Haha, PC gamers got it at the same time as mobile devices! Although, I'm not sure why I'm laughing, because I don't care about Angry Birds.

The entire appeal of the original game is that it was free, for me at least...got boring quick.

I'll wait until this comes out for next-gen consoles in order to fully utilize their hardware capabilities.

This will join Diablo 3 as a game that didn't need to be on consoles.  Why?  Because they both suck.

Am I the only one who found Angry Birds repetitive and boring as hell?

I don't understand the effing popularity of Angry Birds. I just don't get it. Like, wtf. For real. I want to make a game called Angry Gamers where you launch gamers at snorting copies of the Angry Birds "video-games" and destroy it...

Sad thing is that this will sell because kids are going to want it and parent will buy it even if it is completely overpriced. This game is meant for a mobile device to play while you are waiting, on a trip, flying ect ect but not meant to be a console game.

I don't knw why people adore these stupid games....I have been playing games like Angry Birds for many years, so, I don't know what "new" did they find in this piece of crap that even today the markets are flooded with cheap Angry Birds Merchandise!

Star Wars is a joke right now. i haven't seen a good Star Wars product since battlefront and Knights of the Old Republic.

God I HATE Star Wars parodies and comedy crap like this.

If its something like 3 bucks than I don't give that much of a shit, but if they try to charge even half of a full priced game than everybody who buys it either has a lot of disposable income or is a complete and total idiot.

lewl uninstalled it a day after downloading the app for free. I cant believe how low star wars has fallen....   DICE is the only hope left with Battlefront. Future movie trilogy is going to be shit and a disgrace to the franchise.

why in the hell would you spend $40 on this when you could get this for free on your smart phone?

What is wrong with all the negativity with Angry Birds, it is fun game to play on iDevices, my dad loves to play it, and I must say I enjoy three stars each mission too. This game isn't suppose to be deep and sophisticated. It is perfect game to play while you wait for things to happen. Granted I got Angry Birds and Angry Birds Star Wars free when they were app of the week, If you pay for it then you are crazy.

That's the kind of game you play while commuting or having to wait in some place.I really don't picture myself sitting and trying to have an "experience" out of it.

But there has to be a market for this for them to make that kind of release on discs.And at that price tag? lol.

@kukikuamor Angry birds is fun for about a few hours and that's it. The idea of it going to consoles is just absurd. Like the fact that iPhone games are now what are being used in arcades. WTF?

@kukikuamor I didn't care much for the first game, but Angry Birds in Space was fun, but that got boring after a day like rest of the series.

@KriptoTitan I got it on PSN years ago (the original) and it was the only time the girlie picked up the controller.

It's not my favorit game of course, but every now and then, for a few levels it's ok (if you need a "party game")

It was only $5 on psn, not sure what the price will be

@borkkmor00 EA announced a new Star Wars Battlefront at E3 just in case you have not heard about  it.

@G4m3r0uTL4wZ Can't be worse than what Lucas in all his infinite wisdom did when given full control of it in episode 1.

@Grimkillah the fact that there have been many a game like this before AB was made scattered throughout the internet for free and AB is the only one that got way too lucky.

@Grimkillah I don't know... I think they aren't good at this game, that's why they hate it! Probably the same people who always complain about Call of Duty, and guess what? They are the ones who gets the game on release!

@Sampawende A console is too weak for this beast!! Better buy yourself a 2000$ PC if you wanna get above 20fps on this game!!

@Immortallix which is why I never actually paid for any of my AB copies, I only got them through Apple's "Free App of the Week" promotions.

@Jeff_Langlois @Grimkillah I hate COD and I've never bought one. Played it at a former friend's house, didn't like it. As for Angry Birds, it's good for what it is and you don't feel like messing with a console. Granted I play it on PC using a mouse.
