Angry Birds Crack a Smile Over 30 Million Downloads During Christmas Week
During the week of Christmas (Dec 22nd – Dec 29th) Angry Birds was downloaded over 30 million times. This means that there was one Angry Birds download for every other new device. According to Rovio, Angry Birds was downloaded over 8 million times on Christmas day alone.
It seems as if the Angry Birds franchise is going from strength to strength, and there is no sign that the feathered franchise will be slowing down any time soon. Rovio’s latest version of the game: Angry Birds Star Wars, has been sitting at the top of the iOS app store since its launch back in November, and that version of the game has just been ported over to Facebook, Quite what else Rovio might have up ts sleeve to keep the franchise fresh, and appealing is beyond me, but they obviously know how to milk the cash cow.
