SEATTLE, Sept. 12, 2006 — Phantom Entertainment, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PHEI) today announced it has contracted with VertiCity, a global software development firm, to modify the Company’s Phantom(R) Game Service software for Windows XP and Windows XP Media Center operating systems.
“The Phantom Game Service software was originally engineered to run on a Windows XP embedded operating system as a standalone configuration managed by our service and content servers,” noted Greg Koler, President and CEO of Phantom Entertainment. “We intend to modify our software to run in the user-controlled PC environment.
“We expect the Phantom Game Service PC client software will be ready during the first quarter of 2007,” Koler said. “This move will enable the Company to license the Phantom Game Service technology to well-established manufacturers of PCs and digital home entertainment centers.
“The Company remains committed to its original mission of delivering the first end-to-end, on-demand game service. Our course has been altered to deliver this service to PCs as well as to entertainment centers in the comfort of the living room,” Koler explained.
The Company is on schedule to proceed with manufacturing of the Phantom(R) Lapboard, a combination wireless keyboard, laser mouse and hard surface that enables users to work or play games from any comfortable setting. The Company expects to begin shipping in November.
