GDC: Larger XBLA games could affect pricing, says MS

The new size-cap increase for Xbox Live Arcade games could affect the price of titles on the service, Microsoft Casual Games manager Bryan Trussel has told CVG.

Why don't they charge less for current XBLA titles and with the larger titles, charge as the same as we are paying now e.g. no more than 800 points

dont you think that if someone spends more money and time on a game they should be able to charge more? there is nothing wrong with raising the price as long as its worth it. the TMNT and Simpsons game should be more than 800 points.

Think about it all those live arcade games that ain't going to get bought a little bit of advertising at the start of the game like this game with made free only with the power of duracell or pepsi or if they could give you the choice of paying 400 with ads or 800 without for the new stuff anyway i'd be interested to see which game made the most money uno and geometry wars or luminaries
