Fact: Angry Birds is lighting up mobile touch screens, treating download records like rickety crates of thieving pigs. Not a fact: Angry Birds is the most downloaded game in PSN history.
Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian issued a correction to a previous report claiming Angry Birds to be the most downloaded PSN game of all time. Sebastian clarifies that Angry Birds was in fact “the most downloaded paid game through the PSN for January and February 2011.”
Falling short of the PSN crown shouldn’t dampen Rovio’s spirits. Angry Birds has reportedly raked in a staggering $70 million in revenue, tallying more than 100 million downloads across mobile platforms.
