ATARI landfill dump site to be excavated!
By Atarifreak on 2014-08-01

In September of 1983, Atari is rumored to have dumped literally millions of ET, PAC-MAN, and other cartridges, as well as unsold consoles and other items into a landfill in New Mexico. Now, a film crew is about to do an excavation of the site, perhaps giving some closure to this dark period in ATARI history. Who knows? Maybe some of what is recovered will still be in good shape, and be sold after all!
