2016s a really long time away but hope it gives Disney/Pixar and dreamworks a run for their money.

I'd pay double for a live action version

I heard there's already a movie about this game, it's called RIO.

They made an Angry Birds game from RIO but it's just an IP about a bird. No relation.

It makes you wonder, will the casual hype around this game still be relevant at all when the movie releases? The game is already losing steam as is.....

All the toys and merchandise was clearanced out of all local stores here last month.

Angry Birds movie? Ugh...although it is from the people who made the wonderful Hotel Transylvania...

Hotel Transylvania was pretty good, but Smurfs.. that shitter ruined a few childhoods i would imagine. Why do they always have to bring the characters into the "real" world or interact them with humans..

Almost as bad as making a movie about giant transforming robots and then concentrating almost entirely on some pointless teenagers or a bunch of army dudes, but who would do that right?

Sony makes a movie about the main game that killed the Vita. Oh the irony.
Alos88  +   838d ago
Wow, that isn't irony OR correct! Way to go, you were wrong on two levels at once!
CEOSteveBallmer  +   838d ago
Irony?? are you high?? Who said vita is dead?? im still playing my vita and so does people I know. And in worldwide sales, its ahead of Wii-U. What I don't like is sony partnering to make an angry birds movie. Wow.
DiRtY  +   838d ago
Oh, the dead Wii U is selling less than the dead Vita! AWESOME ACHIEVEMENT!

Seriously, even Sony expects the Vita to sell somewhere in the 3-4 million region worldwide for the entire year... Don't deny it.

3rd partys do not care, the demand is not there and pricecuts won't be a sustainable business model. It saw its first xmas in the West with big incentives and bundles (Assassin's Creed) and it had 2 xmas seasons in Japan and it sits at 5 million consoles sold worldwide. Heck the Xbox 360 / PS3 sell more than 10 million consoles in their 8th / 7th year. The Vita is done.

Angry bird?? The irony is that even Sony is acknowledging what is popular in portable gaming when they are willing to go make a movie based on a competing game for smartphones rather than make a movie based on one of its own PS VITA franchise. This spells trouble for the long term survival of the VITA, I am afraid.

Well you know they do sell Smartphones too.
raytraceme  +   837d ago
their xperia z sold a estimated 4.6 million in 40 days. thats about the same the vita did in a year.
tiffac008  +   837d ago
All the more reason they should make the movie then. lol!

If its funny like Hotel Transylvania then it will be okay.
