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.

That is so overpriced it made me throw up in my mouth.
That is a bit much for a Free to $5 game. I thought it would be a download. I would pay up to $5 for it on the 3DS, but I will not pay $29.99 to play a phone game on a console. That is crazy. Thanks Activision.
WTF... not only do I not care, but that's a complete ripoff, price wise.
Considering Angry Bird usually retails for as low as a dollar and three dollars for Space, I can't imagine a scenario where I would blow $40 for a game that I'd never want to play on my home consoles. Sadly, Angry Birds is such a big brand that people will still buy it just off name alone.
40 bucks for Angry Birds? I don't know anyone willing to shell out that cash on this franchise. I understand people spending money on plushies but not for games that they probably already own and can be bought for 99 cents each on any App Store.
why would I pay for this?
Wow thats kind of a big price tag for the game I can buy the cheper on my phone
The trilogy is easily $30 too expensive.
I could buy every game, includining space, for less the ten dollars. Total ripoff.
This is stupid.
sounds dumb. Why 40 bucks when on iphone its under ten for those three together?
Obviously a rip-off. You'd had to be a complete idiot to pay for this.
I have this games for $3. No deal for me.
I'd buy it for consoles for $20, but never, ever for $40.
LOL at the price. I hope people don't buy it to let them know it's not ok to charge this much.
I think I'll stay with my PvZ, Peggle, and Zuma.
