Xbox Entertainment Studios has teamed up with two-time Academy Award-winning producer Simon Chinn (Searching for Sugar Man and Man on Wire) and Emmy-winning producer Jonathan Chinn (FX’s 30 Days and PBS’s American High) to investigate one of the biggest mysteries in video game history. In 1983 The Atari Corporation purportedly buried millions of unsold copies of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial after an unprecedented negative response to the game resulted in very poor sales . The game has been called one of the worst video games ever created and it was one of biggest commercial failures in video gaming history. It has also been linked to the infamous video game industry crash (aka Atari shock ) of 1983.
Filmmaker Zak Penn will film the excavation of the landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico where the games were supposedly dumped by Atari. The documentary will begin filming in January and it will also explore the rise and fall of Atari itself.
"When Simon and Jonathan Chinn approached me about this story, I knew it would be something important and fascinating,” said Penn. “I wasn’t expecting to be handed the opportunity to uncover one of the most controversial mysteries of gaming lore.”
UPDATE (12/2013) #2: PlayStation 4 IN STOCK ($399) at Amazon! "Want it by Monday, Dec. 23? Choose One-Day Shipping at checkout."
UPDATE (12/20/13): Meijer's overpriced (around $120 over SRP) bundle is back, but its Express Shipping says you can get the this "item between Wednesday, Dec 25 and Thursday, Dec 26"
This is your last chance to be a Christmas hero or a Christmas zero! The Sony PlayStation 4 has been in and out of stock at various retailers all week. Some retailers like Meijer and RadioShack have been offering slightly overpriced bundles (around $60 over the SRP), while others like TRU have had legitimate bundles with two games for around $500. So you can potentially still nab a PS4 with two-day shipping and receive the console before Christmas. At the time of this post, the PS4 is currently in stock at both the Sony Store and Walmart. Hit the links below to purchase one now!
UPDATE: The Sony Knack bundle is now showing an estimated shipping date of 12-30-2013.
UPDATE #2: The Walmart page now reads "This item will not arrive before Christmas." Your only chance now to receive a console before Christmas is to sign up for free PS4 alerts and hope Amazon or GameStop restock it before 3 PM EST/12 AM PST today.
UPDATE #3: PS4 Console Solution Bundle with Choice of Accessory and Game - Walmart "Pre-order now, and receive your PS4 console before January 10, 2014-- guaranteed!"
LG announced today that it will unveil its 21.5-inch Chromebase computer at next month's Consumer Electronics Show. The all-in-one computer is equipped with a 1080p IPS display, an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of memory, 16GB of storage, and Google's Chrome OS. The computer ships with its own keyboard, mouse, speakers, and webcam, but it can also be used as a monitor for another PC, according to The Verge.
"While the computer comes with its own keyboard, mouse, speakers, webcam, USB ports and networking, it sounds like it can also still act as a monitor for another PC, thanks to an HDMI input around back. Theoretically, you could use Chrome OS as a quick-booting operating system for simple tasks when you don't want to fire up the full setup."
Titanfall is one of the most highly-anticipated next-generation games launching in 2014. Even though it will not be available until March 11, the Collector's Edition is almost guaranteed to sell out before its release. You've been warned! Pre-order the limited edition Collector's set now, or you'll be stuck with the basic version come next year.
The limited edition Collector's Edition is only available for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. It includes a copy of the game, an exclusive collectible individually numbered Titan statue, full-size, Hardcover art book featuring over 190 pages of rare concept art, and an exclusive full-size schematic poster of the Atlas Titan.
UPDATE (12/06/13): A leaked Best Buy flyer has revealed they will be carrying the PlayStation 4 this Sunday.
While late holiday shoppers may be stuck paying high scalper prices for the PlayStation 4, it looks like there will be enough Xbox One consoles to go around for the holiday shopping season. The Xbox One has been in stock for hours at Amazon.com, and GameStop is featuring it in their latest weekly ad.
Even though it looks like the Xbox One will be in stock throughout the holidays, shoppers should take advantage now because there is no way to know how much stock is really available. Just ask the PS4 shoppers we warned to pre-order months ago, who are now stuck without a console.
UPDATE: (12/06/13) Epic Bundle ($800) Now In Stock! Will ship by 12/17/13.
FINAL UPDATE: What a crazy Cyber Monday. We hope someone was able to get a PlayStation 4 during all of today's chaos. If you still didn't get one, please sign up for free PlayStation 4 notifications. It may be your only chance to buy one before the holidays. You can also get an Xbox One here.
UPDATE #4: Out of Stock!
GameStop Cyber Bundle In Stock! Just hit the "Add to Cart" button. It should take you to the check out page.
UPDATE: The Walmart bundle keeps going in and out of stock rapidly. Some customers are reporting that they were able to buy one through the mobile site when it was not available on the website, and vice versa... So keep trying!
To pre-order your PS4 bundle from Walmart you must select 1 accessory and 1 game before you can checkout. Sometimes the blue "Select" button is missing from the site, while this typically means the bundle is sold out, you should try refreshing the page a few times before giving up.
UPDATE #2: It looks like all the Walmart Holiday Bundles may be gone for good. You can check back here at 1:00 PM EST for more links, or sign up for free PlayStation 4 alerts and hope it comes back in stock somewhere else. Good luck! We will be updating this page all day today.
UPDATE #3: It looks like the Amazon rumors may have been false.
It looks like one of the Cyber Monday rumors were true. Walmart is now accepting pre-orders for the PlayStation 4 Holiday Solution Bundle. Shoppers who pre-order now are guaranteed to receive the bundle before Christmas. The bundle includes your choice of accessory and game for $517, which is much better than paying over $700 on eBay for a basic console.
Amazon is also rumored to be holding onto PlayStation 4 stock for Cyber Monday. Unlike most retailers, Amazon typically releases stock during the day. We will update this page with links if and when they become available.

LEGO's Minecraft set 21102 was one of the most popular and hardest to find holiday gifts in 2013. This year LEGO released two more sets and they're already selling out at most retailers.

There is a two set limit per customer and each set retails for $40.
