CEX Abandons GameCube

Nintendo puts the pressure on high-level retail execs

Computer Exchange or CEX, the popular UK-based games retailer, has withdrawn all of its Nintendo GameCube stock, including consoles, software and accessories. It seems that Nintendo has applied some pressure above store-level, and the company is no longer to stock GameCube paraphernalia. We spoke to a couple of stores - one in Watford - and neither was able to elaborate on the withdrawal. Nobody at Computer Exchange was available to comment either, but the company has confirmed that its stores will no longer feature GameCube material. After Sony's court victory over Channel Technology last week, the goalposts have been moved as far as the grey import market is concerned, and we fear CEX won't be the only victim.
