New Manufacturing efficiencies enable lower pricing

SAN JOSE, Calif - (June 4, 2007) - GLOBAL VR is pleased to announce that corporate initiatives to reduce costs have achieved the desired results and will enable the company to reduce pricing on some existing, as well as future products. Effective immediately, GLOBAL VR will offer Ultrapin Video Pinball at a significantly lower price. Additionally, the base unit will include twelve (12) of the most highly recognizable pinball games ever developed.

Ken Bayer, GLOBAL VR's Executive VP of Operations was happy to report, "Due to the high demand for Ultrapin in our international markets, we were able to streamline certain operational procedures and provide pricing relief for all of our customers. We are now on the second manufacturing run for this unique game and the new price is reflective of the advantages that our manufacturing efficiencies can provide."

Company President and CEO, Jim DeRose added, "Making high-quality games at affordable prices has always been our objective." He went on to point out, "Customers may recall that we recently reduced the price of GLOBAL VR's hit title Need for Speed Underground by a substantial amount. This game continues to show very solid earnings and we will be releasing the Carbon update in 2008. As such, we believe it represents an excellent value for our customers. We are confident that everyone will continue to see evidence of our commitment to the industry reflected in the attractive pricing of the games GLOBAL VR will be introducing, soon."
