[EDIT] Ουυυπς μπορεί να μετακινηθεί στο 7800;Ever wanted to get your hands on the original code to the Atari source code to such classic games as Commando, Joust, and Xevious? Well, now you can, though definitely not through official channels as Inquisitr reported.
Rather, it's a result of the trashcan rescue efforts of an Atari enthusiast. As he points out beneath the download links, "these wouldn't exist if I hadn't of climbed into a filthy dumpster at 3am in the morning behind the old Atari building in Sunnyvale and salvaged them and restored them from their diskettes."
Unfortunately, just because Atari threw out the disks and they became public property as a result that doesn't mean the source code contained on them is up for grabs. As a commenter on Slashdot points out, an author can throw out a copy of his or her own book without forfeiting the copyright.
Either way, it only matters if Atari decides it does. There's plenty of money to be made porting classic games to more modern platforms like the iPhone, Wii, and just about every other device with a few extra ounces of processing power.
Is a takedown notice forthcoming? We'll probably find out soon. With the noise on Slashdot and coverage elsewhere, Atari has no doubt heard about this already.
