Nintendo's UK distribution operation is to be taken over by Planet, after the Menzies subsidiary THE Games gave up the contract recently, report MCV in a newsflash this evening. The distribution deal will ensure that Nintendo's distribution to retail will remain constant and that the Eastleigh premises formerly occupied by THE Games will be retained. A number of the THE operational staff will join Planet as well. "With the logistics infrastructure of THE Games and the financial backing of Big Ben Interactive in France, we can now offer any retailer a complete all formats solution on a pan-European basis," a spokesman informed the press. Whether this means the online media in the UK will finally gain access to review materials is rather uncertain. When we last checked, the Internet was still a grey area for THE/Nintendo UK. Hopefully things are to change. Related Feature - GameCube : The Science Bit
