Though it’s not clear as to why it’s even necessary they make a move like this, Angry Birds developed Rovio has spiced Angry Birds up with some Christmas flare in anticipation of the holiday season. While it may have been addicting enough as it is, now you can launch your favorite feathery friends toward destruction in full Christmas garb, including Santa hats and cleverly placed packages that get you in the right mood while you spend hours of your life getting that last 2×4 to fall.
Angry Birds, which has sold over 10 million copies, completely embarrasses everyone else in the iPhone/iPad app store that once had a pretty even level of competition: Plenty of games ranked high and made fair amounts of money, but there were always substantial flaws or lack of updates that ended up washing them out. Angry Birds, though, has seemingly never faulted—even garnering enough fame to have its own Wikipedia page.
Angry Birds has topped the “Top Paid” section of the app store and sits at around 66057 ratings, with an average of 5/5 stars. It also boasts a list of “most downloaded” and “#1 iPhone App” in more countries than you could possibly imagine.
And now, as if this game wasn’t enough, Rovio has decided to try and bring Angry Birds to other platforms as well: it’s rumored the game will make its way to the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii. While it’s hard to imagine the game on any platform but a mobile handheld, it’s hard to imagine it wouldn’t do well if it was expanded on and brought to a console as popular as the Xbox 360.
