LET THE GAMES BEGIN WITH MICROSOFT, VERBATIM PROMOTION

 CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- A joint Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Verbatim Corporation promotion called "Microsoft(R) Games Sampler" provides you with a free disk containing four fully operational games, one from each of Microsoft's four different Entertainment Packs. What's more, you also receive mail-in rebates good for two free floppy disks or a $2 rebate on your next data cartridge purchase.
 The promotion is available in specially-marked packages of Verbatim brand floppy disks and retail packaged quarter-inch data cartridges. Part one of the two-pronged software-packed promotion begins in July and runs through September 1993. Part two, featuring four different games, runs from Ocrober through December 1993.
 "During this promotion you not only get high quality floppies or data cartridges, you get four free games from the Microsoft Entertainment Pack series as well," says Daune Morris, Verbatim promotions manager. "Once you try these games, you will want more."
 "Quality Verbatim disks alone are a good value. When you add these four games from the best-selling Microsoft Entertainment Packs for Windows(TM), you have a super value," says Josh Davidson, product manager at Microsoft's Entertainment Product Unit.
 The games will be packed in Verbatim DataLife 5.25" high density IBM formatted floppy disks, as well as in both IBM formatted and unformatted 3.5" double density and high density floppy disks. The games will be available by mail with Verbatim DC600A, DC6150, DC6250, DC2000, DC2120, and DC2120 QIC 80 format retail packaged data cartridges.
