It’s been a long road, but at last there is closure in the so-called “violent videogames” case that has been raging for years. In November of last year the EMA (a group representing gaming politically) took the State of California all the way to the Supreme Court for a 2005 law that made it illegal to sell certain games deemed too violent to children. After arguments months ago, the highest court in the USA gave its ruling of 7-2 in favor of the EMA, finding the law unconstitutional...
Rovio's Angry Birds has crossed the arbitrary but nonetheless impressive marker of 250 million downloads across the full range of mobile platforms. That is almost as many people as there are in the continental United States. It's more than 10 times as many copies as Mario 3 ever shifted. 250 million is a lot of downloads is the point here. It kind of makes Angry Birds one of the most prolific games ever made...
Resident Evil Outbreak 1 and 2 were multiplayer cult hits on the PS2. But the next game to bear the ‘Outbreak’ banner will be a social game for cell phones - not exactly what series devotees had expected.
The new game, Resident Evil: Outbreak Survive, will launch on GREE, a Japanese mobile social game platform with millions of subscribers. The third entry in the Outbreak series is expected to release sometime in June, 2011...
The Xperia Play launches in the UK early next month, presumably followed quickly by a launch in the US. N.O.V.A. 2 will be one of the first titles available for the device, and though...
For a company that earned its fame and fortune with an iPhone game, Nintendo's sweeping comments about how the smartphone gaming market could ruin the industry hit close to home. Now Rovio has responded to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime's statements.
Fils-Aime recently said that 99-cent mobile games are making it more difficult to sell quality, $50-$60 software titles, calling...
Rovio, the developer behind the casual mega-hit Angry Birds, has apparently been in discussions with film producers. But could such a simplistic gaming concept actually be turned into a movie? Rooster Teeth's parody trailer says "yes."
In the real-life trailer it is revealed that the Angry Birds are a top secret military weapon, and it's up to a young soldier to sling them into the ominous enemy force - ridiculous-looking pigs...
A benefit to making one of the most successful mobile games on the planet is it gives one the right to predict the death of traditional gaming without being immediately laughed out of the room. Over the weekend, Rovio boss and Angry Bird's lead developer Peter Vesterbacka exercised that right during a panel discussion at the South by Southwest Interactive Conference in Austin, where he insisted console games were 'dying', and mobile games were now the true source of innovation...
Where do you go with a game once it's been downloaded 100 million times, set records on the iPhone and Android, made plans for console releases and been in contact with a movie studio? Angry Birds developer Rovio has put up a huge banner on the game's Facebook page, devoted exclusively to the forthcoming Facebook excursion. All it advertises, though, is that people who "Like" Angry Birds will receive more news when it's available...
