rovio must be rolling in it.

people will get bored of this one day.


Not really...it's the type of game most casual players can pick up, play, put down and have fun with it for a cost that is a fraction of what normal games cost.

Model is here to stay.

I agree, Angry Birds is fun for a while, but gets boring fast. And the school I work at is even considering putting it on all the iPads we have so kids can learn about physics. But hey, as Prezbo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roland_%22Prez%22_Pryzbylewski) said,

Trick them into thinking they're not learning and they do.

I'm not gonna make any predictions about this game or iOS games in general, but I love that parents who've spent $1000s on console games now spend 99c to keep the same kid just as occupied..

I'm personally sick of seeing Angry Birds everywhere.

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for Rovio and glad for their success but its everywhere....

is this a game?


Game: a (1) activity engaged in for diversion or amusement

I'd say...yes it's a game...and in fact is what a game is for most casual gamers.

Do people really enjoy ads in their games or what? I was going to buy Angry Birds since it's all the rage, I figure it must be fun (I just adore Bejeweled), but when I read that it has ads in it despite being a paid app and I won't stand for ads in paid apps. No thanks. It apparently doesn't bother 50 million other people, though.

What annoys me with Rovio (and many other iOS games developpers) is that I have to pay twice if I want the iPad HD version and the iPhone version. Very uncool.

I think they've made their money back on their investment with this one. Once this dies down, I'm sure they already have their next viral game. Crazy cash rolling in.


That's why gaming will be continuing on this iOS model for years to come. The base is just staggering and growing. Even consoles cannot match iOS distribution out there. As the graphic chips catch up, you'll be seeing almost all gaming, other then high end on tablets.

Better to make a game and sell lots at a small price point then less at a high price point.
