the ps3 is incredible. the 360 has the advantage bcuz all the gamespot critics use it and they all hate the ps3. thats y KZ2 only got a 9.0 instead of a 9.5+.
Capcom's 2D fighter tops GameFly's rental charts on Xbox 360, PS3, as Microsoft's platform scores near-perfect sweep of top 10.
Street Fighter IV is proving to be a hit at retail, with Capcom announcing today that it has shipped 2 million units to retailers across the globe. The 2D fighter is making a name for itself on the rental charts, as well. The well-rated Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions of Street Fighter IV took the top two slots in GameFly's weekly recap of its US game-loaning activity for the week of February 17-23.
Microsoft's Xbox 360 scored a clean slip in rental activity for the remainder of GameFly's weekly chart. The Valve-published, EA-distributed Left 4 Dead placed third, having scored fourth in The NPD Group's monthly sales chart for January. The survival horror shooter was followed by a number of other top sellers, with Call of Duty: World at War, Gears of War 2, Fallout 3, Fable II, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed falling in at respective fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth slots.
Debuting at second on this week's PC charts, the Xbox 360 edition of F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin was the ninth most-rented title last week. Ubisoft's Prince of Persia took the final position in GameFly's top 10 chart.

Resident Evil 5 would to same the background between XBOX 360 and PS3? let see which is the best RE 5 game.
This proves achievement is the best feature Microsoft ever created. By the way I have all these games. "Achievement Unlocked: SF4 Unbeatable Fist"
Hmmm I never rent. Probably cos I'm such a completionist - I like hammering out all achievements and secrets and stuff like that for every game I play. Having just been burned in both the last games I bought though (VERY disappointed with both FarCry 2 and Fable 2), maybe I'm going to start having to rent. One thing is for certain - I can't trust Gamespot's reviews - neither of those games deserved near 8.5/10.
I won't be surprised if SFIV will be 2009's game of the year. It's far too early to make a guess but IF that is the case, then it's not surprising.
...but if you look at the sales charts, it's all Wii and 360, no PS3 in sight. Sony's dying. Blame it on Blu-Ray, a bad media choice. Wii Fit (Wii) 777K Wii Play w/ Remote (Wii) 415K Mario Kart (Wii) 292K Left 4 Dead (360) 243K Call Of Duty: World At War (360) 533K Skate 2 (360) 199K Guitar Hero World Tour (Wii) 155K New Super Mario Bros (DS) 135K Mario Kart (DS) 132K Lord Of The Rings: Conquest (360) 113K
Haha, and not a single Wii game? Do Wii owners even know they can rent games? Do they even know their are games other than Wii Sports?! But I digress... I guess it makes sense that the only PS3 game in the charts is SFIV, considering almost all of those games have been released on both systems but 360 has a larger userbase.
to everyone saying 360 people are poor... howabout trying gamefly first... oh wait u need a credit card and prolly dont have one.
all games are for 360...360 rules and will do forevere...and SF IV is just to awesome that its 2 games are on the top :D
Either 360 is successful, or Wii and PS3 owners just buy their games. And don't go all fanboy on me, I have all three consoles. Thank God for brothers. I haven't rented a game in years. I think I should again in case I make any accidental purchases. I think the last game I rented was for Gamecube or something.
All this proves is - most Xbox 360 owners are poor and therefore cant afford to actually buy games, oh dear!
Damn. My rental store isnt renting Street Fighter IV out but they're selling it for only 40euros so SCORE!!
Wow look at that, the 360 dominating the rental charts. lol, amazing how the Wii has a bigger install base and can't top the charts hands down, and the PS3...welll ,what's there to say about that! Anyways, the 360 is a monster and will actually be the victor this gen with the Wii by it's side.
I'm in MA, and all our rental stores have horrible selections. Just think: five copys of "The Bible Game." One copy of the newly released "Dragon Quest 8." It's that bad. Even if they couldn't get more than one copy of the latest, highly anticipated game, the "bible game." Really now? Do they think it's going to be THAT popular?
So all five copies of Street Fighter IV that gamefly got were rented on the first day? Funny how none of those ever find thier way to my house.... They could also easily factor Blockbuster and other rental chains into these charts, blockbuster is the #1 quantity renter of games i have heard....
I still think they should balance Gamefly's data with some of other rental outlets.... Working at one myself, I know that SFIV and Left 4 Dead definitely aren't even in the top 20 because none of us really got that many copies of it! lol.
I've always rented games since I've had to send my system off twice... I don't blame other people for doing the same.
huh? are they putting this up because X360 dominated the rental charts? so much for maintaining console neutrality, who gives a damn anyway
WOW, I don't know I should be happy that all Xbox360 tops Gamefly rental or I should be concerned that how many Xbox360 gamers actually buy games. I for one haven't buy many games since I switch to Gamefly.
weird, can someone explain me, what does this article means?, i don't know why the post rental charts, it's because of the crisis or what?
Gamefly's US rental charts have been available from Gamespot for at least 2 years... it's just that they rarely make a news story out of it. If you click on the news link from the homepage ( http://www.gamespot.com/news/index.html ) and go to the bottom there are the rental charts... as well as US Console Sales (BestBuy.com) and US PC Sales (NPD), UK Sales (Chart Track) and Japan Sales (Media Create). 360 has dominated this chart since I believe its inception... in fact twice it has held every spot in the top 10. I think it has to do with a combination of things... the 360 has a relatively high installed base, "hardcore" gamers more likely to have Gamefly accounts and play more games than other gamers (think attachment rate) and then there's the people that rent for the achievements.
Glad to see Street Fighter 4 pwning the other competition, lol. I wouldn't be suprised if it continues to be No.1 for a while longer.
360 owners rent because their console can RROD in any minute. There goes the minuses from 360 fanboys.
