Well, that’s what Star Locke of Texas thinks should be done, and if he’s elected for governor, he will do what he can to make that happen.
[quote]Locke said he favors instituting… a 50-percent tax on violent video games.[/quote]
Personally, I think that is a bit ridiculous. That would make any $50 game $75 if it was considered violent (many T rated games could be considered as such), and since many games will be retailing at $60 now, you’re looking at $90 per game. I could maybe understand an extra $5 per game or something as a way to bring in more money, but 50% is just absurd.
I know many of the readers of Snackbar are from Texas, so with that being said, how do you guys feel about the small possibility of this kind of tax?
