Japanese Gamers Hungry For God Eater

Namco Bandai's God Eater for the PSP is off to a good start in Japan, giving 295,000 PlayStation Portable owners another taste of Monster Hunter-like hack and slash action.

God Eater's number one debut pushes last week's software winner, Dragon Quest VI: Maboroshi no Daichi for the Nintendo DS to second place, beating out the PlayStation 3 port of Star Ocean 4. That leaves long-legged bestsellers New Super Mario Bros Wii and Tomodachi Collection settling for lower spots on the chart, but both titles are still selling like the Japanese equivalent of hotcakes.

This week's new debuts, Pop 'n Music Portable and Kunio-kun Nekketsu! Daiundoukai, didn't make much of a stir, but they've got some decent competition. For Media Create's top 30 games for the week of February 1 to 7, read on.

    Any word on an Aus release for this?

    where is PS3 FFXIII? not even in Top 30??

      FF13 is not a good game (for a FF). It's rated around 5 or 6 out of 10. Very big disappointment.
