    I do believe this story is incorrect in that Rovio actually develops the game and Chillingo only initially published the ipod touch/ipad version. Rovio is NOT included in the deal to EA as they are a completely separate company.

    Very well said and agreed…The thing is when a publisher is used, all rights fall in the hands of Chillingo. You might witness that Rovio has started to publish the game itself and you can see it on the iTunes page.
    A source quoted: “EA paid $20 million in cash for Chillingo, which–given what we now know, and that EA knew they weren’t gaining access to Rovio’s incredibly popular property–means they’re probably just interested in Chillingo’s experience picking winners. Stuff like Cut the Rope, Helsing’s Fire, Dracula’s Fire, and of course, Angry Birds.”
