Pennsylvania legislators consider violent game tax


GamePolitics spent a little time at the Pennsylvania House of Representatives last week for its hearing on violent video games. During the proceedings, a pair of State Representatives questioned the Penn. Joint State Commission about ways violent video games could be targeted. For example, putting a 5% tax on violent game sales, with those funds being allocated to parental education programs. Another suggests withholding tax incentives from companies that make violent video games.

To be clear, the meeting was exploratory, so it's a lot of talk and very little substance -- like most government conversation about video games (www.instantrimshot.com). If you're in the mood for watching congressional proceedings about taxing video games, check out the video after the break.
