Media-Create reported Friday that Namco Bandai's PSP adventure game God Eater sold 295,000 units for the week, debuting at number one. The game supports local four-player co-op, and is developed by Ape Escape Academy developer Shift.

Aside from God Eater, two other new games broke into the top ten this week: Square Enix's PlayStation 3 game Star Ocean: The Last Hope -- International and the PSP game Pop'n Music Portable from Dance Dance Revolution Konami.

Dropping out of the top 10 from last week were Namco's Ar tonelico III: Sekai Shuuen no Hikigane wa Shoujo no Uta ga Hajiku for PS3, Sega's Resonance of Fate for Xbox 360 and Valkyria Chronicles 2 for PSP, and Sony's MAG for PS3.
