In news that is guaranteed to bring a smile to the battle-hardened face of Bill Gates once again, Xbox 360 software sales have set a new record for the world's smallest continent you may have come to know as Australia.

Thanks to an insatiable appetite for great titles such as Gears of War, Rainbow Six: Vegas, and Ghost Recon 2, the mighty-box-that-could has amassed over a million sales in 14 months. 

What makes this news remarkable is the fact that this tops all other launches in this territory -- PlayStation 2 and Nintendo DS included. Have we finally found a spot on Earth where the Wii has not been given the key to the city, and had streets (as well as infants) named after it?
