Angry Birds downloaded over 350 million times


Angry Birds has surpassed 350 million downloads, according to publisher Rovio's general manager Andrew Stalbow. Speaking with VentureBeat, the executive claims that mobile device users play the game for more than 300 million minutes each day collectively.

It's worth mentioning that not all those downloads were purchased, as the game has been gratis on several occasions. Of course, those freebie figures likely pale in comparison to the revenue generated across mobile and console platforms from people willing to pay for flinging fowl.

Rovio is currently in a round of funding that is rumored to value the company at over $1.2 billion, as the Angry Birds build a cross-media empire.
