All we need is love. That four letter word comes in different faces, places, shapes and sizes. One such symbol comes this Valentines day in the form of one popular game.

You read it right. Because the popular game that blazed through your mobile phones and tabs is coming to Facebook this coming Feb 14. Make way, the Angry Birds is hitting the social networking scene.

A lot of individuals love this game and it’s quite fitting that Rovio is choosing the date to launch its popular game on Facebook. The company announced that the game has been downloaded more than half a billion times. Data was collated and ended last November.

The data also shows that the game is being played up to a total of 300 million minutes per day. If we convert it to playing years, that would be equal to 200,000 years.

Now, the ever so popular game is invading Facebook. Rovio is inviting Angry Birds fanatics and those who want to jump in the bandwagon in an event entitled, “Nothing says ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ like competitive pig-popping among friends!” Angry Birds can be found in Facebook here.

So get your fingers ready and join the event.

Angry Birds now available in RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook

Research In Motion, the maker of BlackBerry, finally announced Wednesday that Angry Birds will now be available in their PlayBook device.

Due to their less-than-stellar sales of the PlayBook which sold less than a million units, RIM is slowly changing its course and moving away from being perceived as business-focused and is entering the consumer arena. The popular game from Rovio Entertainment and its sequels, Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Seasons, may help shift that image.

The company also admits that a they still have a high inventory of the product which means that they have to do more legwork in terms of promotional activities. The delay of the release of the second version of the device’s OS (to be released on February) was also partly to blame.

All three versions of the game are available in the BlackBerry App World at $4.99 each. The games are not yet available for Blackberry smartphones though as these run on a different and older operating system.
