1 million 360′s sold in Australia and New Zealand

Tuesday, 20th April 2010 13:59 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Microsoft’s pushed through the 1 million mark with Xbox 360 in Australasia. Woo.

The company said today it’s giving away some signed 360s. Want a videogames console signed by Russel Crowe? Microsoft can make this dream real.

To celebrate the sale of 1 million Xbox 360 consoles across Australia and New Zealand, we’re auctioning off one-of-a-kind consoles to raise funds for the David Peachey Foundation. A-list celebrities from the TV, sports, music, radio and fashion have lent their support for this great cause. Don’t be shy and bid for your favourite signed console as you will be helping to promote the development of the indigenous youth of Australia.

Bid away. Provided you live on the other side of the world, obviously.

    Thats really strange :)

    I’d take a Kevin coster xbox over a Russel Crowe xbox any day

    if you could have a demented picture of a celebrity on the side of your xbox who would it be?

    I’d have Pete Postlethwaite

    That seems remarkably high for a market with a combined population of 26 million.

    consoles are very overpriced there, let alone the software.

    overpriced software? heh, a lot of australian buying pirated 360 games in my country( I saw it by myself, its sold only for US$ 3). Meanwhile, we started to buy original games knowing how important it is to support any developer out there.

    MS are almost giving away the 360 here in Oz at the moment so its no wonder.
    They are running a promo through EB games and Game, an Elite with 5 games including Forza 3 and Halo ODST for $399 AUD. ( the GBP – AUD exchange rate is fucked at the moment so it seems expensive converted to pounds today but it is actually very cheap! )

    bpcgos – well, pirated 360 games are being sold in other countries as well.

    anyway, that’s what I heard from a couple of guys living there, said it’s way overpriced compared to ie EU.
