Angry Birds Trilogy hits consoles in HD (and 3D) for a pretty penny

Remember that game you paid a buck for and played for, oh, I don't know, 50-some hours? Well, now you can have that same game (plus two more and a few exclusive levels) for $40 on your Xbox 360 or PS3 and $30 on your 3DS. These three games would cost a collective $10 (at most) on your iPad or Android tablet. Are we missing something here?

Through Activision, Rovio has released Angry Birds Trilogy--a collection of the original game, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio--to the hottest game consoles for a pretty premium price. It promises that features like 1080p HD graphics on Xbox 360 or PS3, stereoscopic 3D visuals on 3DS and exclusive animated cuts scenes will entice you to whip out the credit card.

Oh, and don't forget about the interactive backgrounds, surround sound support, new bird biographies, concept art, character sketches and leaderboard support. And we'd be remiss not to mention that Angry Birds Trilogy supports the Kinect for Xbox 360, the Move controller for PS3 and StreetPass for the 3DS.

Are you convinced yet? Aw, who are we kidding--you're already on Amazon in another browser tab. Nothing we say about owning these games on your iPad, Android tablet, Mac or PC for less than half the cost would sway you. You vote with your dollar, after all.
