Angry Birds to sling over other platforms
Coming ‘soon’ to PS3, WP7. PC version now available.
In three separate announcements (really guys, it’s a pain to follow), Angry Birds, unarguably iOS most popular game, will soon be coming onto the PS3 and Windows Phone 7, while a PC version is now available already.
Sony confirmed the release in their ‘The Drop of 2011′ blog post, mentioning the popular game among others scheduled for this year.
A twitter from Rovio Mobile later confirmed the game was also coming on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform, though no specific release date was mentioned except an ambiguous ”some months”.
And finally, in a press release Intel announced that Angry Birds had finally landed on their AppUp platform and is now ready to download.
“We’re excited to offer Angry Birds through the Intel AppUp center,” says Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. “Netbooks and consumer laptops are an untapped market for Angry Birds and a huge platform for casual gamers. Rovio looks forward to taking advantage of the innovative consolidated marketplace for PC apps Intel has provided.”
“We love Angry Birds. It’s one of our favorite games, so Intel is thrilled Rovio is bringing Angry Birds for the first time ever to netbooks and consumers laptops via AppUp.com” said Peter N. Biddle, general manager of the Intel AppUp center at Intel. “Intel is beyond excited to work with Rovio and deliver a version of Angry Birds that takes advantage of larger screens and faster processors. It’s gonna rock.”
The game will cost $9.99 to download from the Intel AppUp center. Angry is priced at $0.99 for the iPhone and $4.99 for the iPad.
