G’day mates! Australia loves Wii too

Nintendo could probably start selling snow to an Eskimo anytime now and still make a healthy profit, because it seems wherever the Wii is launched, a sell out and sales records are sure to follow.

In Australia, reports GameIndustry.biz, the Wii sold 32,901 units at launch, surpassing the Xbox 360 and PSP as the fastest selling console of all time.

There’s no data on which games sold well, but the software attach rate for Wii stood at 1.5 units per console. Wii Sports was bundled with the console and was not included in that figure. Wii, it’s Australian for fun.
