On a related note, I was not totally surprised to see Angry Birds arrive on the consoles...

I *was* surprised to see it arrived as a boxed set available at retail for $40. I mean, I know it's in HD and all, but a 4,000% markup over the smartphones? C'mon...

@PSYCHOV3N0M That's just the sort of outside-the-box thinking that Rovio is looking for! Do you want a job? :-)

Hmm, the trolling is strong in this article. Bet most of you haven't even tried the games for more than a couple of minutes. The simplicity of the gameplay just draws me right in, and yet trying to knock down all the pigs while doing as much damage as possible while using as few birds as possible and trying to get that magic three stars is addictive as crack!

Who's going to buy this? But then again, I keep wondering who is buying all this Angry Birds junk (i.e. shirts, bed sheets, and flash drives).

This just screams cash grab. You think they could be a little more creative instead of relying on combining two brand names that have nothing to do with each other?

@Tauu No. The Peanuts are slowly dying out, and they started in the 1960s.

Two companies that literally cannot help themselves from recycling the same IPs over and over and over. But then, if consumers want to keep paying for the same product, I don't blame the companies.

It will sell, since mobile gamers have too many dollars they don't know what to do with.

@Killer6b9 Don't forget the words "Starwars" are attached to it. If it was $99 dollars it would get record numbers.

"the supermassive Death Star ship." That's no moon... um, I mean, that's no ship, it's a space station!

Except for Star Wars 1313, which is A New Hope among mediocre games, the last time I was excited about a new Star Wars game is so distant that it feels like it was a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

Two overly used IP's combined into one to form the biggest attempt to cash in on exhausted titles. Prime example of what happens when money motivates creativity.

Think about the executive meeting that must have taken place, it probably went something like this:

Angry Birds Rep: "You know what the kids like? Star wars!"

StarWars Rep: "yes YES! I like where you're going... now, what if we are to make the birds... Star Wars Characters?!?!?!."

Angry Birds Rep: "OMG, that's gold. SOLID. GOLD."

[end of meeting]

@mlcarter815 oh yea, I'm sure it will. I could probably sell my carton of spoiled milk to Star Wars fanboys if I slapped a picture of Chewy on it and labeled it: "Chewy Curds"
