In case you hadn't figured out how this works yet, Rovio releases a new Angry Birds game, and then it sits on the charts for months and months and months. This week we welcome the latest Rovio chart-sitter, Angry Birds Star Wars.

It's a week of major releases on the iPad, unlike last week where everyone just bought and downloaded whatever they could get their hands on. Between the space birds and the pretty pony princesses I'll be busy all weekend long.

Okay, probably just playing the pony game. I tried.
