I dont think the price displayed ever changed from 3.49, it was listed as that at 00:10 last night. I think they are beinv hit hard so need to get more hamsters on wheels in the server room-keep trying!

Why is this offer not expired its not FREE anymore?

i just downloaded it for free. once my registration completed it said enjoy your free download of angry birds which you can find in the my apps section - or something to that effect.

if you want to play it, you have to reduce your screen resolution to a maximum of 1024x1024

tried that still didnt work..

Just managed to get it. Was showing 14,800 odd downloads when I grabbed it but I'm not sure if that was overall or part of the deal.

My screen is set to 1680x1050 and it looked fine here. What is the deal with the Intel AppUp software. Have they designed it to be like Steam/App Store for Notebooks? If I install and log in on another machine then I guess I can play the game on there too?

Oops my fault did not no it only shows up if you register thanks op.

Looks like the deal is for new subscriptions.
I had not used the Intel AppUp, so downloaded and subscribed.
Once I selected Angry Birds it said to enjoy the free download from Dixons.


Brilliant, just downloaded and played. Works fine at 1280x1024 for me.

Just to confirm you have to download the program, install and then register. You get a popup saying your free download has been added to your app. You then go to the program and can download angry birds from the My apps tab for free. Works great.

Yup I got it too, just have to register first then its added to your myapps page to download.
thats my day's productivity killed

Was totally hooked on this for a while.....

Not supported on Vista? How rubbish!!!!

Cheers, just got my free copy, downloads said they were at around 14600, so anyone else wanting this better move quick.

You should not be on Vista (aka Win7 Pre-alpha)!

Damn, I missed it!!

Damn, I missed it!!



I don't think so, from what I can see you can still download it. I'm using a mac so no good for me but good deal for those with PCs

Vista is pants! Get 7

How come it's expired when it isn't supposed to start until 1 Feb?

It was a limited number of copies starting on 1st Feb. They all went pretty quickly.

oooh missed out on this, probably a good job really, lol

I'm having a terrible time getting this to run. I feel like I've got over my system with a fine tooth comb, and I still can't figure out what the problem is. When I launch Angry Birds I get an error message saying, "Unknown Exception Happened". All you can do it click OK and the Error box disappears. I could really use some help.
