Nintendo crowned Australia's console king

Huge mainstream demand for video games over Christmas and a bumper year for Nintendo caused total games industry sales in 2007 to swell by almost 50 per cent over the previous year.

GfK rankings obtained by this site show the Nintendo DS handheld dominated over the holiday period, followed by the Wii and the Playstation 2, which were neck-and-neck. The final three places were filled by the PS3, Xbox 360 and the Playstation Portable (PSP), but it is understood the trio were within a few thousands units of each other.

The story is too old to be commented.

I guess i should not be surprised to see the box fall to the lower end of the spectrum. In another 6 months it will probably have gangrene and fall off 2 months after that.

Considering the amount of money MS has thrown at the Australian market this is an extremely poor result. They had everything going for them last year, a 1 year head start, good software and a good price point and they still find themselves at the bottom of the barrel.

This doesnt bode well for 08 when Sony is set to take the gloves off.
