Angry Birds Comes Free to PC

You may have heard of the immensely popular game Angry Birds, but most likely haven’t played it because you do not own a compatible device. Now the physics-based game where the player launches birds against a castle of pigs can be played on a desktop computer as the PC version is free for a limited time though a special offer from Intel AppUp Center and Best Buy.

To get your free copy of Angry Birds for Windows, you need to download the AppUp Center client, Intel’s answer to Apple’s App Store for OS X computers, from Best Buy’s website. Once installed, you need to register for an account and indicate that you live in the United States (even if you do not). Then log into the AppUp and see that the US$4.99 fee for Angry Birds is waived.

If you already have the AppUp Center, you need to uninstall and reinstall using the Best Buy link, then register for a new account.

If you decide to skip on this offer, you need to know that Angry Birds will also come to Facebook soon, so there is no excuse for you not to play it.
