Meanwhile, the Angry Birds phenomenon rolls along, with the Guardian reporting the game has been downloaded 500 million times. "This is a fantastic landmark achievement for us, and we're extremely delighted to see such an incredible amount of people enjoying our games," said Mikael Hed, chief executive at Rovio, debatably using the plural there, given the success of its back catalog.
Rovio, beyond product tie-ins, is currently working on an Angry Birds movie and hoping to really fling foul amounts of cash into corporate coffers when it goes public next year.
