Xbox Has Landfill Dig for Atari Games Approved
Permission has been granted for a film crew to excavate a landfill suspected of containing millions of unsold Atari game cartridges.
The dig is searching for a cache of cartridges, including copies of Atari’s utterly disastrous E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial adaptation as part of an original documentary for Xbox.
It was initially blocked as the New Mexico Environment Department requires digs of this nature to have an approved waste excavation plan. The original WEP was rejected in February for being too vague but the Alamogodo News reports that a new submission has been approved with the addition of some terms and conditions.
