Japan's Taito corporation is going all out to promote the 30th anniversary of the classic arcade game Space Invaders. Teaming with Yahoo Japan, Taito set up a page on the Internet where anyone can play the old school game without popping in a quarter or flashing a credit card here (warning: just like the old days, the online version is quite addictive).
In addition to the online game Taito also announced Space Invaders Extreme, a game so violently kaleidoscopic and chaotic that it can only be described as some game programmer's bad acid trip after a marathon week of watching para para dance videos in some cramped Shibuya capsule hotel. Get your barf bag and check a sample video of the game here. The game will be available for the Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS in June.
