Pac-Man celebrates 30 with sales, video and a car

You probably already know this thanks to the awesome that is Google, but Pac-Man turns 30 today! The little yellow dot has been chomping down on smaller white dots for quite some time now and in celebration Namco Bandai is throwing out a slew of sales on Pac-Man games for the iPhone and also holding a contest for a Pac-Man themed Smart Car. There’s also the above video featuring people sharing their Pac-Man knowledge.

You can check out the sales below the jump and also see a list of games that will net you a PC version of Pac-Man for just 99 cents. If you feel like winning that smart car all you have to do is head over to the Pacster’s official page and enter. While you’re there you can read all about the history of Pac-Man and check out the plethora of games he’s starred in. The little yellow guy is quite a consumer whore.

Did you know that you can’t legally park one of those Smart Cars perpendicular to the curb in most states? Lame.
