September 27, 2002 -- San Jose, CA -- The GLOBAL VR booth was the center of attraction at the recent AMOA (Amusement Machine Operators Association) 2002, held in Las Vegas, September 19-21. According to key personnel, countless representatives of the international and domestic press swarmed the booth, attracted by the frenetic energy of the games and constant crowd of people in the booth.

This year, GLOBAL VR showed five of their flagship products the Vortek featuring the company's new yellow label title, Incoming and the ever- popular Beach Head 2002. An attract loop on dual monitors in the booth also featured a teaser of the company's newest venture -- a four-linkable version of Operation Blockade, which will be available early next year.

GLOBAL VR representatives also shared the latest brainstorm from the company, a new mini cabinet called the Beach Head 2000 PUP. The compact size has made this game a popular item in smaller locations. Beach Head 2000 PUP is also the only Beach Head upright on the market today.

There were 14 EA SPORTS™ PGA TOUR® GOLF units in the booth this year, of which eight were tournament-linked. The live tournament was a great success, with a distributor taking home the grand prize of a $500.00 Ping driver - just a hint of the fabulous prize pool Global VR has planned for the Tournament launch October 15th.

GLOBAL VR will be bringing their games to booth #5757 at IAAPA (International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions) November 19-23, 2003.
