Angry Birds Trilogy
Angry Birds Trilogy Coming to Xbox 360 With Kinect Support
Written By
View author's profile

You'd be forgiven for thinking that were Angry Birds to come to Xbox 360, it'd be as a downloadable title on the Xbox Live Arcade, but apparently that won't be the case, as developer Rovio and publisher Activision are bringing Angry Birds Trilogy to Xbox 360 as an "ultimate collector's edition" compendium on a disc.

"Built from the ground up" for HDTVs, according to Rovio's Executive VP of Games, Petri Järvilehto, Angry Birds Trilogy will bring together the original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio, with individual leaderboards for each level. No mention has yet been made of the free level packs brought to the iOS and Android releases.

"You can think of the game as the ultimate collector’s edition," Järvilehto stated. "There are new cinematics, extras and other entertaining content. In addition all of the existing material has been uprezzed and re-treated for the high-resolution and big screen."

That's not all though. "The backgrounds have been animated, we've added lighting modes, reactive backgrounds, the list goes on and on," Järvilehto added. "We believe that there are a lot of people on the consoles who appreciate a great casual game play experience. This is a game that resonates across a wide audience on many platforms."

Angry Birds Trilogy will be coming to Xbox 360 this holiday, complete with Kinect support and HD visuals.

Thik it would have been better to relaese this as an XBLA Title without the Kinect!

I would have bought this on XBLA but not as a retail game.....think they are making a massive mistake!

Trilogy? There's four games but it looks like Space isn't included :-(
I bet it'll be DLC later on.

New cinematics? Yeeeesssss!!! Now they can expand on the back story - very important for a narrative driven game

Seriously tho, I can't see myself playing this at home when I have other full size games to play

Wait, didn't the CEO of Rovio say "console games are dying"? And then this is released as a RETAIL game, no less. I am at a loss for words.

Angry Birds is all well good on mobile devices. But really? On the Xbox why would i play this game when I have so many more games, that are actually way better than this to play? The only reason it has become so popular was because it is a mobile game.

Also, they will charge at least 800 points for the trilogy, which is roughly £7. However i can get them all on the Iphone for less than £3. HD remastered or not it seems a little desperate.

wtf! Another game that slaps the kinect sticker on a game that some of us might enjoy. Microsoft are trying my patience. I was hoping for this for xbla, to be able to play with my controller. Is that asking too much?

@5 But what all have you done. Have you played Angry Birds Space with the gravity implementation or Angry Birds Seasons with underwater physics. I think both of those definitely added a nice change of pace.

Screw making this game into a XBLarcade title! I want to play angry birds with 1000G and many new DLC levels on the way. A Retail Angry Birds is a great idea. Yeah, 1000G Angry Bird game with lots of content is the way to go.

Angry Birds HD will cost $60, Angry Birds HD Collectors Edition will come with Angry Birds Space as Day 1 DLC for $120. Kinect will "enhance" the Angry Birds experience like never before. Moving your hand and pulling a slingshot down and releasing it is not only innovative, but will probably be unresponsive. Consumers can expect the same quality game experience that is always delivered by Activision. (By the way, if you didn't already figure it out, I was using sarcasm).

Then don't buy the fu*king thing number 23. I for one can't wait, everybody needs to stop bitching. This is going to be a great game, and if you don't want to play it for having a tight wallet, wait for the stupid game to go on sale then. Shit, I can't wait and I'm glad it is going to be a badass retail game.

This is coming from a guy who likes Justin Bieber. In the other forum you said." Justin Bieber isn't that bad of a kid, his music is ok and people need to lay off." LMFAO REALLY? I never heard somebody sticking up for that kid in my life! That slingshot joke wasn't funny. You supsecting every body to be ROFL?
On Topic. . .
Knowing Activision is making this, you can suspect a lot of content to mess around with.

@27 That's why I really like Angry Birds. I remember reading a little about Rovio not too long before Angry Birds came out. Probably an interview. Anyways they said they are going the market Angry Birds to death. Which I strongly believe is a key reason why some games (even bad) are successful and some games (even good)are failures. It's all about how it is marketed

the point of angry birds is it's something to play on the go when your bored say whan your on a train, or in a lecture, or ment to be working :D it's not really what i'd call a AAA title capable of giving the same ammount of entertainment on a full screen TV like COD, Halo and Gears can so doesn't need a AAA pricetag when in most cases it can be downloaded for free or at most £1.50

@ #30: Can't tell if trolling or just stupid. In case it's the latter, the obvious implication is that #2 couldn't think of any current systems/platforms that Angry Birds isn't on. I'm fairly certain that the Nintendo DS and Wii and Sony Vita and PSP don't have ports of AB. Yeah, the DS, Wii, and PSP are outgoing platforms to a greater or lesser extent, but games are still being developed and released for them.

OT: I actually just started playing the original Angry Birds, and it's a really fun diversion. Moreover, it's nice to play games without having to think about achievements and trophies. I'm unsure about this version, though I know my girlfriend would love to share in the experience.

Crush the Castle 2 came out earlier, is so much superior and far less frustrating.

That game should be as famous as Angry Birds.

I just got it for $0.99 on my WP7... My mind is open until I see the price tag (I would like it but not for more than $10 - $15)

and at #3 & #4 - "complete with Kinect support" - I assume this means you do not need a Kinect but if you do have one you can use it.

@16 you read the article, right? They specifically said it would be on disc, and not XBLA!!

This disc'll have to be seriously cheap to get sales; you can buy all the games on iPhone for a couple of quid!!

It's about time. I'm ready to pick this up now! Not sure how this will play out since the Kinect will be used. If it's any bit responsive like Fruit ninja Kinect, this will be good. Also, I hope I can sit down and just move my hand to play this. Standing up will be tiresome.
