A Forecasting and Analysing Digital Entertainment (FADE) report has claimed Xbox Live Arcade generated $103.4 million (£65.9m) during 2009, a 34 percent increase compared to the year previous.

The average price of a downloadable game on the service rose from $8.33 to $9.12.

Promotions such as the Summer of Arcade also helped figures.

Castle Crashers sold over 1 million copies during the entire year, and DICE’s Battlefield 1943 is estimated to have sold over 800,000 units.
