As Rovio's Peter Vesterbacka warns tablet market could eat into consoles

Angry Birds has now been downloaded more than 100 million times, according to Rovio Mobile marketing exec Peter Vesterbacka, speaking on a panel at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas.

"Everyone is playing Angry Birds," said Vesterbacka, as he outlined previously known stats like the game's 40 million monthly active users, who spend 200 million minutes a day playing the game across various devices.

Talking of devices, Vesterbacka was keen to stir up some controversy at the event. "Tablets are killing consoles," he said. "Four generations of new tablets come before a new console, if one ever comes."
