Double crikey! Aussies also fell madly in love with the DS

Apr 05 // Robert Summa    @summaaftershow

We neglected to tell you, but Dtoid is going full Aussie now, so excuse us with all the sudden news related to Australia. After just seeing how well the PlayStation 3 has done, take a look at what Nintendo's little handheld that could is doing down under:

Yes, it's official, over 500,000 Nintendo DS handhelds have been sold in Australia! That's a huge number for a system that's been available for just over two years, and further underlines how effectively Nintendo's gamble on innovative hardware and an expansive software range is paying off.

... Telstra, today announced that Aussie players now have access to over 1,000 Telstra Wireless Hotspots to feed their DS Wi-Fi habit.

What's with the video game boom over there? Don't they have better things to do like kill crocs and such? Nex, we demand a full investigation.
