Amazon To Exclusively Offer Angry Birds Rio for Android
When the multi-platform game Angry Birds launched on the Android platform the successful game was offered for free and subsequent versions and updates have also been free via hitting up the Android Market, but not with Angry Birds Rio apparently.
Here’s what the Amazon Blog says…” More traffic, more customers! The Angry Birds franchise has been downloaded over 100 million times — the Android installed base is over 30 million. When we launch the Amazon Appstore, we will be teaming with Rovio to drive those customers to the store – which means more traffic to the Amazon Appstore and more customers for you.”
But what does that mean to the everyday Android user that looks forward to the latest Angry Birds on Android? Does this mean Angry Birds will no longer be free to the Android faithful, and what about the Android Market surely the game has to come to the official place for grabbing Android apps sooner or later?
Will you be getting your fix of Angry Birds for your Android device if the only way to get it is to purchase it from the Amazon Appstore, or will you simply forget about Angry Birds and move onto some other free mobile game?
