I love how it's cheapest on 3DS and most expensive on Wii U.

I did enjoy the 3DS Angry Birds Trilogy, bought it for $20. Doubt I'll buy this unless I get it cheap or has lot's of stages.

Wii U doesn't get shafted this time, j/k.
Seriously, prices aside, they're even trying to sell physical copies?

Edit: I just saw they're charging $50 for the WiiU version, oh boy.

Guys Angry Birds Trilogy is the best selling 3rd party game on the 3DS, despite its insane price tag. Weirdly enough these overpriced versions sell pretty well.

What a lineup, saleswise, for 3DS this end of the year:

Pokémon X & Y
Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
Mario Party 3DS
Sonic Lost World
Angry Birds Star Wars

The big guns, I can't contain them

What's horrible is that I'm not joking in putting it in there. I mean, not completely :lol

More seriously: why's 39.99 on Vita? And why is 49.99 on Wii U.
