A documentary film production company searching a New Mexico landfill has found hundreds of the Atari "E.T." game cartridges that some call the worst video game ever made.
Film director Zak Penn showed one "E.T." cartridge retrieved from the dumpsite and says there are hundreds more mixed in the mounds of trash and dirt scooped by a backhoe.
Fuel Entertainment is producing a documentary about the search.
The video game's commercial failure was partially responsible for the demise of Atari in the early 1980s.
The contents of the "Atari Grave" have become urban legend, with blog posts speculating about millions of cartridges and other Atari projects buried there.
A spokeswoman for Atari says the company changed hands many times since 1983 and doesn't know what is buried there.
