Angry Birds gets PC and PSN release

Intel lands Rovio hit for its AppUp download store

Rovio's mobile best-seller Angry Birds has been released on Intel's AppUp download service for PC.

AppUp, which could be seen as something of a rival to Apple's impending App Store for OSX, has been selling downloadable games and applications designed for lower-end PC hardware for several months. Angry Birds is arguably the store's first high-profile title.

The game currently sells for $4.99 on Intel's store, and is due to increase to $9.99 at a later date. This is a significantly higher price than the $0.99 iOS version, and than the free, ad-supported Android edition.

Angry Birds is also due for release on PSN today, for PS3 and PSP. XBLA and Wii versions are also planned.
