This week's top rental charts from major online video game rental company GameFly, representing rentals for the week ending April 17, show significant favor among subscribers for gorgeous female archaeologists, big machine guns, and Disney cartoon characters. Sweeping the charts this week in the cross-platform category is the Crystal Dynamics developed and Eidos-published Tomb Raider: Legend, available for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, Xbox 360 and PC. Following closely behind is EA's first-person shooter Battlefield 2: Modern Combat and Take-Two's Major League Baseball 2K6. This cross-platform top three exactly mirrors the specific top ten Xbox 360 rentals, showing significant representation from Microsoft's powerhouse console in the overall figures. In fact, eight of the top ten cross-platform games, including Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII, The Outfit, Far Cry Instincts: Predator and Fight Night: Round 3 are either exclusive to the Xbox 360, or represent its most popular SKU. Rounding out the cross-platform list is Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts II for the PlayStation 2 at the number four spot, and the cross-platform The Godfather - available on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox - hanging on at number eight. Doing some simple math reveals that only two Xbox 360 titles remain on its specific top ten. These two are The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Top Spin 2, respectively. It may be number eight overall, but on the Xbox-specific top ten, The Godfather retains its number one spot, with another EA title - the first-person shooter Black - trailing behind at number two. Next is the aforementioned Tomb Raider: Legend, followed by yet another EA game, Fight Night: Round 3 at number four. Ubisoft's Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones comes in at number five, with Star Wars: Battlefront II, Half-Life 2, Major League Baseball 2K6, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter and Call of Duty 2: Big Red One rounding off the list. Unsurprisingly, Kingdom Hearts II tops off the PlayStation 2 charts, followed closely by Tomb Raider: Legend, The Godfather, Black, Tourist Trophy: The Real Riding Simulator, Shadow of the Colossus, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, Major League Baseball 2K6, Fight Night: Round 3 and Resident Evil 4. And, with a lack of major new releases, Super Mario Strikers continues to top the Gamecube top ten, followed by fighting game Naruto: Clash of the Ninja and Natsume's Harvest Moon: Magical Melody at numbers two and three, respectively. The only new Gamecube title released for the week, the war strategy/sim/pinball game Odama, premieres at number four. The top Game Boy Advance rentals mirror the previous charts, with Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Naruto: Ninja Council on top, followed by two Yu-Gi-Oh! titles - Ultimate Masters 2006 and GX Duel Academy - at numbers three and four. The Nintendo DS top three also practically mirrors that of last week, consisting of Metroid Prime: Hunters, Super Princess Peach and Tetris DS, respectively. In the previous week, the roles of Super Princess Peach and Tetris DS were switched. And finally, on the PSP, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories remains on top, followed again by Daxter at number two. Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror climbs up to number three, mysteriously knocking last week's third most-rented PSP title - Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code - off of the top ten completely.
