Only kangaroos and koala bears don't play on Nintendo's consoles say the latest sales figures from Australia. The DS console the 1 million units milestone in the country, while the Wii also set a good record of its own.

The officials didn't act to surprised to hear the news, especially since the Wii had already equaled the record set by Xbox 360.
But speaking of figures alone, the DS sold 509,869 units during the past year, with December being the best month - 133,691 units. The Wii's statistics for December show only 73,318 units, but let's not forget we are talking about the same console constantly plagued by shortages issues.
All in all, Nintendo's consoles sit comfortably on the first two spots in the top, a performance that gets more meaning if one should recall that, before the release of these two, Australia was anything but an important market for Nintendo.
