  • Well, that IS what it says on the front of the box. Was there any other product or packaging of the product that used the name "Microsoft Game Shop" with a different subtitle?
  • The box's back cover and the disks lacked the subtitle. I thought there was a version without the box for the book trade but I can't find an image of that.

    Box of Microsoft Game Shop has subtitle. My guess is Microsoft did not want to subtitle the box and disk because the name is too long to put on the box and disk. Microsoft Game Shop did same box design as Microsoft MASM 6.0 and Microsoft COBOL 4.5
