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 November 28th, show popularity over multiple game formats. Despite having a necessarily limited install base, the Xbox 360 claims its first #1 spot on the cross-platform rental chart this week, as Perfect Dark Zero debuts at the top of the list. EA's new racer Need for Speed: Most Wanted, also released last week, pulls up to #2, and Star Wars Battlefront II, by now a veteran of these charts, hangs on for another week at #3. Need for Speed fares better on the PS2-specific rental chart, where it claims the gold at #1. Last week's champion, WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw, surrenders the belt to slip down to #2, and Activision's Gun returns to the top three in the third-place slot. Positive word-of-mouth, incidentally, has propelled Shadow of the Colossus back up the charts to #4; a David and Goliath reference seems appropriate, given the game. Already tired of last week's Half-Life 2, the Xbox crowd has returned to Star Wars Battlefront II, which takes up the #1 mantle again this week. Need for Speed: Most Wanted is #2, and Gun moseys into town in third. On Xbox 360, Perfect Dark Zero naturally repeats its #1 performance, with Microsoft also taking the second-place position with Bizarre Creations' Project Gotham Racing 3. Third place is Quake 4, indicating that for now at least, the 360 inherits the Xbox audience's penchant for first-person shooters. Things are mostly unchanged on Nintendo systems this week. The same three games head up the GameCube chart, just in a different order: Mario Party 7 at #1, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance at #2, and Shadow the Hedgehog at #3. On Game Boy Advance, Pokémon Emerald is back at #1, edging out Donkey Kong Country 3 at #2 and new face The Sims 2 in third. Mario Kart DS, well-protected with a Red Shell shield, is still tops on the Nintendo DS list, though the race is on now that Sega's speedster has debuted on the platform with Sonic Rush. Third on the docket is Capcom's Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, tenaciously extending its case. Finally, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is back in the hot seat at #1 on the PSP charts, sending its challenger SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs: Fireteam Bravo back to basic at #3. #2 is the also lengthily-titled Need for Speed: Most Wanted: 5-1-0.
