engineering and product development.

library of over 500 games with 22 content providers
representing over 30% of the PC games market including
4 of the top 10 PC publishers.
A few of the games included:
Baldur’s Gate 2 Centipede
Barbie Civilization 3
Bloodrayne Deer Hunter
Dark Age of Camelot Monopoly

Market Shifting to Streaming
A recent report by Ars Technica stated that:
“with the rise of Hulu, YouTube, Veoh and many more, it's streaming traffic that
now generates concern for ISPs, even as P2P drops off in some cases. The shift,
should it become a permanent trend, is good for everyone. ”
Ars Technica reports that with the availability of streaming technologies being
made more accessible and user friendly the public is beginning to lower their usage
of P2P and illegal file sharing in favor of using easy to use legal alternatives such as
streaming video, music and games.
The market is shifting to streaming at a rapid pace as broadband internet becomes
widely available and offered at higher speeds and users become accustomed to
using services such as YouTube where they can watch what they want On-Demand
without having to take up space on their PC.
Game Developer Speaks
(Sept. 10th 2008 Article)
As a response to the CEO of GameStop’s remarks against digital
distribution, the CCO of Acclaim Entertainment had this to say:
“He says we are 12-17 years away from downloading games digitally? I
know he's got to pretend that digital distribution isn't relevant (or any kind
of threat) to protect his stock price, but I guess Steve Jobs is miles off
course then (100,000,000 digital downloads in the first 60 days of opening
Apple's 'Digitally Distributed' App Store.) Or that iTunes is now the biggest
music retailer in the world.”
“What is the Amazon strategy? What is the Netflix strategy? To distribute
Game Developer Speaks
(Sept. 10th 2008 Article) Continued
“Finally, he made some crazy reference that quot;Publishers are afraid to
death of piracy.quot; Yet, as we know, piracy can be tamed by server
authentication. China is the living proof of this, where they have a
non-existent console media business, and a thriving digitally
downloaded industry. A digital distribution industry which grew
69.5% last year.”
“I personally feel GameStop is just blindly putting their foot on the
gas pedal to speed up digital distribution (thanks to their policies); if
they are smart they will be investing very, very heavily in digital
distribution if they want their company to still exist in 12-17 years.”
The current “competition” is focused entirely on 2nd window
release content which they only get AFTER the games are no
longer sold in retail. Also, they have a gigantic library of lackluster
titles that don’t sell and cause harm to the overall user experience.
CONTENT, CONTENT, CONTENT
Phantom Game Service will have the best catalog of games by
solving the problem of securing NEW RELEASE 1st window. We will
focus on quality of content over quantity, unlike our competition,
and aim to have only the top selling casual and hardcore games to
maximize our return on investment and to provide less clutter and
better experience for our users.
We have aligned with the FASTEST network in the world carrying
30% of the internet’s traffic and are utilizing their performance
based edge hosting.
Our software was built by some of the greatest minds in the
streaming world and is an intelligent technology that is a BRAIN and
continuously adapts and learns how to increase game performance
every time a game is played.
Phantom Game Service will form strategic partnerships in
several vertical markets including the following industries:
Cable Companies, Phone Companies, Movie Rentals,
Hotels, Retailers and Social Networking Sites.
Short list of companies we are pursuing:
Savvis, Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, Facebook,
MySpace, AOL, Google and Blockbuster.

AAA Content Strategy
• Share our revenues with Big Box Retailers in
exchange for co-marketing support. This
allows them a reoccurring revenue stream and
doesn’t take any of their shelf-space.
• Go after AAA games which have been blocked
by Game Publishers due to the fear of losing
their retail partners.
Low-Cost Marketing Strategy
Phantom Gaming Service will initially take advantage of Phantom
Gaming System’s brand awareness and comeback story to keep
marketing costs low and easily get the media’s attention and have
the whole internet talking.
“Did you hear Phantom is back?!”
We have developed an automated online co-op marketing portal
which allows website owners to automatically receive commissions
from sales revenue generated by the customers they send to us.
We are positioning ourselves with FaceBook and other Social Media
and Web 2.0 sites for co-op marketing opportunities.
