North American video game rental service GameFly, which is allowing its members to request Xbox 360 games ahead of the console's November 22 release date, has released its list of the most-requested Xbox 360 titles, giving an interesting insight into the games that are of most immediate appeal ahead of the launch. Topping the chart is Rare and Microsoft's Perfect Dark Zero, but Activision's Call Of Duty 2, which was not perhaps initially one of the most high-profile of the launch window titles, has shot up into second place. Also placing highly are titles such as Quake 4 and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, though it is appears that the latter has slipped into 2006. The full GameFly most-requested chart for Xbox 360 titles is as follows: 1. Perfect Dark Zero, Microsoft 2. Call of Duty 2, Activision 3. Quake 4, Activision 4. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Take 2 5. Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Electronic Arts 6. Dead or Alive 4, Tecmo 7. Gun, Activision 8. Madden NFL 06, Electronic Arts 9. Project Gotham Racing 3, Microsoft 10. Kameo: Elements of Power, Microsoft GameFly has indicated that it will start updating its regular charts with Xbox 360 rental information as soon as the console launches, giving further intriguing data as to what consumers might find popular.
