Angry Birds Coming to PSN, XBLA, and Wii; Multiplayer a Top Priority

By Brian Leahy, Nov 12, 2010 2:00pm PST Rovio's Angry Birds, which is quite popular, will be coming to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii, the company revealed at the first Social Gaming Summit in London.

Attendees tweeted out details (compiled by PocketGamer) on the future of Angry Birds, which remains with developer Rovio despite Electronic Arts buying the game's original publisher Chillingo.

It is unclear if the PlayStation version discussed is the PlayStation Mini version, which was announced back in August, and could still potentially be published by Chillingo.

Additionally, multiplayer is said to be a top-priority for Rovio and while the gameplay hasn't been nailed down, it could be reminiscent of old school Worms games. Aspirationally, Rovio hopes that Angry Birds becomes bigger than Tetris and is planning on expanding the universe to movies, television, toys, and more.

A direct-sequel is not planned, but Rovio will definitely make more games within the franchise. The story of the pigs, for example, has not been told yet.
