Last June, it was announced that Fuel Entertainment, a Canadian studio, were to search a former landfill site in New Mexico where E.T. cartridges, Atari’s much-criticised 2600 VCS game, were rumoured to be buried, and they were looking for fund-raising, after having got permission from the city of Alamogordo to excavate.
E.T. was was among the first to be licensed from a film franchise and was based on the incredible Steven Spielberg film, which eventually had a Blu-ray release in October 2012, 30 years after the U.S. cinema release.
While we await the documentary about all this, Xbox Entertainment Studios did the deed and found those cartridges!
