Infogrames reported that it has sold its distribution channels to Namco Bandai. That means Atari (owner of Infogrames) is no publisher anymore but only a label. It also means that the old distribution channels (europe, US) started by Philips Media (American Interactive Media in the USA) now belong to Namco Bandai. According to the press release, the distribution channels were put in a joint venture named 'Distribution Partners', which will be the new name of what once was called Philips Media (as a publisher).
