Roku released the Roku 2, which includes some casual games.

The new line, priced from $59.99, features games such as Angry Birds and also has new channels for Facebook, AOL HD and FOXNews.com.

The new Roku, like Apple TV, supports up to 1080p HD video on its $79.99 and $99.99 models.

The devices are scheduled to hit the market by the end of July. A bundle that includes the Roku game remote and a 2GB MicroSD card is expected to launch in the coming weeks and will likely retail for $29.99 on the manufacturer’s Web site.
