    This reminds me of worms which itself was pretty much a clone of scorched earth. They created Worms 3D and the game lost it charm and fun. For anyone who has originally played the 2D Worms games, you will see how similar it is to Rovio's Angry Birds many years before.

    Yes, when Worms went 3D, I completely lost my interest on it, it was so much better on the 2D scenario.
    I'm going to play it again, thanks for reminding me of that awesome game! On 2D of course.

    You're right, Worms was better 2D...and was pretty much Angry Birds before Angry Birds.

    Angry birds has always been and always will be a total sham. Go play "Crush the castle", its predecessor for a more exciting "Knock things down" experience.

    Angry Birds GO is not working out well for Rovio. People do not want the pay to win model. They should stick with their 99 cents model.

    If the price made any sense, I would point to the royalty fees for using the Star Wars license, but since it is a lot cheaper other platforms, there is no way that I would be paying $40 for a game that I can get for less than five on my tablet.

    All the Angry Bird games are 99 cents on Android and IOS and of course free if you don't might ads.

    I assume that at a buck a pop that Hasbro gets a nice cut off each sale and if you sell 10 million on a phone/tablet, it is a great model. Sony will be lucky to Sell 1000 copies of Angry Birds for $40 bucks.

    I really thought the phone/tablet model would work out great. Developers can charge $1 - $10 bucks for their games and have huge potential audience. They only have to pay for the developer fees and split the money with Apple or Google. Too bad it is going to pay for the item you need to make it through level 1. I am only speaking on Angry Birds Go now.

    I would like to add that I only started this topic hoping people would see it that maybe did not realize this is a $1.00 game that Sony is trying to rape people on. I think Sony will win this generation of console wars but they need to do it the right way.

    What the hell? It's kind of like Call of Duty games. I went to gamestop and found Black Ops 1 and it was 50 bucks, brand new. That came out like 3 years or so ago. STILL 50 DOLLARS!

    Most here knew that the game hitting consoles was shammy as soon as we saw the download size of it last month. Something was just...not right about it.

    It was already this expensive when it came out for PS3 and I don't understand why people pay that much for a port of an android game that costs around 1$. It's just an absurd amount of money, but I guess the devs won't make it cheaper if people keep buying their overpriced games. For me 40$ is already a lot of money for a full game, but it's absolutely ridicolous for an android app for my TV.

    This is 2nd hand info but I did read where the creator of Angry Birds and I guess president of Rovio made a statement a few years back how they will change the video game industry forever. So far, all I have seen is more of the same with Angry Birds Space, Bad Piggies, and more of the catapault type games that use to be around on 8 bit computers. Rovio didn't do anything more than catch lightning in a bottle with cute artwork,

    Popcap is the only casual gaming company that made truly great games and then Electronic Arts bought them and turned them into a pay to win model for all games.

    Yeah I've read that too somewhere. Rovia is just a greedy, money-hungry company that sells remakes of simple games as innovation. I did play some of the angry birds games on Android, but I'm gonna avoid it for any console. I actually want people to boycott it, because it's ridicolous to pay 40$ for such a simple game, but I'm sure there'll be enough people who are gonna buy it anyway.

    Since Angry birds is $40, I really don't mind that I spent $30 paying for Metal Gear: Ground Zeroes. That was actually an incredible demo, but paying $40 for something you could have gotten for free on mobile? Pardon me while I go punch myself in the face for every person that paid that much. I'm assuming a lot of people actually bought the game without realizing how much of a ripoff it was/is.

    Probably had kids have their parents\grandparents buy them this game as a gift not knowing it is a 99 cent game on Android/IOS.

    Oh, no. I hope not, but you're probably right. I wonder how many adults fell victim to that huge overpay thanks to their kids. You don't even have to pay on Android, or at least you didn't when the game first came out.

    It used to be that the free version had ads at the bottom and the 99 cents version didn't. However, if you had a rooted Android, you can run Ad Blocker software that prevents the ads from showing up.

    I do love how much more expensive they are on consoles compared phones. It's funny because people actually buy them. Rovio only need a few people to buy it for it to be worth. A question though seeing as though this is an old topic, has the price been reduced since then or anything?

    I doubt it as there have been very few sales on the PS4 especially compared to the PS3. Thief was $19.99 for one week and then went back up to $49.99 or $59.99. The Angry Birds on the PS3 was also crazy priced. I think this is just a thing where companies feel like they can stick it to casual gamers as they probably feel like most of those people don't understand the difference in play value between Uncharted/Mass Effect/Dark Souls, etc. vs Angry Birds Star Wars. I am guessing maybe wrongly so that people who bought a PS4 to play Angry Birds, Jeopardy, and Wheel of Fortune may not be as technical savvy as hardcore gamers that have a PS4/Xbone and a good PC Rig.

    Eh was 49.99, which is $50, not $40, but it did drop. $19.99 is still too high. Couldn't find anything on sales beyond something back in april laughing at 2200 suckers.
