Top Gamefly rentals for the week ending 1/5/09

Posted by: Chuck at 1/5/2009 9:32 PM
Gamefly has released their top rentals for last week and the Xbox version of Left 4 Dead tops the list of cross platform titles along with Prince of Persia and Call of Duty World at War coming in second and third respectively.  L4D is also the top title on the Xbox platform and Prince of Persia takes the #1 spot on the PS3 list with Resistance 2 and LittleBitPlanet filling out the top 3 slots.  The Wii side is dominated by Mario Kart Wii, Mario Super Sluggers, and Wii Music which helps to reinforce any pre-conception you might have about the quantity and quality of Wii software.
