Urban Legend Proven: Atari Buried Tons Of ET Game Cartridges And Systems In Landfill And They’ve Been…

The Extra Terrestrial and hardware that had bombed as well so they had them all trucked out of California and dumped/buried in the Almagordo, New Mexico desert landfill. This legend has been around ever since.
It’s a legend no more. Today in New Mexico the proof has been unearthed and IGN had people there documenting it.
