The problem is where the story is, the story is ET caused the final nail in the coffin for the console North American video game crash of 1983, atari needed all of their copies of the game quickly destroyed because they were not selling. So they supposively destroyed a unknown number of cartages and dumped them in a land fill. The recent "Uneathering" of the Atari Land Fill presented to you by microsoft is one of time wasted. They really only showed 8 possible copies of ET and one of centipede a game that sold well. Think about it a landfill from the 80's could easily hold this many copies from a single retail store dumping their games.
This "unearthing" documentry is hosted by microsoft a company that has repeatively lied just this year. You really need to look at the silverlining here they wanted this story exclusively. They wanted full control over it and wanted to make money big time from it. If it wasn't real they wouldn't make a damn thing off of it and they would have wasted time and plenty of money just doing this.
Still not convinced, well lets look at Microsofts agenda alone in just the last year. Windows 8.1 released, it added in spyware and features that you could turn off for onedrive but it was still DOING regaurdless of your concent. These features include syncing your settings, your history, passwords for networks, homegroups, a list of every application you have, your file explorer settings, backgrounds, app data, and much much more. If you turn off this in the installation process it is all still on, you have to look through your settings to turn it off and it is still going on. IF you block all microsoft servers with a application like peerblock then you will be greated with a guest account with no permissions and a blank desktop when you login & out, they check for a connection then they check if you can connect to microsofts servers if they find a connection to something like google.com with a basic ping command and not microsoft servers you are entirely locked down. This means they are still doing it even though you turned it off. All of these features being enabled by default regaurdless of what you pick in the installation process is a invasion of privacy and spyware.
Why would you trust a companys word when all they do is lie to their users and spy on everything they do. Yes you can say I am biased against Microsoft and anything they do because they do everything that they do for their own benefits with very little consideration for everyone else involved. They give people a reason to not trust them more than they do to trust them, they are like Edie from ed edd and eddie. Always looking for a way to make more money for more jaw breakers even if it doesn't work by lieing, cheating, and stealing. Not caring about anyone else but themselves and abusing everyone else for those jaw breakers, jaw breakers being other companies. Which then get them more money.
My major problem with this story is they only showed possibly 8 different cartages shown why waste time and effort just to dump 8 cartages and never disclose this information?
