So, Space Invaders was kinda cool back in the day (I was more of a Defender and Asteroids kind of guy) but I think this is just dumb
Japanese game machine maker Taito Corp said on Friday it plans to restart sales of "Space Invaders" in the United States, almost 25 years after the game first appeared in video arcades.
Taito aims to sell 10,000 of the stand-alone game machines at 300,000 yen (U.S. $2,772) a unit.
Uh, $2,772? that's a pretty big price to pay for nostalgia and a meagre amount of technology. And besides, Geometry Wars
is way cooler.
