    The search for the buried ET games underway :)

    At last. The mythical landfill where millions of copies of Atari's notorious ET game have been buried is now being sought out.
    For those of you who are of a *AHEM* younger persuasion, ET was one of the earliest examples of a movie tie-in game. And as such was rushed out of development and critically panned by both reviewers and gamers alike. It was really that bad. you thought Duke Nukem Forever was bad? Well, ET was many magnitudes worse than that . If I recall my gaming history correctly Atari actually produced more copies than there were consoles sold such was the folly of this project!
    It was so bad that Atari buried the entire stock in a landfill. Millions of copies.
    Anyway the BBC have done an article on it here: BBC News - ET game excavation confirmed by studio

    If it's really that bad, leave it buried!

    So, they are releasing a new ET game? Or a film remake?

    What's the PR stunt for?
