LucasArts have struck a very interesting deal with Blockbuster Video (US). It's basically an exclusive rental/sale agreement for the N64 version of Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine. I'll let part of the press release explain:
Indiana Jones' Debut On Nintendo 64 to be Available For Purchase or Rental Through Participating Blockbuster Stores Nationwide This December
SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- October 30, 2000 -- LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC today announced that Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine for Nintendo 64 will be distributed in December 2000 as a retail exclusive with Blockbuster stores nationwide. The action-packed game can be rented at participating Blockbuster store locations, as well as purchased on each company's Web site, www.blockbuster.com or companystore.lucasarts.com.
Nintendo 64 titles have consistently been one of the most popular video game rentals at Blockbuster, and the retailer will employ their "Guaranteed To Be There" program at participating store locations for Indy's Nintendo 64 debut. Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine also will be available as a previously played game (PPG) in Blockbuster stores following its new release period.
"This distribution arrangement represents a unique retail opportunity for LucasArts and Blockbuster and will greatly benefit Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine," says Mary Bihr, vice president, worldwide sales and marketing for LucasArts.
