    Angry Birds Star Wars $40! You have to be kidding me!

    Anyone else think Angry Birds Star Wars for $40 is more than highway robbery?

    If Sony offered the whole Angry Birds Collection with a new Angry Birds Exclusive to the PS4 and it was $10, I am not really sure if I would purchase it. These are 99 cent games for phones/tablets. I don't see how the console adds anything to a game that was designed for a touch screen interface and is very similar to computer games I played in the early 1980s!

    Is anyone actually buying Angry Birds for $40 for the PS4?

    Wow. That is an expensive Angry Bird game. I think they think that since it's Star Wars, people will be more likely to spend more on it. And seeing how popular Angry Birds is, they definetely went ahead and slapped a high price on it. I'm not buying it. I'll wait until it drops to a few bucks lol!

    Yes, it's definitely overpriced. Since it's a well-known game nowadays, I believe they took advantage of it to make it that expensive.
    I won't pay that for a angry birds game, that's for sure.

    Wait? What! I was already annoyed about the size of the game and now you're trying to tell me that somehow, Angry Birds. Freakin' Angry Birds is $40?! That is a cash grab and a ridiculous one that that. I don't even think that the fact that this is Angry Birds is what is raising the price, it's the fact that it's using the name Star Wars.

    On my tablet, I can get it with ads for free and I think it costs like $3.99 for the full game and to be honest that is a phone/tablet game in design.

    Unfortunately, it looks like Sony is trying to rape people buy throwing in two popular items in "Angry Birds" and "Star Wars."

    I guess if people are stupid enough to buy it but I have to believe there are going to be people that bought it and thinking why did I just pay $40 bucks for a phone game?

    Who knows. I am hoping not enough people have been dumb enough to buy it to find out.

    Look at the reviews on Amazon for Angry Birds Star Wars which is the same version that is 99 cents on Google Play or ITunes:

    It wont let me post links until I have 30 posts but do a Amazon search for Angry Birds Star Wars for PS4 and you will see all the one star reviews from people bitching about a 99 cent game being $40 bucks.

    These type of money grabs really put Sony in a bad light and this is a company that lost their dominant electronic market to Samsung and other companies. Another crap move is not letting the PS4 app run on the Samsung Galaxy series. I know the Galaxy S3 sold over 10 million so to ignore that percentage of the market is stupid. I run their app on my Nexus and it really is nothing special but it should run on competing models of smart phones. Sony has not ever made a good smart phone to my knowledge.

    HOLY SMOKES that is heinous! Who in the world would spend 40 dollars on a game that is about as deep as any browser flash game? I feel like they just took a giant dump on themselves by pricing it so stupidly.

    Older folks will get it for their grandkids because Angry Birds is popular and all of that. It really is a rip off at $40 and the size of it, they most likely could've put all games in the series on the disc or download with the extra levels and most likely still not hit the $40 mark.

    ...sit and wait for the Sith Zombies DLC.

    I believe the original Angry Birds was $5.99 on the ps3. I did not know until looking but they are selling the Star Wars version on the PS3 also for $40.

    I swear between getting released on mobile and reaching 8th generation consoles Angry Birds befriended a cricket, told lies, ran with a bad crowd, got swallowed by whale, had a revelation, and got its wish of becoming a real game worth $40+ and filling out to 1.5GB.

    Oh Rovio, what will you do next with Angry Birds to make it even more scamlicious. I'm calling Angry Birds Indiana Jones or Angry Birds DC Comics.

    I wonder what the sales numbers look like. Can't image they would be able to sell many at that price point however I remember them advertising the crap out of this game.

    I know the owner of Rovio has ego issues as he stated that they are changing video games forever. This is ludicrous. I admit that I found the original Angry Birds entertaining for 99 cents but it reminded me so much of a catapult game I played in the early 80s on my home computer. It really is nothing new other than a lot of people think the birds are cute so they sell lots of angry bird plush dolls and pillows. I have not seen anything even close to the lightning in the bottle that was angry birds. I just wonder how much money Rovio gets and Sony gets on each $40 purchase which I still hope not many people have bought.

    Releasing a flash/browser-style game on smartphones and making it so that everyone would need to sell their games for peanuts to move millions and millions isn't changing video games forever, though. They make it seem like they've released a game that is different from person to person, is the game that person wants most, and released it for peanuts.

    The owner obviously has problems fitting in a room with his ego. If Rovio (Angry Birds) is a video game revolution then I want out

    I'll give them a slim bit of a benefit of the doubt that Hed and company have some plan to make Angry Birds into an actual revolution.

    Well you have to give it something. It might actually do something totally outside the box and not just a kart racing game which has been done several times over. They might change it up, make Angry Birds 3D and make it a first person...physics game.
