Wii sells 2M in Australia, 105K in NZ

Nintendo has announced that 2 million Wii consoles have sold in Australia since it launched 47 months ago, compared with 105,000 units in New Zealand over the same period. 

In Australia, this means that Nintendo has sold roughly one Wii for every 10 people, whereas in New Zealand the company has sold one Wii for every 38 people. This highlights the proportional difference in the console's popularity between here and across the ditch, with approximately 21 million people in Australia and 4 million in New Zealand.

The Australian milestone means that the Wii has now outperformed the Nintendo DS as the fastest-selling console in Australia, which sold the same number of units in 52 months.
