Angry Birds makes its long awaited Windows Phone 7 debut; available now
Call it a long time coming, but those simmering Angry Birds are finally making their presence known with Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform – and the time couldn’t have been sweeter!

Arriving just in time for that June 29th deadline, Rovio’s ever popular Angry Birds game is now available for download in the Windows Marketplace for $2.99. Of course, if you’re not yet set on purchasing it, you can always “try” it for free. Even though we’ve seen a few different games that emulate the Angry Birds look and feel, the actual game is now here in the flesh for all Windows Phone 7 users to experience.

So if you decide to buy the game, jut expect to be totally immersed for some time seeing that there are 165 levels that you’ll need to get through before claiming total victory against those darn green piggies.

i only wonder why microsoft wants to charge 3 bucks for a game that's free on every other platform (droid, ios, sym^)... this kinda makes me sad. but anyways i'll definitely get it.

Its .99 on IOS. The free version is a trial. I'm a slave to achievements and gamerscore so i tucked my shame away and bought it. Its only 3 bucks. I'd complain about the price if I were a teen living off allowance.

This is exactly the crap holding me back from this OS. Seriously Microsoft? Paying for a FREE GAME? And I'm not a cheap ass, its just that I like to play many games on my phone and I'm not spending an additional 100 dollars to do so. If Microsoft wants this to succeed, they need to cut this s**t out.

They did away with those annoying ads that pop up on the Android version and added achievements and gamerscore. However, I do think the game should have been priced at .99 instead.

Still man, 3 bucks? If I can get apps for free and sideload them to my phone, that is the one I am going with. Not to mention Sprint has one WP7 phone. Sooo getting galaxy s 2 if there isn't a mango phone by my upgrade. I'm rambling now lol.

relax, Mango will pwn them all, and hopefully microsoft will realize that 3bucks for a .99 game is waaaay too much, and reprice it at like a dollar. would make sense.

I'm honestly debating whether I should get the Samsung Within (GS2), or stick around for a decent WP7 phone (that may never come to Sprint). The UI of the WP7 is amazing, but I don't know if it is enough for me to switch over. Free apps, games, and downloading music seems pretty reasonable to me. I don't even use Limewire or Frostwire anymore on my computer... A dual core could be phone that would fit my personal needs... The entire rooting/customizing is amazing on Android, but Windows is much more simple and easier to use. I'm basically stuck in the middle lol.
