Movie and video game rental service Redbox has revealed its top video game rentals of 2011, with the Xbox 360 version of Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
taking the top of the chart.
In recent years, Redbox's strategy of placing rental kiosks in high-traffic areas has disrupted traditional brick-and-mortar rental businesses like Blockbuster. Redbox began adding game titles
to its movie rental kiosks this year -- with 27,000 nationwide, the company claims
"67 percent of America is within a five minute drive of a Redbox kiosk."
Redbox kiosks hold PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii titles. The Wii version of Ubisoft's Just Dance 3
featured at number two in the chart, while Dead Island
for Xbox 360 was at number three.
Other notable entries into the chart include the PlayStation 3 version of Modern Warfare 3
at number five, and the Xbox 360 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
at number eight.
Overall, six of the entries into the top ten were Xbox 360 games, while the Wii took three of the spots, and the PlayStation 3 only held one position.
