If you take a look at the top 200 grossing apps in all categories for the iPhone you see Angry Birds Space on the top position. Draw Something has been there for quite some time (35 days) and now they are taken down by the new Angry Birds (which was downloaded 10 million times in 3 days.. Total earnings with such an amount are: euh.. 10 million in 3 days. Which is a lot, even for Draw Something standards.
BUT this is not entirely true because the Draw Something ‘Free’ Version (with apparantly a lot of ingame selling) is at the 6th place. Maybe the two combined are still number #1? Maybe the Angry Birds app will go down much faster then the ‘climbing’ draw something? we’ll see what happends. It’s a funny battle though.
It was reported in November of last year that Zynga had attempted to purchase Rovio for $2.25B, and now we can clearly see why. While Rovio made quite a few games before Angry Birds but hasn’t since. Once it does it will be a clear competitor and threat to Zynga’s social gaming kingdom.
I bet that OMGPOP was glad that Angry Birds Space launched after its sale went through, as the top grossing spot might have become a bargaining chip to bring down its price.
