Everyone knows about the infamously bad Atari 2600 game E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and how millions of the cartridges were supposedly buried in an Alamogardo, New Mexico landfill. Its commercial failure is even claimed to be a contributing factor in the video game industry crash of 1983.
Well, after 30 years of being in the cold, hard ground, all those cartridges will be dug up and finally see the light of day again. Film production company, Fuel, has been allowed by Alamogardo's City Commission to access the landfill for six months and create a documentary on the excavation.
Alamogardo's mayor, Susie Galea, hopes this will bring attention to the town.
What do you think about the infamous E.T. cartridges being dug up after 30 years? Do you believe that there are even cartridges buried?
