This week's top rental charts from U.S. game rental company GameFly, representing the most requested games for the week ending July 7, highlights the popularity surrounding video game titles that have been already released, as well as those that are yet to debut.
The all platform chart was once again dominated by titles for the Xbox 360, with Take-Two and Human Head's upcoming Xbox 360 first-person shooter Prey
again taking the top spot as the most requested title across all console platforms for the week. Sega and From Software's Chromehounds
was the second most requested title for the week, followed by Electronic Arts' recently released Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II
. (Although two of these games have PC SKUs, GameFly does not rent PC titles.) Thus, obviously, the same three titles ranked as the most popular Xbox 360 titles for the week.

ranked as the most popular title for the platform, followed by Eidos' stealth action title Hitman: Blood Money
