Microsoft has confirmed that it has raised prices on the digital downloads of Ryse, Forza Motorsport 5 and Dead Rising 3 in the UK. The games were initially offered at £45 when the system launched on Nov. 22 in the region, but today those games costs £50 each.
A Microsoft representative confirmed with CVG that the prices have changed slightly since launch, but said that pricing on digital downloads is subject to change in the future:
"Yes, pricing for select digital content in some markets has changed since launch," a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement to CVG.
"Digital content pricing is subject to change and we may occasionally offer various deals or promotions. Ultimately pricing and promotions will vary by region."
As CVG points out, the games – even at their new inflated price – are still less than Sony's first-party games for PS4: Knack and Killzone Shadow Fall retail in the UK for £53 each.
