REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

Rovio: Angry Birds Audience Rivals That Of Twitter

Posted on Wednesday, January 22 @ 05:25:46 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Angry Birds
 developer Rovio has spoken out to tout the massive success its bird-launching game has been for the company. 

According to the studio, the monthly player count is up to 200 million, which, believe it or not, is actually the same size as Twitter's audience. Not only that, but the insanely popular game has been downloaded over two billion times.

During the Pocket Gamer Connects conference, Rovio CMO Peter Vesterbacka had the following to say: 

If you look at Rovio and what we've done over four years, there are now two billion copies of Angry Birds out there.

Download figures tell you nothing about engagement, but we still have 200 million people playing Angry Birds every month, the size of the Twitter audience.

Do you think the Angry Birds franchise will be around for a long time, or will it end up proving to be nothing more than a highly successful fad that dies out in a few years' time?
