Possible Landfill Excavation of E.T. Games Could Be Harmless or Horrific

8CN: It was recently announced that a New Mexico landfill, where it is thought that millions of old copies of the infamously bad E.T. Atari game are buried, is set to be excavated. This could either be a great boon to the video game industry, totally harmless, or a terrible nightmare. Let me explain. (Atari, Culture, Retro, Xbox One)

Wtf I thought this was a satire post

I'm sure it will make for a good documentary but what do they want with the cartridges?

Satire because you didn't know that this is actually rumoured to of happened? It certainly is the coolest/strangest video gaming urban legend of our time and we may finally find out if its true. Would be a great sight to see.

Cover it in sand a say you found it in the desert and watch the price rocket on eBay.

This is ridiculous. When and if they are recovered? Then what? I'm not wasting my money on it again, even if this one has someone's diaper goo on it!

Just give it to McHale. He likes soiling himself in adult diapers.

Just a video game excavation, I find it interesting personally.

The only value that could even come from this is if the cartridges get recycled. No one wants to play that turd and they aren't exactly in short supply. And it's not like it would be some shocking revelation; companies dumping something that they can't sell isn't new.

IMO they should leave the cartridges there to preserve the legend

The catriges were buried onto cement though so even if it was recovered they would be useless
