Xbox Live Arcade

Established in 2004 for the original Xbox, the Xbox Live Arcade is the oldest, still-running gaming download service for video game consoles. It saw a renewed focus during the launch of the Xbox 360, which as made it a premier market for smaller-than-retail gaming products. The service features over 350 unique titles, and is one of the most active markets for digitally downloaded games for consoles.

FADE LLC estimates 2010 revenue exceeded $123 million USD for Arcade titles alone, not including downloadable content, community games, or games on demand services.
