The game will ship in November for the Wii as well. The second most requested game for the week was last week's top requested title, Eidos' multiplatform Just Cause. The top three titles on the all platform chart for the week were rounded out by Vivendi's recently shipped Scarface: The World Is Yours.

Looking to the Xbox 360, while the aforementioned Splinter Cell: Double Agent and Just Cause topped requests for the platform, it was Activision's upcoming action RPG Marvel: Ultimate Alliance that rounded out the chart. On the original Xbox, Scarface was the most requested title, followed by Take-Two's Family Guy and Eidos' Just Cause.

Scarface and Family Guy were also popular titles for the PlayStation 2 as well, as these also ranked as the top two requests for the the platform. Take-Two and Rockstar's upcoming controversial title Bully rounded out the top three PlayStation 2 requests for the week.

Vivendi's Scarface: Money. Power. Respect. took in the most requests for the PSP for the week, while Activision's upcoming GUN Showdown ranked second on the chart. Sony's Gangs of London, which last week served as the most requested title for the PSP, fell two spots on the chart to become the third most requested PSP title for the week.
