AUS: Xbox 360 hits milestone

The Xbox 360 has now sold over 1m units in Australia and New Zealand, Microsoft has confirmed.

Reaching the one million console milestone is a great achievement and one that puts us in a great position for the coming year,” acting marketing director of entertainment and devices for Microsoft New Zealand Frazer Scott stated

Since 2006, we’ve taken the lead in the innovation space and driven the growth in online entertainment. Our online community, Xbox Live, is one of the largest online communities in the region with more than 525k subscribers.”

To celebrate the milestone, the platform holder is to auction off a number of celebrity-themed special edition consoles sporting the likenesses of Russell Crowe, Elle MacPherson, Hugh Jackman, Slash, Harry Kewell and, bizarrely, Jamie Oliver.
