Angry Birds Magic Places bringing NFC and location gaming to all platforms
In addition to the NFC features which will allow users to unlock content through connecting with other devices and location-specific NFC tags, Angry Birds Magic will use GPS location data to unlock special content. The guys at Rovio are being picky about what locations make the cut, though. They want to be sure that the location and the content unlocked make sense, like unlocking the beach volleyball content if you visit certain beaches.
More content for all versions of Angry Birds sounds great, but we shudder to think of the airfare that will be wasted when those addicted to Angry Birds have to fly around the world to collect all the new content offered only through location specific tags.
