Following a massive surge for both PSP and PS3 in Japan last week, DS has re-taken the lead.

The releases of Sengoku Basara 3 for PS3 and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd for PSP in the previous week injected the formats with turbo juice, but the effect dropped off this week to hand the overall lead back to DS.

For the record, we have no idea what either of those games are. Japanese people clearly like them, though.

Here’s the lot, showing combined SKUs, for August 2-8:

  1. DS – 43,708
  2. PSP – 31,105
  3. PS3 – 28,630
  4. Wii – 18,238
  5. Xbox 360 – 5,639
  6. PS2 – 1,524
