Why do people say things that can be confusing, negative or misunderstood? I remember reading Engadget’s CE-Oh No He Didn’t articles where they would tell of quotes from company leaders or influential people saying things that would make you say “I can’t believe they said that!!!” Their quotes would usually be a quick blurb that was either damaging to their business, ecosystem, consumer perception or just downright disappointing that would later come into question, need further clarification or be completely retracted.
Which brings me to Angry Birds Space….
We recently reported that ABS (Not Anti-lock Brakes System ) was NOT coming to Windows Phone to the dismay of many bloggers and readers/WP fans.
Well, it looks like someone at Rovio misspoke as the CEO has clarified the situation:
Rovio’s CEO has confirmed to Reuters that Latest Angry Birds version called “Angry Bird’s space” is coming to Windows Phone devices. This clarification comes after some reports in tech-media which claimed that, Angry Birds Space is not coming to windows marketplace for windows phones.
(Reuters) – Finnish gaming firm Rovio is working on getting its new Angry Birds Space game to Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform (WP7), its chief executive said on Friday, dismissing earlier media reports which said the top gaming firm was dumping the platform.
“We are working towards getting Angry Birds Space to WP7,” Rovio Chief Executive Mikael Hed told Reuters, but said the launch date was not set.
Great news indeed, hopefully the CEO is to be taken at his word and ABS is indeed coming soon to a WP near you.
