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 May 30th, show popularity over multiple game formats.
Star Wars mania continues, as tie-in games to the new movie show up in the top three results for four of the seven charts. In the general chart, the Revenge of the Sith
game is still #1, with God of War
holding at #2, and Area 51
returning to the #3 position.
Star Wars Episode III
is also remaining strong at #1 on the Xbox chart. Area 51
creeps up from behind to abduct the #2 slot, and Doom 3
also sees a resurgence on its way back to #3. On the PS2, though, God of War
overthrows Star Wars
to reclaim #1, with the Episode III
game slipping to second place. Area 51
stays in at third from last week.
As ever, the GameCube chart is populated mostly by platform-specific games, rather than the multiplatform releases seen elsewhere. Resident Evil 4
continues its long streak at #1, followed by Star Fox Assault
at #2, and Donkey Konga 2
keeping time at #3.
On the Game Boy Advance, the release of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
has (however temporarily) dethroned Pokémon Emerald
from its #1 perch. The critter-collecting game bides its time at #2, waiting to return, while Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
holds steady at #3. Star Wars Episode III
continues to rule the galaxy at #1 on the DS charts, with Pac-Pix
in #2 and Need for Speed Underground 2
in third place, switching positions from last week.
The mercurial (thought not in the Archer MacLean sense) PSP charts seem to be stabilizing a bit; MVP Baseball
is safe at home for another week at #1, and Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee
has come back up to #2. Metal Gear Ac!d
reinfiltrates the top three at #3, finishing out the week.
