About Us


The site’s header in 2004

Phantom Dusted is a fansite and community dedicated to the Xbox game Phantom Dust. It was created in 2004 as xboxphreaker.com by Michael Reilly (@PhantomDusted) and Ryan Payton (@ryanpayton). Before it was a Phantom Dust site it was a personal domain for keeping in contact with Xbox Live friends. I was interested in Phantom Dust and Ryan was covering the game’s development for EGM & 1Up.com from Japan. When Ryan broke the news to me that Microsoft would not be bringing the game to North America I was disappointed, but decided to import an Asian Xbox and copy of the game, which had an English language option. The forums became a meeting place for others that did the same and the site came online shortly after to spread the word about Phantom Dust, an amzaing game from Japan that most had never heard of. It was Majesco to the rescue when they secured the rights to publish Phantom Dust in North American and the rest, as they say, is history. Here we are some ten years later and getting ready to do it all over again! As always, the site’s aim is to provide Phantom Dust fans with the latest news, information, strategy guides, skill lists, arsenal builds, and a welcoming and helpful community. The Phantom Dust community is responsible for many of the guides here on the site as well as the online arsenal builder and the artwork! You can think of it as a fan-sourced fan site.
