Angry Birds is the best-selling PSN game


After being released on January 4 of this year, Angry Birds has already surpassed other popular games such as Joe danger, Flower, Battlefield 1943, and Mortal Kombat 2 (Keep in mind that MK2 came out in April 2007. Thats more than a 3 year advantage!) to claim the crown of most popular PSN game. But beware, before you run out and pay 4X the price of the iPhone version, read some reviews of the game, because from what I’ve read it seems like they made the game for the psp and then ported that over to the ps3 instead of the other way around.

    Flower and Shatter should be the best selling games on psn, flower is one of the best games on the system imo.

    Angry Birds is just annoying. I really can’t believe so many people pay for it.

    You can find better games (FREE) of the same genre on a number of websites.

    Yes, Angry Birds is a dumb game, with dozens of free Flash alternatives, that sells well for some weird mass market reason.

    Hopefully, tomorrow’s PSN Clash of Heroes will be amazing.

    You guys are always hating on Angry Birds which is ironic since it’s the best selling PSN game, lol. At one point it was one of the most profitable apps in the app store if I’m not mistaking. Sometimes simple is nice. I purchased it on the iPhone and the PS3. I’ve also played it on Android.

    I don’t think it’s the best game on the PSN, not even close. It just has a huge fan base. From little kids to adults. It’s actually quite simple and genius.

    Too hard and frustrating for some of you?

    That’s not my issue.

    If you go to any decent Flash game website you’ll see the genre goes back many many years and there are already some very impressing, awesome games, for free.

    I think it’s unfair to the people who created those games.

    It’s free on Android. Yet, I chose to purchase it on the iPhone and PSN. I’ll agree that there are awesome Flash games out there that are pretty much equivalent, maybe even better in some aspects. Actually, I’m a huge fan of Flash of games. How do you think I made it through high school? Haha. But yeah, maybe those developing free flash games should drop it on the PSN or iPhone.

    How am I suppose to play a flash game when I’m on a three hour road trip? Or sitting at the doctors office for 45 minutes? Well, there are options available now, such as Kongregate on Android. But until now, you’ve pretty much needed a computer.

    My god, is it possible that Angry Birds is the best-seller on PSN? I find that totally incredible. Did Liz Lemon suddenly start playing the PS3? Or did everyone hand over their credit cards to their six year olds?
