Angry Birds Coming to the PS3 and PSP
The most popular iPhone/iTouch game, Angry Birds, is headed to the PlayStation 3 and PSP. Today, it announced that the puzzle game will be a available to download “soon” according to the official PlayStation blog, and the visuals will be fully optimized for the PSP.
Since it was released on the iPhone last December, it has gone on to sell 6.5 million units and it is still consistently a top seller on Apple’s App Store. Because of the popularity, the developer, Rovio, has ported the title to various other phones and has seen the same type of success.
The game is simple and the story is foolish — but in a humorous way. The Angry Birds have noticed that their eggs have been snatched by green pigs. The Birds want their revenge and attach themselves to a giant catapult which launches them the air, causing destruction.
The player chooses the speed and direction of each bird, while calculating each birds strengths and weaknesses, and shoots them into the air causing structures to fall and hoping to land on a pig. While it’s a simple concept and feels a lot like Boom Blox for the WIi, it’s easily one of the more addictive games you’ll play.
