Angry Birds, now on your PC

There’s nowhere you can hide from Angry Birds. After hitting the Web via Chrome last month and televisions through Roku this past week, the ubiquitous game is now available for the PC, too.

You can download the original Angry Birds or Angry Birds Rio for Windows via game-maker Rovio’s Web site for $4.95.

You can also test it out through a free trial.

The games require Windows XP SP2 or later, and the activation key gives a single user three downloads — so you only pay once to put the game on your PC and laptop.

So, if you’re not content with having the game on Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android phones, Android tablets, Windows Phone 7, webOS and the PlayStation, you have yet another option.
