By now, we should all know that Pac-Man has turned 30 years old (link only good for May 21st, 2010), as it was first released all the way back in 1980. Sadly, I wasn’t born to witness the birth of one of the large game icons in history, but of course, I’ve played the game through the years from the arcade to the iPhone.
It’s a unique game that many are still fascinated by, and while I’m not very good at it, I remember spending so many coins on the arcade machines, probably spending more than $20 on one sit through. This game icon surviving for 30 years is quite a large feat, and we definitely congratulate Namco for passing that milestone.
But we’re not the only ones happy for Namco, as Namco themselves seem to be in a great mood. They’ve lowered the price of some of the Pac-Man games in the App Store to $0.99, while the original iPhone and iPad version went down to $3.99.

Along with the fire sale, Namco has announced their upcoming Pac-Man title Pac-Match Party, which is described as, “Collect gifts or chomp on cakes and power pellets to get through this PAC-MAN-themed Match-3 title.”
