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.
