Activision to Sell Angry Birds Console Version for $40

Angry Birds Trilogy

Angry Birds continues to dominate App Stores and Platforms alike but it hasn’t hit consoles yet. Back in July we learned that the popular mobile title will be coming to our tv screens and the 3DS this holiday season and it seems that it will be coming soon.

Rovio and Activision have teamed up to bring Angry Birds to consoles and this means instead of paying under $3 for all 3 games, like you can on App Stores, you will have to give Activision $40 for all 3 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 but only $30 for the 3DS version.

The games will only include the original 19-levels of each game and not include all of the free updates. But all three games have been digitally remastered, with 1080p graphics, brand new never before seen cutscenes, Kinect/Move support, 3D support, achievements and lots of unlockables.

Instead of being 3 separate apps, like on smartphones, the games will be in the same package. The trilogy will sell in stores, on a disc or a cartridge. I would also expect a downloadable version, but that hasn’t been announced yet.

The downside of this whole thing is that Trilogy isn’t the full Angry Birds experience. Sure, you can play on a TV in gorgeous 1080p, but the 700+ levels doesn’t meet the 855 levels that Kotaku counted across those three Angry Birds titles. The Trilogy doesn’t include any of the updates released over the past year, nor does it include Angry Birds Space.
