Microsoft has announced that over the past few years, they've slowly been increasing the price of Xbox Live Arcade games - but only because consumers are willing to pay higher fees.

"I don't really know where prices are going to go - ultimately, that's set by the market - but it has been really gratifying to see that people are willing to pay a premium price for digital content," said Chris Charla, Xbox Live Arcade's portfolio director.

Microsoft are currently in the middle of their Summer of Arcade, with games like Bastion and From Dust showing that downloadable games have considerable quality.
