Angry Birds Coming to the Big (TV) Screen

Pigs have taken your eggs. What better way of getting back at them by firing ‘angry’ birds from a massive slingshot directed straight at them. That’s pretty much it as far as the premise goes and that’s really all you need to know.

PS3 To Outsell Xbox 360

It might be a little hard to believe for die hard Xbox fans but according to EEDAR (Electronic Entertainment Design and Research) analyst Jesse Divnich’s predictions, by 2012 this may well be the case.

Arguments for and against each console seem to envelope many a gamer’s forum. Some differences between the two are slight where others are blindingly obvious such as Blu-Ray vs No Blu-Ray for example but nevertheless, it seems Microsoft and Sony both have reason to be happy for themselves as both have seen good growth in their own unit sales throughout this last year.
