Angry Birds to hit shop shelves this month

Rovio flings wings to retail

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Angry Birds continues on its course toward global domination today when developer Rovio announced the game will be coming to retail later this year.

Angry Birds for PC

The original Angry Birds is set to take flight on PCs on 25 November and will sell for around a tenner. That'll be followed by Angry Birds Rio sometime before Christmas, with Angry Birds Seasons migrating these ways in 2012.

Mac users can already download a version through the Mac App Store.

While the game has been downloaded more than half a billion times to mobile devices around the globe, the only Angry Birds in shops so far have been plush toys and T-shirts.

And jobsworth checkout staff, of course. ®
