Newsbrief: During the North American video game crash of 1983, it was reported that Atari buried millions of copies of video game E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in a New Mexico landfill. Now a group of film companies have been given the go-ahead to dig the site up.

According to a report from Alamogordo News, the NMED Environmental Protection Division Solid Waste Bureau has approved a waste excavation plan by Xbox Entertainment Studios, allowing the company to dig the site up and hunt for the legendary buried games.

Alongside LightBox Entertainment, Xbox Entertainment is currently finalizing plans to begin the dig, through which is hopes to find evidence of the game cartridges.

The dig has been delayed for a long time, due to complaints from residents and chemical testing in the ground.
