Microsoft has revealed that its Summer of Arcade promotion for Xbox Live saw a 200 percent surge in revenue over last year, partly thanks to raising the average price of the games included in the promotion.
According to the press release posted below, Trials HD and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 performed so well in each titles’ first week, it joins Shadow Complex as one of the top five bestselling week-one XBLA games of all time.
Last year, three of the five Summer of Arcade games were priced at $10, but this summer, only two of the five were $10 with the other three costing $15 each.
Microsoft also hit a winner with 1 vs. 100 averaging over half a million users during each of the game’d live sessions.
