The lights are on
Update: Activision confirmed pricing for the game: $39.99 for Xbox 360 and PS3 and $29.99 for 3DS.
Activision's pulling back the curtain on its E3-announced deal with Angry Birds maker Rovio.IGN reports that the trilogy will include Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds Rio (not the newer Angry Birds Space) for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and 3DS this holiday."You can think of the game as the ultimate collector’s edition," Rovio executive vice president of games Petri Järvilehto tells the site. "There are new cinematics, extras and other entertaining content. In addition all of the existing material has been uprezzed and re-treated for the high-resolution and big screen." Strangely, the game will be boxed up for retail instead of being downloadable. Move, Kinect, and StreetPass will all be supported.

Why is it retail? This sounds pretty stupid and greedy.
Without Space this package definitely feels incomplete. I'd rather play ABS than the Rio edition any time.
iOS and Android, $3. Consoles: $15.
This is a trilogy? I thought they were just level packs for the original game.
Yea I don't see this doing very well. The whole point of Angry Birds is that you can play it for about 5 minutes at a time, like on a bus ride and such.
ahhh. Angry Birds. the CoD of mobile gaming
It's like two titans joining forces to destroy innovation and squeeze every last bit of revenue from the gaming industry. Besides, I'm sure some people will want to play Angry Birds on a console but isn't the game's main appeal that it's a quick little throwaway that you can play on your phone while you're in line at the grocery store? I definitely don't want to pay to play a glorified Flash game on a 42" screen.
