Angry Birds Comes to NetbooksLaptops

first_imgIt’s shaping up to be a big week for everyone’s favorite sling-shooting fowl. Earlier today we took note of the fact that Angry Birds is set to hit the PlayStation Network. Now it seems that the wildly popular mobile gaming phenomenon will also be making its way onto laptops everywhere, courtesy of Intel’s AppUp store. Rovio created an exclusive version of the game, which is available through the Intel store and AppUp storefronts from Best Buy, Best Buy Canada, Future Shop, Dixons, Asus, Croma, HSN, NewEgg, TigerDirect, and more. The app store runs on Windows XP and 7. The PC version of the game is quite a bit pricier than its mobile counterpart, running $9.99 — though AppUp is offering a limited time discount of $4.99. Probably best to get on that, ASAP, considering all of the paid work you’re likely to miss playing the thing.last_img read more
