Samsung Smart TVs are now the most expensive way to play Angry Birds

Jordan Mallory

We can't really think of an honest reason why Rovio wouldn't port Angry Birds to something even halfway capable of supporting the game, so excuse us for not being completely surprised by hearing that the now-iconic mobile title has been ported to Samsung's latest line of "Smart" televisions, which support gesture-based input.

Similar to the forthcoming Kinect and Move-enabled versions, the Smart TV release of Angry Birds has the player controlling the slingshot's aim and tension via gesture commands. Unlike those versions, however, the Smart TV release requires ... a Smart TV, which costs about two thousand dollars. We can't really recommend buying one specifically for Angry Birds, but if you're going to get one anyway, you may as well drastically under-utilize it with a port of a phone game.
