TV News: M-rated Games Need Not Apply for Oklahoma Tax Break

In late January GamePolitics reported on a bill before the Oklahama which would provide tax breaks to video game developers – but only if their project wasn’t likely to earn an M (17 and older) rating.

GP comment mod E. Zachary Knight, who alerted us to the original story, has now pointed us to KFOR-4’s coverage of the bill (fast forward to 5:38).

KROF reporter Jesse Wells sums the issue up nicely:

Ironically, the M-rated restriction on video games doesn’t apply to TV and film projects made in Oklahoma. They get tax breaks even if they’re rated R or NC-17.

Bill sponsor Sen. Anthony Sykes (R) declined to be interviewed.
