Long story short, it had long been urban legend that Atari buried thousands of copies of ET for the Atari 2600 after the game flopped. It's considered by many to be possibly the worst console game...ever.
Having had it myself, I can verify it was indeed awful. Worst ever? Not sure about that.
I wonder if they'll find any of the Swordquest games too?
I've stayed away from games like WoW and the like simply because I'm not a PC gamer. However, a CONSOLE MMO is something I can get behind. And if the CoH/CoV crew is working on a Marvel MMO, then I'm definitely on board.
