Arguably, the most successful smartphone game ever is making the switch from mobiles to consoles. Angry Birds has been purchased over 30 million times by people using the Apple iPhone/iPad or one of those Google Android things. It is also in the App Hall Of Fame!
Developers Rovio are working now working on a version for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii to expand their audience...and wallet!
Its chief executive says that kind of switch will become more and more common.
Rovio CEO Peter Vesterbacka stated "The smartphone gaming platform is actually turning out to be the biggest and most played out there. So it's starting to beat the traditional games on consoles and PCs."
Originally developed for the iPhone app store...it was later downloaded one million times in 24 hours after its release on Google's Android OS last month.
Peter Vesterbacka didn't go into details about when fans would be able to get the new versions of the game...other that there were definitely plans for an Angry Birds 2 early next year. Expect "a lot more pigs" and "pigs will be a lot more active" in the next edition.
