I just found this out after I decided to make sure Infinium was a hoax (as tons of people suspected already), as far as I know I am the first person to link Infinium to Exit-Art (I may very well be mistaken though):

The controversial hoax Infinium labs (http://infiniumlabs.com) occupies the location of a art store by the name of exit art. (http://exit-art.com) If the title of a console being "Phantom" didn't prove it this does.

The address proved from whois.net was
5380 Gulf of Mexico Drive
Longboat Key, FL 34228

Google provided me with links to exit-art.com when I searched for this address and this has been verified via email as the home of Exit-Art art store.

Sorry.. i guess I thought more people knew about Phantom (http://infiniumlabs.com). This was a pretty well circulated hoax (they paid for a release on the newswire and everything).

My first hint that it was fake was the name, followed by the fact the records showed the site was registered for only a year.. so the site wasn't even registered until launch.

So "Phantom" is a hoax? I read about it on Gamespot the
other day.

I'm sick of Internet Hoaxes. These people are dweebs. They
don't belong in society. As far as I'm concerned, they can stay
gathered around their mothers' kitchen tables, eating Fig Newtons
and playing D&D for as long as they live.

Jeez, it's been less than a month since the last game-related
internet hoax. (mavav)...

Yeah, because to have a chance, it'd have to be, y'know... real.

Now are you ****ing brain damaged, goddammit!? He was only posting some INFORMATION (that some people, like me, might be interested in) on a message board, not comitting homocide. If your angry or something, this is not the place to take out your anger. You hadn't any right to say what you said. Now go **** yourself.
