360 hits 700K down under, Microsoft aiming for a million

Microsoft announced that the Xbox 360 has sold 700,000 in the land of g'days and kiwis, with the green eye of the console fixing its gaze on a million sales by Christmas. According to Gamespot, the company's manager for Australia and New Zealand labeled the console as the fastest growing in the region -- not dissimilar to statements made by US execs about their own region.

The company didn't hint at any price or console changes for the Xbox 360 in the region. Execs are "confident" that they'll reach the million goal with the "console's current price point."
