Japanese Software: God Eater Holds Onto Top Slot

Namco Bandai's PSP adventure game God Eater has kept its weekly Japanese sales charts top slot with 110,000 units sold, with Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie, staying at number two.
Namco Bandai's PlayStation Portable adventure game God Eater topped the weekly Japanese sales charts for second week running, with Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie holding its second-place slot. Media-Create reported Friday that, for the week that ended February 14, Namco Bandai's Shift-developed PSP adventure game God Eater sold 110,000 units for the week -- fewer than half the number it sold last week, but still enough to give it a comfortable lead over the second-place game. This week, Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie sold 80,000 units, also just under half of last week's total, and down from a phenomenal 906,000 units sold two weeks ago. A healthy four titles broke into the top ten this week: Konami's The Prince of Tennis: Motto Gakuensai no Oujisama - More Sweet Edition and Quiz Magic Academy DS: Futatsu no Jikku Koku, both for Nintendo DS; Nintendo's Sandlot-developed Zangeki no REGINLEIV for Wii; and, most surprisingly, the Spike-published Sacred 2 for PlayStation 3, developed by German studio Ascaron. The game's Xbox 360 version made the list a few spaces lower at number 14. Below are Media Create's Japanese sales charts for the week ended February 14:
