There are supposed millions of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial video game cartridges in the landfill. The game is one of the worst in history and game maker Atari had a big failure on their hands. Rumor has it that the company just dumped the unsold inventory in a landfill.
Not everybody believes that story though. The excavation, planned for the weekend of April 26, will be filmed in a documentary led by Microsoft's Xbox Entertainment Studios. Microsoft said it would provide more details about the dig in the coming days.
Via this Reuters report. Watch below video footage of the E.T. video game.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
