DS still in pole position in Japanese hardware chart

Namco's PSP title God Eater is software number one, but leaves Nintendo handheld top

The week ending October 31 sees another PSP title topping the Japanese chart, as Namco's Monster Hunter echoing God Eater hits number one, but it's Nintendo's DS which is riding high in the hardware chart.

Konami's PES 2011 jumps straight at number two with its PS3 SKU, on a week which sees its FIFA rival drop out of the top twenty. Last week's number one, the 25th anniversary edition of Super Mario All-Stars, drops to third, just above Pokemon Black and White in fourth.

Nosing into the top ten on its release week is Xbox 360 exclusive Fable III, selling just over 20,000 copies. The 360 itself has dropped to eighth in the hardware table, below a mildly resurgent PSPgo.
