Angry Birds Trilogy coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS

For many the appeal of Angry Birds, the sensation by Rovio, was simple. A fantastic, yet intelligent, time waster that actually made you use your brain a bit while trying to shut off your brain for awhile. For a mere $.99 and a reasonable quick download, players were granted hours of fun and addictive noises (my favorite was the yellow bird) anywhere. On the subway, in bed, anywhere, and with over 1 billion downloads for iPhone and Android you didn’t even look like a nerd or some sort of loser  playing while you waited for your date to arrive at the bar, or even in the reception area before a job interview. OK, the latter might be pushing it.

Rovio and Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATVI?) have just announced that they will be packaging the original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Rio, and Angry Birds Seasons onto a single disk or cartridge  for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo 3DS. This trilogy will be lacking the newest release, Angry Birds Space, quite possibly their best work.

Rovio’s executive vice president of games, Petri Jarvilehto, has recently stated in interview’s that it has always been their intention to build these game with HDTV’s in mind. From the “ground up” if you will. The games themselves will feature heaps of features that will augment the trilogy when introduced to the console and your TV in December.

“The backgrounds have been animated, we’ve added lighting modes, reactive backgrounds, the list goes on and on,” Jarvilehto said. “We believe that there are a lot of people on the consoles who appreciate a great casual game play experience. This is a game that resonates across a wide audience on many platforms.”

In addition, the Xbox 360 version will offer Kinect support, the PlayStation 3 version will get PS Move support and StreetPass will be facilitated on the 3DS. This, not unlike the Facebook app, released earlier this year, will provide the opportunity for you to share your highest scores with the world.

It’s tempting to dismiss this newest offering, I wouldn’t. With tens of millions playing on Facebook, and the fact that most kids don’t have iPhones or Androids, there exists a sizable market for this console offering especially given the promises of HDTV and the additions of these promised new features.

While studying economics, Brendan found himself comfortably falling down the rabbit hole of restaurant work, ultimately opening a consulting business and working as a private wine buyer. On a whim, he moved to China, and in his first week following a triumphant pub quiz victory, he found himself bleeding on the floor based on his arrogance. The same man who put him there offered him a job lecturing for the University of Wales in various sister universities throughout the Middle Kingdom. While primarily lecturing in descriptive and comparative statistics, Brendan simultaneously earned an Msc in Banking and International Finance from the University of Wales-Bangor. He's presently doing something he hates, respecting French people. Well, two, his wife and her mother in the lovely town of Antigua, Guatemala. <i>To contact Brendan or give him an exclusive, please contact him at [email protected]</i>
