British retailer MVC has become the first major sales outlet to concede that it is planning to eliminate the Nintendo 64 from its stock following the holidays. The chain, currently in the midst of expanding from 80 to 100 stores, hopes to use discounts to move out its remaining stock before its competitors do the same. The retailer began the discounting last week, and is selling games at cost plus VAT. Nintendo rejects talk of death for the N64 and is gearing up for a major holiday push in the United Kingdom. Added Dick Francis, managing director of Nintendo's UK distributor, "Do not underestimate the power of Pokemon."
