Space Invaders Making A Comeback... In The Original Form

from the no-need-to-update-a-classic dept

There are plenty of old video games that have been getting an "update" lately. These are games that have the same title as a game from decades ago, but are otherwise almost entirely different. This isn't a surprise, considering the vast difference in gaming technology. However, sometimes, people just want the original classic. Taito is planning to start selling the arcade machines of "Space Invaders" again - twenty five years after it was originally introduced. It's not an update, but the same game that was such a big hit years ago (and one of the first video games I ever played). The only difference has to do with inflation. It'll now cost $0.50 per play instead of the old standard of $0.25.

    Yes, bring it back. And bring back Asteroids too. And Galaga.

    Set up an over-30 section at the arcade and keep those pesky kids out.

    Actually, a lot of guys who were scrounging for quarters in the 80's could probably afford to buy one of these things for their own rec room - if they can get it past their wives.
