This week's top rental charts from U.S. game rental company GameFly, representing the most requested games for the week ending April 27, highlight both to-be-released and already released games in a unique demand-specific chart. GameFly subscribers continued to show their eagerness for Activision's upcoming release of Spider-Man 3, debuting this week for all platforms. The movie tie-in accounted for the top two requests across all platforms for the week, followed by Electronic Arts' upcoming Xbox 360 port of Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars.
