Submission + - Rare 80's Video Footage of a Ms. Pac Man Factory (

Cutting_Crew writes: " Kotaku has some really neat 80's footage of a Ms. Pac factory in action.

The footage includes everything from soldering, wiring, testing the slot where the quarters go through, putting together the cabinetry and even testing the gameplay itself.

I wonder how many of these workers were geeks or fans of the game. Most of them probably had nightmares about working there and never had the desire to play it."
