Microsoft recently drop royalties paid for Xbox Live Arcade from 70 % to 35 % on games < $4m in revenues (the rate rises closer to 50 % when revenues > $4m). ,,, "Nintendo explained that we'll not only be making a better royalty rate from WiiWare games, but we'll also have a better chance of selling games, since the service won't be clogged up with the retro titles that have blighted the chances of many independent studios on Xbox Live Arcade," said one studio business development boss.
