Angry Birds head to consoles

Angry Birds head to consolesAngry Birds is ready to spread its wings.

Yes, everyone's favorite game about ill-tempered avian creatures is making its way to the PS3, Xbox 360, and 3DS after being largely known as a mobile game.

Although not many specific details were revealed, it was said that the console launch will be an Angry Birds trilogy, so expect to see three classic Angry Birds titles as part of the release.

"There are new cinematics, extras and other entertaining content. In addition all of the existing material has been uprezzed and re-treated for the high-resolution and big screen," said Rovio in a statement.

After making a huge splash on smartphones and tablets, Angry Birds has made its way to traditional game consoles as a downloadable title, been introduced to stores with a whole line of retail merchandise, got a tie-in with the theatrical animated film Rio, and is accessible via download codes in the Blu-ray version of the 20th Century Fox flick.

So it's no surprise to see it jumping onto yet another platform. While it is a good, fun game, it is because of the marketing from developer Rovio and original publisher Chillingo that it has managed to skyrocket to blockbuster status.

This story isn't just about Angry Birds, though. The addition of gaming and a special controller makes Roku a more interesting player in the IPTV market, a market that has become increasingly troubling for dedicated external boxes like Roku.
