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.
