Wii breaks Australian record

100,000 sold since launch.

The Wii has sold over 100,000 units in Australia, with Nintendo claiming it has become the fast-selling console in the region.

The console costs AUD 399.95 (EUR 252 / GBP 169) and comes with a copy of Wii Sports, a title that Nintendo believes continues to attract non-traditional gamers to the machine.

"We are pleased that Wii has achieved this benchmark, but we are ecstatic that it attained this whilst also reaching new audiences and expanding the scope of our entire industry," commented Rose Lappin, director of sales and marketing for Nintendo.

"We promised that we would bring gaming to the masses. I think this is proof that we are heading in the right direction.

"Wii Sports is still performing very well as a primary vehicle to encourage non-gamers towards trying out the Wii experience," added Lappin.
