It isn't often that Microsoft's Xbox 360 is ousted from the top of GameFly's weekly console and portable rental charts. Of course, it also isn't often that an exclusive of Killzone 2's caliber is released. Last week, Guerrilla Games' critically lauded PlayStation 3-only sci-fi shooter debuted to avid rental enthusiasm, according to GameFly's rental activity for the week of February 24-March 2.
However, similar to the prior week's Street Fighter IV for the PS3 anomaly, the remainder of the chart belonged to the Xbox 360. Console exclusives Left 4 Dead, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, and Gears of War 2 picked up the second, third, and fifth slots in GameFly's chart, and Call of Duty: World at War placed fourth.
After its debut at number one a week prior, Street Fighter IV slipped to eighth, having been surpassed by F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin in sixth and Fallout 3 in seventh. Prince of Persia and Fable II rounded out the week's rental activity, slipping into the ninth and tenth slots, respectively.
