Angry Birds Trilogy Sells Over One Million Units, Despite Costing £30

Jeffrey Matulef: ''Angry Birds Trilogy has sold over one million units worldwide, publisher Ubisoft has announced.

Given the series' ridiculous popularity, that may not sound like a lot, but remember, this isn't the 69p Angry Birds that we all know and love, but rather the outlandishly priced £30 / $40 retail version on Xbox 360, PS3 and 3DS (note: the 3DS version is a little cheaper at £24 / $30).'' (3DS, Angry Birds Trilogy, PS3, Xbox 360)

You can't double facepalm....
You have to have one hand free to play the game.

just admit it.....you like it. I play it on the PSP/PS3 myself.

I'm not 1 of those haters of Angry Birds
I play it all the time and the support that Rovio give the game is 2nd to none, I mean there will always be new levels and new spin off which are all available through FREE updates to keep people playing and I enjoy all these for FREE on my Android phones and also on PC with Bluestacks!

see...FREE! so why the hell do people pay for it when it's $40?? seriously people are way dumber then I thought they are!

Not everyone here is an Angry Birds hater. They're just questioning how this game sold a million copies when you can get all 3 games for free.

I think there's a logical explanation though. They're are kids who like it but don't have a phone. And they're are kids who do, but wanted it simply because they heard Angry Birds was on 3DS or whatever.

1) Not everyone has a smart phone.

2) Not everyone has an iDevice.

3) Not everyone has ready access to a computer

Are you people really this THICK, that you can't imagine these things?
badz149  +   895d ago
^^^
but they somehow have a PS3 or 360? in this day and age, if you have a PS3 and 360, you probably have AT LEAST 1 of the things you listed!

The casual market continues to kick the rest of us gamer's in the twig & berries with their ignorance and indifference.
darthv72  +   896d ago
do you seriously imply...
that a game cant be simple yet addictive and fun to play?

then again, im sure the 'core' felt threatened by Pac-Man back in the day.

@below..but it ISNT you that is buying it so why does it matter so much?

Obviously not everyone buys the same things but they are buying it for some reason or another. Perhaps they dont have a tablet or phone. Perhaps they like the use of a real controller. Perhaps its their choice.

Or perhaps you just need to not worry about it and play something else that suits you.

but its available on ios for a fraction of that or android for free
SilentNegotiator  +   896d ago
No, the implication is that getting the price jacked up a crazy amount and people buying it anyway will create precedent on the way things are handled in general in the industry and have major effects on us.

How could you misinterpret that without being in super ultra defense mode?

"super ultra defense mode"
that's not half bad.

Neither is the game on the PSP.

S.U.D.M...activate!
SilentNegotiator  +   896d ago
Actually, I played it on the PSP and it's terrible compared to on a phone. There are stages where you LITERALLY can't pull off the same moves because of the way it "clicks" from angle to angle using the control nub.

And fine, "Super ultra defense mode" wasn't clever, but if I had to come up with new ways of expressing incredible magnitude for irrationally defending something for you, I would have to do it for everyone that did it. And then I'd be inventing new terms all day long.
Merrill  +   896d ago
I'm not dogging on the game, I'm upset that people actually paid that price for it, A MILLION PEOPLE!!!!

It's a .99c game on IOS & $40 on consoles......

The game its self is a great toilet game, but in no way worth $40, regardless of how many versions are packed on a disc.
darthv72  +   896d ago
true...but
i actually enjoy the PSP version. The controls are better (IMO) because of the analog slider.

It may not have all the levels of the expansion packs but its still fun to play. Even on the toilet (as you say).
Killzoner99  +   896d ago
You see how stupid gamers are these days. They'll spend money on this garbage game and not buy a Vita. I'm at a loss for words.
NastyLeftHook0  +   896d ago
good, we need more original ip's like this. i hope the industry starts adopting this way of gaming. also, angry birds is underrated and deserves more.
Snookies12  +   896d ago
Please tell me that is sarcasm... Underrated? I can't go to a store WITHOUT seeing something Angry Birds. It's EVERYWHERE, like an infection... It's just becoming annoying lately with all the advertising and marketing it gets.
NastyLeftHook0  +   896d ago
no its not sarcasm, i thought ico and shadow of the colossus were original but this...omg it takes the take.

I agree, I would definitely drop down $60 EACH for a temple run 1 & 2 on the PS3 & Vita @ 1080p. Also, I would be more inclined to pay $80 for a Pocket Planes port provided they give me 1000 in-game cash that would last me 20 min. And yes, I want Infinity Blade port for the Vita with full console price at $60 as well. Extremely worth the money.

Innovation man, I love dem casual games. Bring it on.

Dungeon Hunter Alliance was £30 on the Vita which was basically a port from the iOS...

But let me guess, this is different right?
DigitalAnalog  +   896d ago
"But let me guess, this is different right?"

No, it isn't. I would gladly pay $60 for Dungeon Hunter Alliance. Personally, the $30 price on the Vita is a steal. Honest. I'd buy one for the PS3 WITHOUT the cross-buy. Cause you know, I support new IP! :)

Proof that gamers in general are terribly stupid consumers.
Gamer1982  +   896d ago
Sorry NOWHERE sells this at £30. If they do I can bet you they don't sell any copies most sell for about £16.. Still its a joke they still sell.. No doubt its mothers looking and going "oh angry birds! I know that game!" and buying it.
Pintheshadows  +   896d ago
It was 20 quid in Tesco. The next week it was sold out. It is pretty agonising to see no Angry Birds and a shelf crammed with Darksiders 2 which was the same price.
ApolloTheBoss  +   896d ago
One million sheep. WHY...would you pay 30 bucks for three boring games you get on Android for three damn dollars?!

The only game i've actually found on Android that instigated the thought 'this is cool' was Plague Inc. All the rest of it is throwaway tosh, or cheap and broken imitations of games consoles and PC's do far better.

I don't really know why i'm ranting at you. I'm sorry.

Free on android!
klecser  +   895d ago
I just find it really hard to believe that you all can't imagine that some people don't have access to smart phones or iDevices or a computer or a console. You can't seem to imagine or comprehend that market, but its clearly there. Whenever any of you post about Angry Birds on a handheld selling well, it just reveals how sheltered you are and how "first world" all of your problems are. Call me the troll, but you people really need to be taken down a peg, because the idiocy here is just astounding.
