According to a report today from VG 24/7, Microsoft increased the price of certain digital titles in some markets, including the United Kingdom where games were hiked by 5 pounds (roughly $8).

Microsoft confirmed the increase to VG 24/7 Wednesday after the website reported the jump in price yesterday of exclusive Xbox One games, including Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5 and Ryse: Son of Rome.

“Yes, pricing for select digital content in some markets has changed since launch,” the Microsoft representative said.

The Microsoft representative said that pricing of digital content is subject to change as the platform holder sees fit and price and promotions would vary by region. In the UK, the price jumped from 44.99 pounds to 49.99 pounds ($73.64 to $81.77).

However, it’s unclear if the increase will be permanent or what prompted Microsoft to up the price.

Other games published by Microsoft, including Crimson Dragon, Dead Rising 3: Premium Edition, Lococyle, Powerstar Golf and Zoo Tycoon have not seen rises in price.
