Government has 'let down' video game development in UK

BBC:

The games industry say it has been "let down" by the government, following its decision not to award tax breaks.

The premise giving the sector 20% tax relief had been floated by the Labour government before the last election.

But the Culture Minister, Ed Vaizey, told delegates at the video game Develop conference in Brighton that the case "had not been made". (Industry)
