Angry Birds to hit shop shelves this month
Rovio flings wings to retail
Angry Birds continues on its course toward global domination today when developer Rovio announced the game will be coming to retail later this year.
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. ®
Or just install Chrome and play it for free*
*assuming you don't consider letting Google in to be too much of a cost to bear.
You don't need Chrome to play A.B. on a PC ...
... you can play it within Google + using any browser (I assume. I use IE9).
Wow - I wonder how many minutes they spent making the cover.
Apparently, not a whole lot.
Background; probably supposed to look like a sunrise in light green/marine pastel colors, with cloudlike sides and bottom.
Slap a title and one angry bird on it - done.
I think it deserves better, but maybe that's just me.
Re:Who are they targetting?
Your mother might not pick it up for *herself* but someone's mother might pick it up as a gift. Remember it's Christmas coming up.
Is there actually anyone who *hasn't* played Angry Birds (that would want to)?
I can't see my mother buying it, even if she could pick it up from the supermarket on her weekly shop. So who exactly are they targeting with a retail release?
Paris because she's not an angry bird.
