At the celebration of Namco’s fiftieth anniversary (makers of such games as the Soul Calibur and Tekken series), an official award ceremony was thrown for Pac-man’s entry into the Guinness Book of Records as the most successful coin-op arcade machine ever. Unsurprising, when you consider that Namco sold a whopping 293,822 arcade cabinets from between 1980 and 1987.
Also re-assuring to see that the original Pac-man is finding new life as a mobile game. Just ignore all that Pac-man Adventure/Pac-man World crap.
