Nintendo of America
Tuesday said it was dropping out of January's Winter Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to participate exclusively in the Interactive Digital Software Association show in Los Angeles in May. Nintendo and its vendors are generally among the larger exhibitors at the Las Vegas show and were due to take up 51,000 square feet of the 1 million square feet show. The Electronic Industries Association, which puts on the Las Vegas show, called the effect of the dropout "minuscule," claiming that less than 14% of the people attending the show sell videogames.
Knight-Ridder Tuesday announced a reorganization of the management of its Business Information Services Division. David Ray resigned as president of BIS; his position will not be filled. Patrick Tierney remains president-CEO of Knight-Ridder Information and also will become a VP of Knight-Ridder, reporting to Exec VP John Fontaine.
