E.T. and Other Atari Titles Dug Up In New Mexico Will Now Be Sold At Auction

By   /   Sep 11, 2014

Earlier this year, during an excavation of landfill in New Mexico, some copies of E.T: The Extra Terrestrial and few other Atari titles were dug up, and now it has been revealed that most of that content will be sold in an auction.

It has also been reported that over 800 Atari games were dug up from the landfill, which is quite a large number, but not all of them will be put on sale in the auction as 500 games will be distributed to the museums around the world.

I am sure that a lot of people would love to get their hands on these titles just to take a trip down memory lane.

According to a report from Reuters, the auction is set to begin in a couple of weeks and will stay on until Christmas.

The city of Alamogordo in New Mexico where this landfill is situated decided to sell off the games at the auction via city council voting, where auction won with a unanimous decision of 7-0 votes.

This dig up in New Mexico took place in April and was documented by the film crew of Microsoft for an exclusive documentary called Atari: Game Over, which is expected to see the light of day sometime this year.

Are you looking forward to purchase some Atari games from the upcoming auction?
