Konami leaving Ster Kinekor

This is marked with a huge rumour tag right now as I only have one contact confirming this.

However I just received an email from a local retailer who phoned Ster Kinekor this morning to order some Metal Gear Solid 4 and was promptly told that Ster Kinekor no longer has the licence to distribute Konami titles.

If this is true then it would be the second major blow to SterKinekor gaming in less than a week and you would have to ask what is going on down there?

Again I have no official confirmation on this yet but as soon as I find something concrete I will be posting it up.

On a related point I also heard this morning that SK recently merged their home entertainment business with the gaming business and this could possibly be the catalyst behind these licences jumping ship?

If someone from SK would like to contact us and confirm either of these two rumours it would be greatly appreciated.
