GameFly: Kingdom Under Fire, Burnout Knock Down Holiday Faves

This week's top rental charts from U.S. game rental company GameFly, representing the most requested games for the week ending January 14th, finally show significant position losses for the holiday season's iron-clad top five, with Kingdom Under Fire:
This week's top rental charts from U.S. game rental company GameFly, representing the most requested games for the week ending January 14th, highlight both to-be-released and already released games in a unique demand-specific chart. Kingdom Under Fire: Circle Of Doom remains at number one for its third week in a row. After remaining solid all through the holiday season with a five-week stint at number one and three weeks at number two, Assassin's Creed finally takes a stumble, slipping all the way to fifth position. Call of Duty 4, accustomed to the third position, slips one spot to fourth this week, and Mass Effect also takes a fall all the way out of contention after placing in the fourth position last week. It's Burnout Paradise and Devil May Cry 4's turn at the second and third spots this week, and while Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Unreal Tournament III had battled back and forth for the fifth position, both tumble out of contention: UE3's in the tenth spot, and Uncharted leaves the top ten entirely -- however, the PS3 SKUs of both titles still make top five on the individual format charts. The individual rental charts for Xbox 360 are once again a mirror of the all-platform top 5, showing that these top Xbox 360 titles are the most in-demand rentals overall.
