Are you one of those people who complains about how App Store pricing has ruining many a gaming company's business model? If you are, Angry Birds developer Rovio has a solution for you: they'll be releasing a retail edition of three Angry Birds games later this year.
The retail version, which is headed to the Nintendo 3DS, the PS3, and the Xbox 360, will include the original Angry Birds game, along with Angry Birds Seasons and movie tie-in Angry Birds Rio. According to Petri Jarvilehto, Rovio's Executive Vice President of Games, the disc- and cartridge-based version of the game will be "the ultimate collector's edition", featuring "new cinematics (and) extras". Further, graphics for all three games will be "uprezzed and re-treated for the high-resolution and big screen."
There's no word yet on price or exact street date -- or, for that matter, how the retail version will compete with people's dollars for games that are available for 99 cents (if not free) -- but anyone excited for this has been living under a rock for a few years Rovio has said the game will feature Kinect and PlayStation Move support.
