The E.T. Excavation Documentary Atari: Game Over Is Available For Free On Xbox
The much-anticipated documentary that found the legendary buried cache of Atari E.T. game cartridges is now available on Xbox Video for free.
The documentary, entitled Atari: Game Over, has been well documented in the last two years. The filmmakers went on the trail - and eventually found - a large cache of E.T. cartridges that had allegedly been buried in the desert outside of Alamogordo, New Mexico.
Here's the film's Xbox Video page.

I've been waiting to see this film for some time. I've always found the legend (now proven true) of the buried E.T. cartridges to be a fascinating bit of game history. The movie will also stand as one of the few successes of Microsoft's now-shuttered Xbox Entertainment division.
