NINTENDO/GTE INTERACTIVE TO OFFER GAMES FOR INTERACTIVE-TV

     Nintendo of America Inc. and GTE Interactive Media have
teamed up to produce video games in a "collaboration aimed at
eventually channeling games over telephone lines into
interactive" TV sets.  The two companies announced that they have
agreed to develop, market and distribute video games, as well as
explore new technologies.  They will preview the their first
collaborative effort -- a game called FX Fighter -- at the
Consumer Electronics Show this weekend in Las Vegas.  The venture
"underscores the rapid convergence between the computer,
entertainment and telecommunications industries."  Sega had
previously announced a joint venture with TCI and Time Warner to
develop the Sega Channel (Jim Carlton, WALL STREET JOURNAL, 1/4).
