The idea of flinging two-dimensional birds at towers full of pigs likely won’t appeal to hardcore console gamers, but more casual Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo 3DS owners have something to look forward to this holiday season. Rovio on Wednesday teased its upcoming console title “Angry Birds Trilogy,” which IGN reports will launch in the fourth quarter this year. While the mobile gaming market clearly shows promise, it remains minuscule compared to the console gaming industry. To put the two in perspective, Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise made the company $106 million in all of 2011; when Activision launched Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 last year, it pulled in more than $1 billion in just 17 days. As such, it is understandable that Rovio would want to explore console gaming as it looks to further capitalize on its popular Angry Birds series.
