Angry Birds at 500 million downloads

Try as you might, there’s no stopping Rovio’s Angry Birds mania. The looney birds vs pigs franchise has now reached half a billion downloads. That’s across Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio, then. Nuts!

The games can of course be found anywhere and everywhere these days, iOS, Android, WP7, PC and Mac among them.

The 500 million figure is especially astonishing though when considering that it was at 250 million just some months ago.

Rovio has said it aims to become the “first entertainment brand with a billion fans”; half way there?
