E.T. Atari Cartridges Found In Landfill
The myth is true! Well sort of.
Earlier in the month we told you about an upcoming documentary funded by Microsoft's Entertainment Studios that sought to learn the truth behind the urban legend that truckloads of unsold copies of the terrible Atari game based on Steven Spielberg's E.T. The Extraterrestrial were disposed of in landfills in New Mexico.
Yesterday construction workers on the dig unearthed proof that it could all be true.
"Construction crews have uncovered copies of the Atari 2600 game at a landfill deep in the New Mexico desert, near the city of Alamogordo."
“Copies” doesn't exactly mean that a metric ton of them were found or anything but more could still be out there and most myths have a kernel of truth to them somewhere don't they?
