This week's top rental charts from U.S. game rental company GameFly, representing the most requested games for the week ending February 2, highlight both to-be-released and already released games in a unique demand-specific chart.

And, after weeks on top of the cross platform chart, Capcom's Lost Planet for Xbox 360 was forced to settle for the second place position for the week, as Microsoft's upcoming Xbox 360 sandbox action game Crackdown proved to be the most popular all-formats title, ahead of its February 20 release.

Further down the charts, Eidos' World War II aerial action game Battlestations: Midway rounded out the top three requests on the all platform chart for the week, while this same trio topped the Xbox 360-specific chart as well.

Wii requests were again dominated by Nintendo's recently released Wario Ware: Smooth Moves, while Sega's upcoming Sonic and the Secret Rings and Electronic Arts' Wii-enabled extreme sports sequel SSX Blur took the following two spots on the chart. Sonic the Hedgehog again proved to be the most popular PlayStation 3 title for the week, beating out Sega's own Virtua Fighter 5 and Take Two's hotly anticipated sequel Grand Theft Auto IV, which took second and third place respectively.

PlayStation 2 requests were unsurprisingly headlined by Sony's God of War II, while the company's recently released action RPG Rogue Galaxy took the second place position on the chart. Take-Two's sandbox game Bully continued to cling to the chart's top spots by taking third for the week. Looking to the Xbox, Family Guy was the top requested game for that platform, followed by Vivendi's Scarface: The World Is Yours and Activision's Call of Duty 3.

GameCube requests remained unchanged from last week, with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess taking top honors, followed by Mario Party 7 and Mario Kart: Double Dash. Likewise, Game Boy Advance requests remained static as well, with Square Enix's Final Fantasy VI Advance taking the top spot, followed by Final Fantasy V Advance and Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap.

This week's release of Diddy Kong Racing Proved to be the most popular title for the Nintendo DS, knocking last week's top title, Hotel Dusk, into the second position, followed by Capcom's courtroom adventure Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All.

Finally, switching to the PSP, Sony's action adventure Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters was again the most requested title for the handheld, followed by Konami's ever popular Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops and LucasArts' strategy title Thrillville.
