Let's outline other Australian console sales:
- The Nintendo Wii is the current record holder, with 32,901 units sold in the first four days. It retails for AU $400 (US $322), equating to approximately AU $13.16 million (US $10.59 million) excluding software and accessory sales.
- Before Wii, Microsoft's Xbox 360 was the champion with 30,421 consoles sold in the first four days. At AU $650 (US $523), that amounts to about AU $19.77 million (US $15.91 million), again excluding software and accessory sales. Microsoft estimated last year that they earned somewhere between AU $30 million and $40 million in total sales.
- Sony did hold the record before Microsoft and Nintendo with the PSP, which at AU $430 (US $346) managed an impressive 27,055 handhelds sold, equating to around AU $11.63 million (US $9.36 million) in hardware sales.
