Xbox One Digital Game Prices Raised
Microsoft raises prices for Xbox One exclusives, Forza 5, Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome.

However, rather than lower their prices, Microsoft has now gone in the opposite direction, with the price of Xbox One exclusives Forza 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3 all being raised on the Xbox store.
Forza 5, Ryse and Dead Rising 3 were all previously priced at £44.99, but are now on sale for £49.99.
Digital pricing on console platforms has understandably been criticised by those who question why digital prices should be equal to, or even higher than, retail copies of the same games.
The logic behind Microsoft' £5 price hike for Xbox One exclusives is likely to be lost on those already unhappy with the price of digital game downloads.
Not sure what has possessed them to do this US prices haven't changed. If its because of exchange rates, surely they'd be better eating the costs rather than the negative backlash this will cause. Retailer pressure maybe?
