When someone gets a smartphone, it seems that Angry Birds is one of the first things they download. Developer Rovio says that Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio racked up 6.5 million downloads on Christmas Day.
Apparently Rovio and Focus Multimedia have no qualms whatsoever about PC piracy affecting retail sales because that's exactly where they're headed with the Angry Birds franchise...to retail outlets.
Today Google confirmed the rumored games service for Google+ today. Starting today you can play a number of high-profile games through the budding social network.
Following the runaway success of their puzzle game Angry Birds, developer Rovio is looking to bring the title to new platforms. One such port will be coming to Facebook sometime this year.
