Angry Birds goes to consoles

It is Thanksgiving day and that means it is time for your Thanksgiving bird, or rather – birds. Angry Birds. No reason for them to be angry, though, with 36 million downloads across different mobile platforms, the game is as popular as ever. But Rovio, the company behind it, does not plan on stopping here. The game is now being developed for the major gaming consoles, according to Rovio's chief executive Peter Vesterbacka. Just when are we going to have the birds flying on our living room TV sets? The game is expected to hit Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii sometime in 2011.



Not only that, but Rovio's main man confirmed a second version of Angry Birds is coming to smartphones as well. "Let's say that you will see a lot more of the pigs. The pigs will be a lot more active than just being slingshotted at by birds", Vesterbacka gave a look behind the curtain. Did we mention that all kinds of plush angry bird toys are available too? It seems like the game is getting mainstream with popularity close to that of Super Mario. Okay, maybe not that close.



Finally, Angry Birds is also set to get a Christmas version sometime in December - take a look at the screenshot below. Angry Birds got a Halloween version in October and with such a release schedule it definitely meets our criteria for regular updates!

They could add soo much more detail to the game if they release it for game systems. It'd make more sense if it were to use the PlayStation Move, X-Box Kinect, and of course the Wii.

Hey friends I found this game much better; I loved playing it and the characters are very beautiful as well. I am sure you would like it as I did. This is for iOS.
