This just in: people like Angry Birds. In a new blog post on developer Rovio's site, the studio announces that its latest Angry Birds jam, Angry Birds Space [$.99 / HD], has hit 50 million downloads within 35 days. Rovio says that this is the "fastest growing mobile game yet," and it is shattering all of the studio's previous records. No-one could have predicted this. No-one.

In all seriousness, though, Space is easily the best entry in the franchise so far, so we're guessing the download numbers are only going to get crazier as the game receives more support down the line. And speaking of that actually, Rovio teased something interesting in the post: a new "bigger" thing is on the way.

    Keep in mind that Rovio's "50 million downloads" include IAP downlaods for levels that were free to play on previous Angry Birds games.  And rest assured that the "new, bigger thing" will cost you money.

    Birds seems to be a hot topic. Where I live I would like to take pictures of birds and sell them over the net. There are numerous species of birds in the Turks and Caicos, Islands.
