There are some gamers (you know who you are) who aren't interested in the latest and greatest; who don't care about Battlefield 4 or Watch Dogs or Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag.

Luckily, we've finally heard about the best game you could ever hope for. Coming to all consoles this fall is Angry Birds: Star Wars...

Angry Birds, as I'm sure many of you know, is the incredibly popular mobile game, with a very simple premise (as all the best ones do). All you do is try and break down the houses of these poor little piggies by crashing birds into them.

Despite being so simple, the gameplay and levels were well designed enough that the game became a hit, and is still one of the best selling games on iOS and Android. This fall, Rovio are aiming to release the newest game on all current gen consoles (including on PS Vita and 3DS).

Naturally the port comes with a load of upgrades, such as new levels and improved features. Multiplayer is also being added, allowing either two player co-operative play or a four player competitive mode. A graphics upgrade and a block of achievements will be included, to make console players feel right at home.

This isn't the first Angry Birds to be on console, with the Angry Birds Trilogy coming out last year and selling over 1 million units - successful enough that they want to continue releasing for current consoles.

Do any of you guys prefer more casual games like Angry Birds, or are you strictly a AAA gamer? How well do you think the Star Wars version holds up? Tell us below!

This is so much better on a tablet or a smartphone, doesn't need to be released on a console

Never played it on PS move but I suppose it was inevitable that these types of games would make the transition to console.

I am not interested in the "latest and greatest", but I'm not interested in Angry Birds either o_o
There are far more categories than only "casual" and "AAA" gamers.

I agree. It's Angry Birds this, Angry Birds that. It's annoying when you see something related to Angry Birds, because it's simply just unoriginal and is in pretty much the same scenario is CoD imo; too many people like it, so they just keep dishing out more and more for them. Oh well, that's the way games are today.

Why would someone would want to play basically a 'mobile' game in a console again?

I was wrong , they don't have this listed on the Oyua site. I'm guessing you could sideload it ? I think Ouya has a closed marketplace and google play is different. Confusing really isn't it and as you said Ouya is a console ;o)

I think that it could be good on a portable console like psvita or 3ds, but why play it on a home console?
