Angry Birds crashing into PSP, PS3 this week

The uber-popular mobile game is finally coming to consoles, with the PlayStation Network getting first dibs. It'll be interesting to see how it looks on a 58-inch HDTV.

The Angry Birds, and their hated egg-stealing pigs, are coming to the PlayStation Network this week, according to Sony's official PlayStation blog, which means they're also coming to the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3 consoles.

The insanely popular game--which is currently available for the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, had been said to be heading to consoles , and it seemed like a no-brainer to send them there.

Rovio's title will be downloadable for the PSP and likely the PS3, as most (but not all) of the "mini" games work on both. No word on pricing yet, but the iOS version is 99 cents, or $4.99 for the iPad version. The Android version is free , but ad-supported.

The PlayStation version will offer 63 levels of the game, and will likely include the Golden Egg hidden levels. What's unknown is if it will include the Great Eagle feature that the latest update received. It's a good update that makes the game far more replayable by rewarding players for replaying all the old levels with different objectives. This blogger is hooked.
