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 March 28th, show popularity over multiple game formats.
In the all-formats chart, Sony's PlayStation 2 action adventure title God Of War
heads straight in at number one, on the back of overwhelmingly positive reviews. The Free Radical-created multi-format FPS TimeSplitters: Future Perfect
turned out second, and Xbox-specific first-person shooter Star Wars: Republic Commando
hung around at number 3.
The PlayStation 2 specific chart is, naturally enough, headed up by God of War
, with Gearbox/Ubisoft's WWII title Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30
next up, and Capcom's PS2-exclusive return to form Devil May Cry 3
third. As for the Xbox, it's simply TimeSplitters: Future Perfect
, followed by Star Wars: Republic Commando
, and then Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30
Although the top spots on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox charts are mainly made up of the top all-format games, Nintendo's GameCube has a whole different roster of largely GC-exclusive titles, with current exclusive Resident Evil 4
dominating in first place, closely followed by Star Fox Assault
and the bongo-tastic Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat
As for the portable charts, the PSP sees the most popularity from vehicle combat game Twisted Metal: Head On
, with, interestingly enough, card combat game Metal Gear Acid
next, closely followed by Namco's excellent Ridge Racer
. As for the Nintendo DS, Yoshi Touch & Go
heads up the most-rented for the week, with Wario Ware: Touched!
and Pokemon Dash
hot on its tail, first-party titles to the fore.
