Good news: Video game developers get tax credits/breaks (I forget which) - should help us bolster our developers and hopefully bring us back to the near-top in terms of development. Before you poo-poo it, remember that video gaming is a multi-million - if not multi-billion - pound/dollar industry.
I'm fairly sure Alistair Darling had planned to introduce tax credits for the gaming industry before the coalition scrapped them upon coming to power. This would appear to be little more than a u-turn.
edit: thought so. Great foresight again, Gideon.
In March 2010, however, Alistair Darling announced Labour's intention to provide the UK development sector with tax incentives. For a few months, it looked as though the Tiga campaign had been successful. But then came the general election, and although both the Conservative and Liberal parties had given lip service to the idea of tax support for the games industry, that all dissolved in George Osborne's emergency budget, where he referred to the cause as 'poorly targeted'.http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/ga ... -interview
