    Wouldn’t something like that be nice for Ireland? Less of an immediate effect on tax revenues too due to the low number of game developers established here already.

    Couldn’t agree more, but the obstacle is getting the policy-makers ear and telling them using as few words as possible how much the economy stands to benefit.

    There is a lot of hype at the moment over at SiliconRepublic about Ireland’s digital strategy, with plenty of input coming from the top guys at Intel, who will most likely be putting an emphasis on games as a whole.

    In Spain they recently change videogames status to be similar to music and film. It makes it a lot easier for developers to get funding.
