Angry Birds Trilogy sells 1 million units

Angry Birds Trilogy sells 1 million units

Fri 15 Feb 2013 2:22pm GMT / 9:22am EST / 6:22am PST

Console retail release is a big hit despite the high price

Angry Birds Trilogy has sold more than 1 million units across Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and 3DS worldwide.

Released in September last year, Angry Birds Trilogy collects Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio on a single disc. Initially, a $40 price-point for three mobile games - albeit with new levels and features - seemed high.

Evidently, consumers saw it differently, and Activision and Rovio are now preparing to launch Angry Birds Trilogy on the Wii U this year.

"It was certainly satisfying to see Angry Birds gameplay adapt so well to other platforms in 2012," said Rovio's EVP of games, Petri Järvilehto, in a statement. "The features specific to the Wii U are very intriguing to us, so we're excited to release this version to fans."

Rovio continues to build on its enormously successful core franchise. Angry Birds is now so popular that the Finnish company has assembled a new team to find major brands interested in using the game as an advertising platform.

It's a long game, it takes 100s of hours to get a platinum. :)

^ That may be the case, but selling this for £30+ when you can get them separately on iOS and Android for about £2.50 is just criminal.

Well, Jaime, when you can play Android games natively on a PS3, then that makes sense. Then again, I'd gather a lot of those sales went to:

1) people who never played the games before and think 3 games for $40 on a disc is inexpensive
2) people who WANTED to play them, but can't see for shit on a smartphone screen
3) people who played them already and bought it as a gift for a friend/relative/other who ONLY has a console/hates mobile gaming
4) people who looooove them some Angry Birds and don't mind paying for the game for the PS3 stuff not in the originals
and so forth and so on...

Me, I wanted to know for a while the who and how many, but I got the how many part (I figured it would be about 1 - 2 million), so I'm satisfied. I don't own this at all as hell, it's too damn expensive, but I'd pay maybe $15 - $20 at most because it's on a disc (and I can't see for shit on those phone screens)...

So this was 1m shipped? Or sold? Love to see actual sales figures. The brand is well enough known, such that retailers would order 1m units worldwide.
