Those carts are going to be worth some serious money now. How ironic. They were buried because they couldn't sell, and now people are going to be willing to shell out a fortune just to own one.


I thought so too, but on the contrary, if you look on eBay, the sales of a "Brand New" sealed copy is around $30.

Earthbound, from the brief time I've played it recently, was TERRIBLE. I couldn't get past the beginning. Couldn't take the buttons and layout of the game. Must be a "had to play it when it came out" type deal.

Oh, ok, that makes more sense. I'm betting everything they've un-Earthed goes into a museum.

True enough, but I wouldn't put it past someone to pay more for a "fabled landfill" edition.

LOL That would be awesome! Just think of the promotion.
"Why buy 'THAT' version when you can buy THIS version! Comes with REAL dirt!"

I meant the ones for the landfill, if they were sold. People would pay a lot for one. Heck, if I had money to burn I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one myself.

I meant that too. How would you be able to tell the difference? The dirt?
If that's the case I'd buy a cheap one from eBay, grab some dirt from my back yard and sell it for $500.

Sweet. They should re-release it on the new consoles as a download in all its glory :-) Who wouldn't buy that?


I still have the Atari 2600 version. That game really is awful. It would be interesting to see if Xbox One could play it though.
