    Angry Birds to move to consoles

    Ciara O'Brien

    It’s possibly one of the most addictive mobile games out there, and now the Angry Birds have their sights firmly set on consoles.

    Not content with dominating the iPhone, iPad, Android and Symbian phones, Rovio is planning to migrate the mobile game to your living room. It’s a path that games like Plants vs Zombies have also tried, and while they can’t compete with the likes of Call of Duty or Assassin’s Creed in the graphics stakes, they certainly hook players in.

    I’m a long-time fan of the game, although I’ve not yet managed to get the full three stars throughout all the levels, despite playing for so long I’ve probably increased my chances of RSI in years to come. And since my iPhone decided to stage a silent protest earlier this week, it looks like I’m back to the beginning anyway.

    It’s not yet known when the birds will make it into console format – some time next year apparently – so in the meantime, have some (slightly sweary) Angry Birds peace talks.
