GameFly Charts Topped By Crackdown, Homecourt, GoW II

This week's top rental charts from U.S. game rental company GameFly, representing the most requested games for the week ending February 16, again see Real Time Worlds' Xbox 360 sandbox action game Crackdown topping rental requests, followed by EA's
This week's top rental charts from U.S. game rental company GameFly, representing the most requested games for the week ending February 16, highlight both to-be-released and already released games in a unique demand-specific chart. Once again, Microsoft's Xbox 360 sandbox action game Crackdown holds on to the top spot on the all platform chart, with Electronic Arts' arcade style NBA Street Homecourt for the Xbox 360 taking the second place position. Sony's upcoming PlayStation 2 swan song God of War II ranked as the third most requested title across all platforms, preventing requests for titles for Microsoft's console from sweeping the chart as in recent weeks. While both Crackdown and NBA Street Homecourt took the top two requests for Xbox 360 releases for the week, the pair were followed by Capcom's snowy action title Lost Planet. PlayStation 3 requests were topped by Sega's recently shipped Virtua Fighter 5, while Take Two's Major League Baseball 2K7 and Sony's Formula 1 filled out the remaining two positions for the console. Wii requests were headlined by Sega's upcoming Sonic and the Secret Rings, followed by Electronic Arts' Wii exclusive SSX Blur. Nintendo's own Wario Ware: Smooth Moves rounded out the top three Wii requests for the week. Looking to the previous console generation, Sony's God of War II was again the top requested PlayStation 2 title for the week, followed by Take Two's movie and comic book adaptation Ghost Rider, and the Level 5 developed action RPG Rogue Galaxy. Xbox requests were topped by Dreamcatcher's first-person shooter Painkiller: Hell Wars. Vivendi's Scarface: The World Is Yours was the second most requested Xbox release for the week, followed by Electronic Arts' Need for Speed: Carbon. GameCube requests for the week were once again dominated by The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, followed by Mario Party 7 and D3P's anime inspired fighting game Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2. Requests for the Game Boy Advance were again topped by Final Fantasy VI Advance, with Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap and Naruto: Ninja Council 2 rounding out the top three requests for the aging handheld. The recently released Diddy Kong Racing DS was the most requested title for the Nintendo DS, with Nintendo's Wario: Master of Disguise and Hotel Dusk taking the second and third positions respectively. Finally, PSP requests were topped by Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters, followed by a pair of movie inspired releases from Take Two: Ghost Rider and The Warriors.
