Angry Birds Assaulting PSN this Week

Angry Birds - you love it, we love it and the whole world loves it. And now this addictive platformer is about to get a serious upgrade as it makes its way to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable (PSP) via the PlayStation Network (PSN) this week.

You won't like them when they're angry

According to the official PlayStation Blog, the game will be available on the PlayStation Network in the form of a PlayStation mini, compatible with both the PSP and PS3. The console port will feature all the 63 physics based levels you’ve grown to love from the iOS, Android and Symbian platforms.

Now in case you’re clueless about the cultural phenomenon that is Angry Birds, I won’t judge you as I was rather late to the party myself but here’s what you’ve been missing out on so far:__STARTQUOTE__Angry Birds' premise is extremely simple and herein lies its greatest draw. Everyone from your mother to your friends can pick this game up in a matter of minutes. And since there’s no campaign or story to worry about over here, this is the perfect in-between game to play whether you’re on the move, on the John (hey we all do it), or are getting bored at school/work. Another huge draw of the game is that even though it’s easy to pick up, it’s pretty tough to master as latter levels can test your skills and patience. You see us human are a competitive race who always feel the need to better ourselves and Angry Birds has tapped into this sentiment brilliantly egging us on (pun intended) to improve our score. And there’s plenty of room for you to do so as the game is humongous boasting of nearly sixty levels, all of which provide a different challenge. Add to this numerous free and paid updates released so far and you’re looking at some serious bang for your buck.__ENDQUOTE__
