ET: The Extra-Terrestrial game carts found, just like urban myth had us believe, in New Mexico. The legend of the game stemmed around Atari apparently burying unsold copies of the ET game in New Mexico landfill after an unsuccessful launch in 1982.
The discovery was captured by a documentary team from Fuel Entertainment who are producing an exclusive series for Xbox Originals and proves that the story, which has become games industry legend over the last 30 years, is very much true.
Xbox Live’s Major Nelson was on hand and uploaded a number of photos of the cartridges being excavated to his Twitter page.
