         Joe Lewandowski, a consultant for the film companies that documented the dig, says some "E.T. The Extra Terrestrial" cartridges and other titles will be kept off until the very end.

         More than 700 games have been sold around the U.S. and abroad, bringing in thousands of dollars to Alamogordo.

         One of the "E.T." game cartridges was added to the Smithsonian's video game history collection.
