Sega Genesis GAME FACTORY BLUE & GAME FACTORY GREEN Blockbuster Video Game Cartridges

Looks like the price has finally gone up a bit on these.

Blockbuster Game Factory was a service offered in 1994. Blockbuster would offer consumers the Sega Mega Drive games of their choice, which they would flash over dial-up onto a reprogrammable cartridge. The idea behind the service was that Blockbuster would have the entire Mega Drive software library available to rent, ending the problem of not being able to find a game to rent because someone else already rented it. The service was successful at first, but the combination of slow speed of dial-up (causing consumer satisfaction to drop) and issues licensing games for release caused the service was discontinued.

It is unknown if the service had any exclusive games, alternate revisions of existing games, was available outside the United States, or covered other consoles. It is also unknown if the cartridges had any data on them before being flashed with a game.

There has also been a long rumored Red Version, but one has never shown up.
