Xbox 360 Hosts Most-Rented Games of '08

GameDaily has posted the results for the top 10 most frequently rented video games of 2008. In the list, which was compiled by Rentrak, seven of the ten games that were rented the most last year are for the Xbox 360. The remaining three titles are for the Nintendo Wii, leaving the PlayStation 3 entirely absent from the top 10.

It shouldn't come as too much of a shock that Grand Theft Auto IV turned out to be the #1 most rented game of 2008, but there are some interesting results from the data released. The rather underwhelming Army of Two came in at #5 and the year-old Mario Party 8 made the list in the #10 spot.

Here's the complete list of the top 10 rented games of 2008:

1. Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360)

2. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Xbox 360)

3. Halo 3 (Xbox 360)

4. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (Xbox 360)

5. Army of Two (Xbox 360)

6. Mario Kart Wii (Wii)

7. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)

8. Fallout 3 (Xbox 360)

9. Assassin's Creed (Xbox 360)

10. Mario Party 8 (Wii)

There's more in store for Grand Theft Auto IV fans as the highly-anticipated downloadable expansion, The Lost and the Damned, is being released on Xbox Live this February. Get more info on it here.
