    Default Rovio Sells 50 Million Copies of Angry Birds Space Within Six Weeks


    If you thought Angry Birds was a top hit in the App Store, then check out Angry Birds Space. Rovio reports that it has sold over 50 million copies of the application since its release less than six weeks ago (the record was hit after 35 days), making Angry Birds Space the single fastest-growing mobile game ever. (Are you surprised?)

    The Angry Birds Space game is a fun game; even people who have openly stated they hated Angry Birds have admitted their liking to Angry Birds Space. The anti-gravity game play makes for a fun, out-of-this-world challenge, and picking up a game for just 99 is always a steal.

    Angry Birds Space made it to the top of our staff favorites thread for a number of our staff members. In addition to this, Angry Birds Space continues to be the number one game in the App Store, as indicated by the 'Top 25' tab from directly within the App Store application. The popularity of the game has simply blasted off (no pun intended) from its release, however since Rovio was working directly with NASA to create this game, we expected nothing less than quality from it.

    Angry Birds Space came with a disappointingly small amount of levels upon its release, however just this week it was updated with ten new difficult space levels and the ability to get a free daily Space Eagle in addition to the free 20 Space Eagles it gave you from the update.

    Angry Birds Space is available for iOS, Android, Mac OS X, and Windows. If you haven't already joined the 50 million other people playing Angry Birds Space, you can learn more about it from this link.

    50 million , piracy doesn't equate to lost sales generally
