Atari-Game-Over-due-for-release-this-monthAfter teasing retro gamers with a trailer of Atari: Game Over, the film's director has stated that the documentary looking into the gaming giant's collapse and their infamous landfill site is due to hit Xbox Video later this month.

Through various interviews, inside stories and of course a full feature on the digging that took place earlier this year, Atari: Game Over looks set to finally debunk the many mysteries and rumours surrounding E.T. and Atari's inevitable demise.

Despite the studio behind this production - Xbox Entertainment Studios - no longer being in business, the film's director Zak Penn told his many followers on Twitter that the film would be making its début on Xbox Video on the 20th of November - with no release date set as of yet for other digital distribution platforms.

Have been looking forward to this film since I first heard about it. Such a shame that Microsoft have made redundant the studio behind it.

Yeah totally.
Would've made much more sense to release this on a DVD / Bluray.
Maybe even in a beat-up E.T. box.

Now THAT I would snatch right up off the shelf.
