Angry Birds Scores A New Record With Over 6,500,000 Christmas Day Downloads
Rovio Mobile’s Ville Heijari has told AllThingsD that the total number of downloads for their three games i.e Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio, touched a whopping 6.5 million on Christmas Day setting a new record for the multi-platform smashing hit franchise. Even more interesting to note is that this number approximately equals the total number of smartphone activations to have happened over Christmas.
Rovio’s representative said:
“We’re really excited to have such a massive number of new people get acquainted with Angry Birds over the holidays — we have exciting new releases lined up for 2012, and can’t wait to introduce them to the public.”
Last year, the company had recorded around 2 million Angry Birds downloads across iOS and Android on Christmas Day. According to another report, more than a billion mobile programs were downloaded during the final week of 2011 which included a mix of paid and free downloads across major smartphone platforms.
