Angry Birds Headed To Xbox 360, PS3 And Wii

Angry Birds may be a staple for most smartphones, but developers Rovio are now looking to traditional consoles for the next stage of the game's expansion. Studio CEO Peter Vesterbacka has confirmed that Angry Birds for Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii are all in development, though there's no timescale for its release. Meanwhile, Angry Birds 2 is also in the works.

"The smartphone gaming platform is actually turning out to be the biggest and most played out there" Vesterbacka suggests, "so it's starting to beat the traditional games on consoles and PCs." He expects more mobile games to make the jump to mainstream consoles over the next year.

As for Angry Birds 2, that won't be a direct sequel but involve a different type of gameplay. "Let's say that you will see a lot more of the pigs," Vesterbacka teases, "the pigs will be a lot more active than just being slingshotted at by birds."
