This week's GameFly video game rental charts for North America, specifically relating to games rented via the games-by-mail service for the week ending October 24th, show popularity over multiple game formats. It does even a crusty, blackened heart good to see that anticipation, word of mouth, and positive media attention have pushed Shadow of the Colossus, Fumito Ueda's follow-up to Ico, to debut at #1 not just on the PlayStation 2 chart but the all-format rental chart this week. Pardon us, we have something in our eye … after that, SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy Seals, another first-party Sony title, drops to #2, and The Warriors, Rockstar Games' latest M-rated title, shows up at #3. The same three titles show up in the same order on the PlayStation chart, a fact which we can't even be blasé about because it means another #1 for Shadow of the Colossus. On the Xbox, where two of the three games have no footing, The Warriors rises to the top to claim the turf for its own, followed by Blitz: The League and Ultimate Spider-Man. On the GameCube, the rather sudden slippage of Pokémon XD out of the top three didn't stop Nintendo from dominating the upper echelons of the list once again. The new champ is Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance at #1, followed by Mario Superstar Baseball warming the benches at #2 and Battalion Wars maintaining position at #3. We'd dearly love to know what's going on with the Game Boy Advance charts of late. The top two remain populated with Pokémon Emerald (#1) and Dragon Ball GT: Transformation (#2), while the third game is yet again a from-left-field inclusion. After recent #3 showings from Riviera: The Promised Land and Danny Phantom, this week sees an inexplicable resurgence in popularity for the 10-month old Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories in the third-place spot. Bizarre. Though Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow is still on top of the Nintendo DS charts, the rest of the list continues to shake things up. #2 this week is Zoo Tycoon, THQ's new portable mogul sim, and #3 is Nintendo's own point-and-click adventure Trace Memory. SSX On Tour has vaulted the PSP charts to arrive at #1, with X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse at #2, followed by Virtua Tennis: World Tour at #3.
