Angry Birds Protested by Other Cartoon Pigs and Birds

Everyone from Daffy to Rocksteady have come together to bring you this public service announcement. This message is a very serious one, with every celebrity bird and pig speaking out against what they're calling the "Angry Birds War." This is a war where noone is safe, pig or bird, and where birds and pigs deaths number in at over 1 billion, "that number nearly doubling if you count every blue bird as four birds" (that's right!)

Angry Birds RIO Coming Soon! [With Movie Tie-In!]

So GET THIS - the next version of Angry Birds is still most likely going to be the Valentines Edition since that day lies behind the projected release of this one, but this one seems a bit more exciting: Angry Birds RIO. Do you know what RIO is? It's an animated movie along the lines of ICE AGE. Does this mean there will be some Angry Birds in the movie? Let's ask Peter Vesterbacka, aka Mighty Eagle at Rovio.

Angry Birds: Tired and Boring

First of all, no, "tired and boring" is not the name of the next expansion. Let's talk for a moment about Angry Birds, the franchise. It's a game that's available for Android, iOS, soon to come to a plethora of different platforms, and it's a board game. And they have toys made of the characters, they plan on making a television show out of it, and they want to make a movie. And there's cakes. So many cakes made of Angry Birds and their pig adversaries. The cake you see below this paragraph is the death cake. A nice lady from a different state made this cake for a very good purpose (to eat it,) but it marks the end. Angry Birds has run its course, and we're right here calling it dead in the water.

Angry Birds Adds new Video Advertisements on Startup

We all love free apps, and although it's great not having to pay for an application, the advertisements can certainly hinder the user experience. If you have opened up Angry Birds lately then you might have noticed a full length video ad before startup. Android users were considered lucky to have their port of Angry Birds available for free, but after many annoying advertisements, that can break up gameplay, and now this, I'm sure many of us would be willing to drop the $.99 to just have an uninterrupted gameplay experience.

Angry Birds “Bad Piggy Bank” in-app payments announced

Angry Birds developer Rovio has announced a new in-app payment system that will debut on Android, charging upgrades - such as to remove the adverts in the free title, or to buy the upcoming "Mighty Eagle" update - directly to a user's cellphone bill rather than demanding credit card details. "Bad Piggy Bank" will also be made available to other Android app developers, according to Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka, potentially filling a gap for in-app payments on the Android platform. The roll-out will begin with Finnish carrier Elisa, before a global roll-out in 2011; it requires carrier agreements so as to process the payments on a user's cellphone account. Meanwhile Vestabacka also revealed that Angry Birds has seen a total of 50m downloads to-date, a fifth of which have been on Android. [via TechCrunch]
