I bet the next gen consoles will really take this game to a higher level. Just think of the performance increase and whatnot when this game on a PS4 or Xbox One. A New Hope, indeed!

Why?  What could a next gen console possibly do to make this game any better than it's android/ipod counterpart?

Angry Birds is overrated and getting stale

Oh boy, I bet it'll be $20 too when I can get it for free or full version for like $3 on my phone. I do find it a little ironic people saying this isn't next gen when they want small indie games that also don't make full use of the hardware. I know it's not the same, but people can't have it both ways.

Next Gen can't get here soon enough.


But on a more serious note, I'd  be surprised if anyone who wants an Angry Birds game doesn't already have one.

yessss thats what i wanted my whole life.

Now port all ouya games so we can play them all.

The use of 400/500$ hardware on such games... Its like watching someone with the Tesla GPU play minesweeper or hidden object game...

Lol they are kidding right??? Angry Birds is ok for phones and tablets...but seems stupid to put them on PS4/xbone. Unless its free for the kiddies or something. It has to be free or a joke.
