [Wired news]
