  1. 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?

  4. Did you think that things like the special edition for Persona 4: Golden were rare? Sure, 10,000 units of a game isn't that much but if you look back in time you're bound to find many games with far fewer units available. Take for example a game called Red Sea Crossing for the Atari 2600, which until 2007, wasn't even known to exist by the Atari collecting community. The story went that someone found this incredibly rare cart (no one had ever seen it before) at a yard sale. No one was ready to believe this person until eagle-eyed collectors managed to find a handful of magazine ads for the game. So it did exist and there were so few copies that this was the only one that anyone knew about. Recently, another copy was found by a shop owner. Apparently he did his research though and has been using Red Sea Crossing to try and draw more attention to his store. Either way, it appears the owner of the first cartridge is using the current fame of the game to sell his cart. The price is now at five thousand dollars and still hasn't met the seller's reserve. With days to go it may still see a bidding war. Atari collectors are a pretty hardcore bunch when it comes to procuring incredibly rare games. For reference, the last high-priced Atari auction was around thirty thousand for a copy of Air Raid, of which only a little under 20 copies were known to exist. How about this game? There are only two confirmed copies of Red Sea Crossing out there, although the coder behind it has noted there may be a few hundred in storage somewhere.
