This week's GameFly video game rental charts for North America, specifically relating to games rented via the games-by-mail service for the week ending April 18th, show popularity over multiple game formats. The cross-platform chart shows Jade Empire shimmying down the charts as quickly as it arrived, going from a number-one debut down to number nine - possibly due to stock shortages of the popular, lengthy RPG? In its absence, the Xbox port of Doom 3 returned to the top position, followed by Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict on Xbox and Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition. Once again, the top three slots on the Xbox-specific chart mirrored the general chart: Doom 3 at #1, Unreal Championship 2 at #2, and Midnight Club 3 at #3. God of War once again conquers the PS2-specific chart, with Midnight Club 3 and the finally released Dead to Rights II: Hell to Pay in second and third. Not much has changed on Nintendo's three platforms since last week: Resident Evil 4 still leads Star Fox Assault and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door on GameCube, while Mario Party Advance, Legend of Zelda: the Minish Cap, and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories kept up the top three positions on Game Boy Advance. New to the DS charts behind Wario Ware Touched! is tricksy puzzle game Polarium at number 2, followed by Yoshi Touch & Go. Finally, over on the PSP, Metal Gear Acid snuck up from behind to claim the top spot, and SCEA's first-party baseball game MLB made a surprise showing at #2. Namco's difficult-to-source Ridge Racers rounds out the pack at #3.
