Atari Games From The Dig To Be Sold

Game Informer has released information regarding the Alamogordo, New Mexico excavation of the infamous E.T. burial site.  The State of New Mexico is going to be selling 700 of the 1,300 copies recovered from the dig site soon.

Before doing so, they will have the copies reviewed, and certified first.

"We have been working with the space museum for curation, both for displaying and selling the games; they are now artifacts," Alamogordo mayor Susie Galea recently told Polygon. "The City Commission acted on Tuesday to give 100 of the games to (documentary production companies) Lightbox and Fuel Entertainment. There are 700 that we can sell."
Prices have not yet been established on each copy of the surviving title, as they are still in the process of certifying and appraising the cartridges.
