Smart government. Games are already expensive enough no matter where you live. Games here at my GameStop in the US are $59.99 and after tax i'v paid around $63+

It's not a reduction for end users, but a tax break for developers. Makes the UK more attractive for start up and existing studios.

i bit late, a few studios closed down already, but hopefully the developers can be re-hired now

It is tax relief for developers not the sale of games. :)

One of the few things this government has done that I support. Never thought I'd say this, but thanks George/Gideon Osborne.
