The game is currently available on Android, iDevice, PC, PlayStation 3, PSP, Mac, and online via Chrome as well as various less prominent mobile platforms.Windows Phone 7 will feel its benefit shortly.

The Angry Birds merchandising line, which runs to shirts and plushies, has managed three million units shifted.

    I played the web-based version last week and…. er…. I can’t really see why it’s so popular, to be honest. Diverting enough for five minutes, but I’ve had no inclination to go back to it.

    @4 I agree. Decent time-waster with some nice artwork, but the same could be said of thousands of other flash games that get released all the time.

    I can understand the popularity that something special like Minecraft gets. Angry Birds, however… I am stumped.

    @4 Well that’s just it. You’ve played the web-based version! It’s a great game to play while traveling or waiting for an appointment. For me it’s nothing but a time killer. I’m willing to bet that it’s just that, a time killer, for a lot of people.
