Microsoft unearths long-lost Atari ET landfill
Microsoft has managed to locate and unearth the long-lost landfill where Atari disposed of the many unsold ET cartridges they were lumbered with back in the eighties.
The ET video game on the Atari 2600 has long-since slipped into gaming legend as one of the worst games of all time and part of the reason for the death of the company as a platform-holder in the games crash that happened in the 1980s.
As part of a new documentary, entitled Atari: Game Over, due to come to Xbox Live later this year Fuel Entertainment, the production company behind the documentary, managed to locate the fabled landfill and began excavating it this weekend.
Interestingly enough, it's not just ET that was found in the landfill. The excavation team also found copies of Centipede, Space Invaders and Asteroids.
