Atari: Game Over Doc Which Found ET the Game Coming November 20th

You remember the stories, the myths, the legends - that Atari dumped tonnes of copies of ET the Game in a New Mexican landfill. And then, it turned out the whole thing was actually true when some enterprising sorts went digging earlier in 2014.

So that makes the supposed dramatic highlight of the film a little bit spoiled but the rest of doc deals with better days at Atari before the company eventually fell over in 1984 - party due to ET but mostly because of the massive video game crash which hit in 1983.

The doc comes from Xbox Entertainment Studios, a Microsoft project which had already closed its doors at the time of writing. Atari Game Over and Halo Nightfall were its only completed projects.

Atari Game Over comes exclusively to Xbox Live on the 20th of November 2014.
