You may remember that a while back, there was a pretty big mess involving the minis version of Angry Birds. Rovio reclaimed the publishing rights, and as such put a new version on the store, feature a whole host of notable performance increases. Unfortunately, previous purchasers of the game weren’t able to download this new version, and were unfortunately stuck with their significantly worse version of the game. Rovio has updated us on the situation, and it appears that although it isn’t possible to offer the new version to previous purchasers, there is an arrangement in place for you poor unfortunate souls.
Ville Heijari, VP of Franchise Development for Rovio told us that;
…anyone who purchased the older version can contact PSN customer service directly. PSN customer service will check your account to verify the purchase, and provide you with a voucher to download the new version.
That seems a pretty clear cut way of getting around this whole mess, and you’ll receive your new version of Angry Birds by going through this process. For American customers, you can contact the PSN customer service at http://us.playstation.com/support/ask/. Just jump through the hoops, and you should be flinging small creatures at structures with a decent framerate before you know it.
