Angry Birds: Star Wars Finds the Force on PlayStation 3 and Vita

Angry Birds: Star Wars, Rovio and LucasArts’ license to print money, is set to step away from the Pork Side of mobiles and tablets, and fly onto the PlayStation 3 and Vita this fall. The title – which popped up on Amazon overnight – will catapult its way onto a console near you on 29th October in North America and 1st November in Europe.

The re-release will boast enhanced visuals, 20 exclusive levels, PlayStation Move compatibility, and new two-player co-operative and four-player competitive modes. If all of that has left you in a flap, we should probably add that publisher Activision’s charging a whopping $39.99 for the port. Yeah, we thought that that would suck the wind out of your wings.

Wow, "let's make as much money as possible before the novelty runs out!"

Jokes aside, I can't see the point of playing this on the big screen, but the Vita port might be interesting.

But what really doesn't make no sense AT ALL is selling this in a plastic box at a high price point as if it was a full-fledged gaming experience. This is meant to be a cheap time killer you download for a couple of bucks on your phone/portable system (which is perfectly all right by me). What annoys me is trying to turn this into more than it really is.

@Snorky It's ridiculous, isn't it? I mean, $10 would be bad, but I could just about understand that. $40 is ridiculous. The thing is, they charged the same for the Angry Birds Trilogy — and it sold really well!

My parents got my brother the 3DS collection. I facepalmed so hard on Christmas day. What a waste of money.

Crazy. I mean, I downloaded it for free this past week (they were running a one day special).

What's actually crazy about the pricing, besides it being crazy in it's own right, is that I think the "trilogy" 3-games-1 package is going for $30, so how can they make 1 game $40?

OTOH, GoW 3 was $60 and it lasted about 6 hours (and don't even get me started on the 20 minute PS2 launch title The Bouncer, or ZoE which I think was 3 hours) so from a purely $1 per hour perspective people may get their money's worth.

And if you're a Star Wars AND Angry Birds fan this is actually a good game.

But yeah even with all that this should still be a $10 DL. (Though it probably wouldn't fit on the Wiiware block limit.)
