Australia, December 3, 2006 - Thanks to the Herald Sun, we now know to what extent Aussies are embracing Nintendo's next console. The Wii has so far amassed 30,000 preorders, making it one of the most successful preorder campaigns for a console in Australian history.

Up to this point, the Xbox 360 was the fastest selling console in Australia, shifting 30,000 units in four days. With that same number already preordered, we expect the Wii will easily break that record.

After shifting more than 600,000 consoles and 400,000 copies of Zelda since launch in the US and reports of sell-out conditions in Japan, Nintendo must be delighted with the level at which people are embracing Wii.
