Lots more Angry Birds on the way

Angry Birds Xmas

It seems like only yesterday when Rovio Mobile launched its insanely popular Angry Birds upon the Android world. The game was so popular on iOS, that it was sure to be a smashing success on whatever platform it made it to. After its Android launch, the game quickly reached a million downloads in a single day. Since then, Rovio Mobile has added a 4th world to the game, leaving users with plenty of levels to work through.

Well, as with any new game, users are pummeling through the levels and are itching for something new. To satisfy these folk, Rovio Mobile released a Halloween edition of Angry Birds for iDevices. In another follow-up, as pointed out by Android Police, the world can expect oodles of additional Angry Birds "really soon."

According to some back and forth twittage, Rovio Mobile has confirmed the following for all its currently supported platforms:

  • There will be a Christmas edition of Angry Birds
  • There will be a 5th world update to the current version
  • New birds are "on the drawing board"
  • Releases/updates are coming soon

It's safe to assume that some new birds will make their way into the 5th world update and Christmas edition, though the specifics of Rovio Mobile's plans are unknown. There's also no word on whether or not the company plans to launch Angry Birds for Windows Phone 7 before the end of the year.

People need to get over this game! It isn't that fun! It's a good time waster now and then but it just gets boring real fast.

I tried it once to see what's the fuss about, still don't quite get it.

I have a SGS and a ipod, sadly the ipod version is far superior with more updates. Spread the love with the Android community and update this as much as the iplop version

I love the game, and find it very enjoyable but why the differences in platforms?

Because according to Rovio, Android is very hard to program for, with all that fragmentation and all.

I hope they release a lite version soon for those of us who are running under powered devices like the G1 and hero. (yeah yeah.. I know I need to upgrade lol)

I really wish they would stop releasing "new editions" and opting for an in-app purchase instead.

Yes, I bought the game once. Release updates/expansions for my game, not entirely new games please. In-app purchase would be ideal to unlock these new expansions.

This will definitely hit PS3 and Xbox networks soon I reckon

From a business point of view i think it would be awesome. However from a gamers points of view i don't think it would have the same pick up an play feel.

It wouldnt have to be the exact same feel. With the Kinect, Move, and Wii remote, all three systems could easily support it. The only issue I see is that most people don't sit down to play these games. They sit down for something else, and play these games while they wait. Hard to imagine someone turning on their systems just to play this. If anything, I could see this working in a multi game pack the way Wii sports is done.
