Angry Birds Invade Windows

If you haven’t already played the highly addictive bird flinger Angry Birds on the multitude of platforms it’s already available on – including straight from your Chrome browser – Rovio is now offering a PC version of the original game and Angry Birds Rio for an agreeable $4.95 a pop over on their site. The PC version is compatible with Windows XP SP2 or greater and, of course, does not require a browser to play.

The news comes just a few days after Roku announced plans to bring the popular title to its new line of video-streaming set-top boxes as part of its new casual gaming initiative.

Since the launch of Angry Birds in 2009, the title has been downloaded a mind-boggling 200 million times. With Angry Birds already in the works for WiiWare, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, it would appear that Rovio has some sort of diabolical plan to take over the digital world. Either that or they just really want people to enjoy flinging birds from a giant slingshot. I’m going to go with the former, personally.
