Console Wars
2008 Australian Console Sales Figures
By Luke Plunkett, 6:30 AM on Fri Feb 6 2009, 2,633 views

Let's take a moment to visit a peripheral theatre in the great global tussle for console supremacy, and see how each of the three machines is faring in the Australian market.

Sony Computer Entertainment sent us their 2008 sales numbers earlier in the week, to go along with those from Microsoft and Nintendo, who it must be noted were far more punctual. But late is better than never, so without further ado, here's how the three home consoles (and two handhelds) stacked up last year in the antipodes.


Nintendo Wii - 685,000
Xbox 360 - 237,000
PlayStation 3 - 213,000

Clear win for the Wii, then. As for the other two, it should be noted in fairness that the PS3 numbers include an estimated 70,000 consoles that weren't bought, and were instead given away as free gifts for purchasers of certain models of Sony Bravia televisions.


Nintendo DS - 800,000
PlayStation Portable - ??

The DS wins this one by default, as Sony elected not to disclose the number of PSPs they sold in Australia for the year. Which, when you consider they did disclose the number of PS3s, has us suspecting the handheld isn't quite faring as well down under as it is elsewhere.
