One of the best selling games on the Apple iTunes App Store is apparently making the move to console, according to an admission from its developer to The Sun.

Speaking to the UK newspaper, Rovio co-founder Joe Wee stated that the studio is “also releasing [Angry Birds] on Nintendo DS, Sony PSP and PS3”. A digital release on PSN will presumably be its route to PS3.

Angry Birds is a catapult shooter that requires players on iPhone to decide on the trajectory and power of a bird flung from a catapult toward an array of structures. The idea is to destroy the inhabitants in a set number of turns.

The game costs just 59p on iTunes (the iPad version costs £4.99) and has to date made in the region of £2m for Rovia. It has topped both the US and US charts.

“When it was released last December Angry Birds made a slow start but as word got round, everyone's gone crazy for it,” Wee stated. “You hear the phrase 'just one more go' used a lot in video games but it definitely applies to Angry Birds.”
