Dig for ET Atari Cartridges Was a Success

Most gamers have heard the urban legend that Atari's ET game was so horrible, the studio couldn't sell the millions of copies they published. As a result, they buried the remaining copies in a landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico. The story was always a fun one, especially since that ET game is still held up as the worst game ever created, and many people, like me, wanted that tale to be true.

It turns out that it is.

A three-hour dig over the weekend unearthed numerous Atari cartridges, and yes, many of them were of ET: The Extra-Terrestrial.

An unnamed gaming enthusiast pieced together where this landfill would have been in 1983. Microsoft's Xbox TV will air a documentary about the search for the dig site, complete with live footage of the dig, confirming that one gamer's stellar detective work.

For the first time in 30 years, people are actually excited about that ET game (but still no one wants to play it).
