Australian developers still want their tax break
The Game Developers Association of Australia (GDAA) has followed up previous calls by writing to the Government's arts minister and opposition minister asking that the game industry receive the 40% tax rebate offered to the film industry. The GDAA says that the break would bring in an extra $5 million a year of investment capital in Australian developers.

"

We have a commitment to ensuring that participants in the interactive entertainment industry are equally competitive with our overseas competitors," said Greg Bondar, executive director of the GDAA.

The Australian request is similar to the tax breaks in Canada which have brought more investment into their country's game industry. Well, here's hoping for the tax break, because that'll be a g'day for GDAA. Oy, that was awful.
