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 August 29th, show popularity over multiple game formats. Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction has ultimately destroyed the overall rental charts this week; the popular license and overall positive reviews have made it a hit on nearly all platforms, and it debuts at #1 on the charts. Slipping to #2 from last week but maintaining a fairly high position is Darkwatch, while Madden NFL 06 remains in third place. The Xbox-only charts are a mere mirror of the overall rankings: Incredible Hulk, Darkwatch, and then Madden. The PS2 charts are also rather similar, with Incredible Hulk leading the charge and Darkwatch lurking in the shadows at #2. In third place on the PS2 charts, however, is God of War rather than Madden. The only main platform where Incredible Hulk didn't hit #1 straightaway is, naturally, the GameCube. Geist is still on top there, while last week's other game release, Sonic Gems Collection, shows up at #2. Hulk eventually gets around to charting down at the #3 spot. The Game Boy Advance chart is a little more static, with Dragon Ball GT: Transformation still reigning over Pokémon Emerald and Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap. Some new faces show themselves on both of the newer handhelds: Death Jr. remains #1 on the PSP chart from last week, and Namco Museum Battle Collection debuts at #2. Coded Arms rounds out the top of the PSP charts at #3. On the Nintendo DS, puppy times are here again -- Nintendogs manages to take both of the top two slots, as well as #4. The top breed is Dachshund and Friends, while Lab and Friends is slightly less well loved at #2. Stinky ol' Chihuahuas failed to overcome #3's Advance Wars for an all-Nintendogs hat trick.
