GameFlirt Most Wanted chart for March
GameFlirt are one of the UK's top games rental companies, and you won't find this information anywhere else - not even at the GameFlirt website.
Like the often seen Netflix charts for US movie titles, it's a great indicator of what's hot in the PS3 community.
This month sees the biggest shift of the year so far. Call of Duty 4 has dropped out of the chart altogether. It would seem that our favourite game of the moment is so impressive, people have stopped renting it and have bought their own copy instead. That means for a second month running, Assassin's Creed takes the number one slot.
In fact, Assassin's Creed is the only title to make it on to this month's chart. Other new entries include Devil May Cry, Ridge Racer 7, Oblivion and Army of Two. Everything there makes sense to us except for Ridge Racer 7 arriving in third place! We reckon all the people who picked up a PS3 over Christmas have just found out about game rentals and are trying some old school racing...
Metal Gear Solid 4 remains the number one pre-rent title, of course! Devil May Cry 4, UT III and Blacksite has moved out of the pre-rent chart since their release, so Haze is joined by Monster Madness and Mercenaries 2. The difference this month is the pre-rent list is a top four instead of a top five, as March is always one of those transition months on the gaming calendar whilst new titles get ramped up for the Easter break.
Here are the charts in full.
