Boxed title Angry Birds Trilogy sells 1m at retail; Wii and Wii U release planned

The Activision-published Angry Birds Trilogy has passed 1m unit sales at retail.

There are two ways to interpret that stat. On the one hand, many scoffed at the idea of selling games that can be downloaded for 69p on smartphone at a far higher RRP on a disc.

On that basis 1m sales seems pretty impressive.

The other side of the coin, of course, is that the digital version of the game has sold well in excess of HALF A BILLION copies. On that basis the comparison is less kind.

Angry Birds Trilogy is available on Xbox 360 and PS3, and supports both Kinect and PlayStation Move. A 3DS version is also available.

Activision has also confirmed a release for both Wii and Wii U some time in 2013.

Angry Birds’ proven formula for fun and addicting gameplay translated perfectly to the big screen and the consumer response has been overwhelming,” Activision’s VP of sales and marketing Jennifer Mirabelli stated.
