Every once in a while someone breaks out an old school t-shirt here at the office that cracks me up. Today, Miller is sporting the amazing fashions of Phantom - a home console that was doomed to fail from the onset. Soon after its debut in 2004 everyone in the world thought it was dead in the water, until they showed up at E3 and gave out these t-shirts. Because you know, nothing says your business plan is solid and going exactly as planned as these t-shirts.
I included an image of the system and a link to a YouTube video for those that want to learn more. Perhaps someday Miller will have a sweet Ouya shirt too.
The image at the top is of the front of the shirt. Here is the back! Gorgeous I know.
The system itself actually had clean lines, and its lapboard idea that enabled you use a mouse and keyboard from the couch was kind of ingenious.

Hmmmm it will be back for revenge
Oh wow I only vaguely remember this...Kudos Miller!
I have no memory of this Phantom you speak of.
i dont remember this at all.
When I saw the pic on the shirt in this article, I thought it was supposed to be Phantom Ganon from Windwaker.
Gotta admit, that is one cool shirt.
I thought the T-Shirt was of the Phantoms from The Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks when I first looked.
This tech kinda looks neat...kinda. Pretty ambitious for the time, but in many ways it mirrors what Onlive is trying(emphasis on trying) to accomplish, and I strongly feel that MS will have a subscription for their next console as well.
The lap deck thing was pretty sweet though.
Lol I actually stuck mine on the bay the other day, do you know it glows in the dark?
Brings back the E3 memories though. Was a very cool looking system and the keyboard/mouse board was great for playing Unreal which like KeeperX says was piped through a PC hidden behind the console. Happy days:)
It sounds very current-gen with Microsoft's subscription service and the online store. Unfortunately, I don't think there was any real games for it.
This is news to me. I've never heard of this.
At least the name was fitting.
