The Xbox 360 has become the fastest-selling console in Australia, shifting over 100,000 units since its release in March this year.

The previous record was held by Sony, with the PlayStation 2 selling 78,000 units during its first seven months on sale.

"Our figures show that Xbox 360 has been the fastest ever console to sell 100,000 units in Australia, reaching that mark in just seven months," said Daniel Morse, senior account manager at GfK Australia.

With software sales amounting to 400,000 according to GfK, the 360 continues its strong performance in the region, where it also became the fastest-selling console at launch, selling over 30,000 units in just four days.
