I only play Angry Birds when I don't have my 3DS on me, so... Meh: softcore phone games don't really make me want to empty my wallet.
Activision bringing Rovio's iconic mobile series to retailers with $40 Kinect and Move-compatible compilation for consoles, $30 3D edition for Nintendo handheld.
Angry Birds of a feather are flocking together, as Activision today announced that it will release the Angry Birds Trilogy compilation for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and 3DS.
Combining the original Angry Birds with Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Seasons (but not the recently released Angry Birds Space), the trilogy will introduce features suited to each of its new platforms. The Xbox 360 edition will support Kinect motion controls, while the PS3 game will incorporate Move functionality and the 3DS version will include 3D visuals and StreetPass features. In all three cases, Angry Birds purists will be able to turn off the additional functionality.
Set for release this holiday season, Angry Birds Trilogy will sell for $40 on home consoles, or $30 on the 3DS.
android version is free.. and i mean its not even that great of game, well actually for a free game its pretty good
Yes! i will gladly buy the Console versions for 40$ even though i can get it for 2$ on iPhone or Android which has the exact same content as the Console Version /Sarcasm, they can take their Console version and shove the disk up their ass for all i care.
Can we make a counter offer? I'll give them 10 max but I want all future levels and Space included free.
I know a lot of people won't agree with me, but I was actually waiting for a console version. I was thinking hey, maybe I'd pay 400 MS points - which I believe is roughly $5.80 CAD, or something like that - for it. So... Times the most ammount I was willing to pay by 7 point something and... Ah hell, screw you Activision. I am going to love watching this game fail to sell a single copy at my work place, well, save for the fact that it will be taking up valuable shelf space.
Are you kidding me? They didn't even have the decency to include Space, the one game that tried something. $40, really? They better not say consoles are doomed because this bombs.
think the birds done flew the coop... dont think i ever see any1 playing this game anymore. that high price tag wont help them sell imo. not when u can get it for free on any smart phone
This is horrible. The most mind-numbing, time-wasting game is coming to home consoles. It's one thing if your in a car or, for some people, in a class. But playing Angry Birds on a couch in your home is just a complete waste of your life. At least play something that involves more then pulling back a slingshot.
Holy crap Activision!!! Are you handicapped or just stupid?!! 95% of the population has already played, beaten, and replayed Angry Birds to death. How scuzzy are you to think you can sell these 3 games, that are free on android btw, for $40?!! Not even as a $5 dlc game, but $40!!! I know for a fact NOONE WILL BUY THIS. You are blatantly trying to rip people off and you're about 2 years too late.
almost everyone with a smartphone owns anrgy birds already because it costs less than a coffee, so why would anyone buy it again especially for this price?
I'm not at all angry (no pun intended) about the success of these games. I think they will make great party games...easy to learn and play in bursts, and good comic fun for a group or family. Sometimes we core gamers forget that there is a market for that type of fun.However, I am disappointed in (a) the cost of these games and (b) that they aren't planning a PS Vita version. I think the Vita's big screen, processing power, and touch inputs make it the perfect system for Angry Birds. It could give the best of the mobile version's tactile inputs and the improved animations and cutscenes of the console versions.
$40 for angry birds? I can't wait to see the number of copies they don't sell. This game does not translate to consoles and especially not for the price. This is a mobile game, real gamers will not buy this game. Yet another reason I don't buy anything from Activision.
It's Activision, what did you expect?
they will probably release angry birds space as a $30 dlc, and then every free chapter from the ios version will be $15. Then they will make AB Elite a stunning new service where you give bobby kotick more money. Sounds about right.
$40 bucks, Why?
If i see any of my friends on live playing this i'm taking them off of my friends list.
One does not simply turn social flash into AAA, curse this game and all who mock our faithful industry by supporting it.
If they're going to release these games, fine, but don't gouge us on it. All three announced platforms have a way to download games. I know the enhancements cost money to do, but not that much.
the way my girl friend love this angry birds crap,she better not find out its goner be available on the X360 because am be trying to play Halo4 and she goner want to play this crap, i forsee lots of fighting which am all goner lose although its my X360
i thought we as console gamers hate this games because they killing our beloved main stream AAA games or we now cool with such games and i should also be excited about this
So Gamespot, you finally got this page to work?
Lol, this trilogy isnt worth 40 bucks, it isnt even worth 30 bucks, hell its not even worth it when its free.
I hope this angry birds craze would die allready. When I go to a small local store theres angry birds soda, AB candy, AB plushies ect. Kids seem to like it, I personally dont know a single Finnish or foreign person who would actually like these games. And yet Im sure that these console ports will sell like crazy. I just...dont get it. I guess its the magic of marketing?
