Microsoft are pretty happy with how the Xbox 360 is doing in Australia:
Microsoft announced today that in just the seven months since launch, Xbox 360 has sold over 100,000 consoles in Australia, making it the fastest selling videogame console [excluding handhelds] in Australian history to reach that mark.

In addition to the hardware success story, Xbox 360 software has also set a new sales record in Australia with a remarkable 400,000 games sold in the seven months since launch.
The Xbox 360, like its predecessor, seems to enjoy quite a bit of success down under.

Sony are probably going to have a bit of a battle ahead of them - the PlayStation 3 will be going up against the well-entrenched Xbox 360. The delayed release here combined with the high cost are probably big stumbling blocks.

Sony's fiercly anti-competitive stance - seen just recently as popular online gaming retailer Lik-Sang was forced to shut down - plus the whole rootkit debacle aren't doing them any favours in the eyes of the hardcore, but it's probably safe to say that these events will sneak past the mass market unnoticed (unfortunately).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I get the impression that the Xbox and the 360 have both done comparitively better here in Australia versus worldwide sales; any thoughts as to why?
