Electronic Arts' upcoming release of Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II for the Xbox 360 was the fourth most requested title for the week, followed by Capcom's upcoming Xbox 360 release, Dead Rising, which has players fending off a zombie attack at a shopping mall. NCAA Football 07, which ships for the Xbox 360, as well as the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PSP on July 18, was the sixth most popular title for the week.
