Atari Landfill To Be Unearth

Legend has it that Atari dumped 80s games and consoles at a landfill. Now a Canadian film production company wants to dig it up.

This story is for the true video game nerd. In 1982 the Atari 2600 game for the E.T. movie was so bad that Atari dumped millions of unsold copies at a landfill. At least this is the legend. The Atari landfill is supposedly in Alamogordo. A Canadian game production company now has a permit to dig at the landfill site according to KRQE News.

Fuel Industry has access to the landfill for the next six months. This time frame fits the 30th anniversary of the Atari dump. Note that it is not confirmed that Atari actually did dump the E.T. games back in the 80s. I guess Fuel Industry wants to make a documentary about the search and see if the legend is true or not.

So far Fuel Industries has not made any announcements in regards to the Atari landfill project.
