360 Successfully Launches in Australia

Proving that the Xbox brand is very popular down under, Microsoft released its Xbox 360 console to much fanfare in Australia. Marking the most successful console launch in the region, around 30,000 units of the Xbox 360 were sold, a third of which were purchased at midnight the day of release. This beats out the previous record of PSP’s 27,000 when it launched last September.

In contrast to North America however, Australian gamers picked up an average of 3 games per console, compared with 4 games in the Western hemisphere.
