The creators of the popular game Angry Birds are angry at Microsoft. How to get those Birds, who aren't very happy already, even angrier? By stating that a version of the game will be available for Windows Phone 7.
Angry Birds has obtained many fans in a short time. The game is available for the iPhone and for Android-driven handsets. Goal is to shoot an Angry Bird with a catapult, and hit small pigs with it. Who hits, gets points. The game is, according to many, very addictive. We've seen young and old people having fun with the Birds.
Icon on the website of Microsoft
Microsoft obviously wants such a popular game to come to its new platform Windows Phone 7. Therefore, the company placed to logo of Angry Birds on the Windows Phone 7 markting website. Rovio, the company behind Angry Birds, did not quite like that. In plain words, the company explained its position: "We have not committed to doing a Windows Phone 7 version. Microsoft put the Angry Birds icon on their site without our permission".
This fight is probably to be continued. We, being Angry Birds fans, do not hope that this quarrel will delay a possible advent of the game to Windows.Deze ruzie wordt ongetwijfeld vervolgd. Wij, als
Angry Birds-fans, hopen niet dat deze rel een eventuele komst van het spel naar het nieuwe besturingssyteem van Windows vertraagt.
