I think it's vaporware. I signed up for their beta, but I'm not expecting a real, live piece of hardware. They say that they're going into beta soon, but we haven't seen a picture of the hardware or screenshots.
Check out this from Penny Arcade. Scroll down to about half way, under the heading of "Oh, Right"
For those who are lazy, there's the kicker:
Steve from HardOCP dropped the following science on me yesterday:
We had a reader go by Infinium Labs and take pictures of their "facility" ( that's when we found out it was a strip mall in the Florida Keys ) only to find out it was a single desk in a 100 x 100ft room with two phones and no furniture. That was about 4 months ago.
I talked to the Tim Roberts guy on the phone when he returned my call ( 22 days after I left a message ) and when I asked him about all this...he HUNG UP ON ME. I asked him if he was looking for investors, he said "We are actively recruiting investors". I asked him if they had any consoles on hand, he said "We have several hundred prototype models here in the office". So then I asked him where the prototypes were made, he said "right here in our facility". Then I told him I had seen his 100ft x 100ft office space conveinently located next to Missing Link Art Gallery in the strip mall ( located at 5380 Gulf of Mexico Dr. Longboat Key, Fl 34228 ) and he went NUTS!!! "WHO THE F*CK IS THIS!?!?! BLAH BLAH I'LL SUE YOU".
Sounds like a scam to me.

Ha ha thats some good stuff. I love it when scammers get caught in the act.
Despite how much of a flop I think it will be, I think they're really going to come out with it

I think it's a big freakin joke but we could be seeing a bit of the future of gaming in this thing.
As there is more and more of a push for online gaming we could end up with an Xbox or Playstation that is just a big modem for getting access to all your games online. No buying CD's just opening up accounts for the games you want to try.
