Angry Birds Takes the Reverse Path from Mobile to Consoles

Generally, popular games proceed from the PC or console up and make their way into a cheap/non-cheap knockoff on the mobile platform. This time, the story has been reversed. The mobile gaming platform has gained some credibility over the last few years and now, we have a mobile game moving on to the big screens.


Angry Birds is the most popular mobile game with over 36 million downloads and has been rated as the #1 app in more than 60 countries. This would be the perfect time to take this game to the next level and Rovio is on it. They are developing a version of Angry Birds for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii.

Rovio chief executive Peter Vesterbacka said,

The smartphone gaming platform is actually turning out to be the biggest and most played out there.  So it’s starting to beat the traditional games on consoles and PCs.

The game is so popular on mobile devices that Android users envied iPhone users for having it and when it was released for Android, it registered a million downloads in a single day. A plan for  Angry Birds 2 was also revealed by Vesterbacka.
