The Polish government wants to stimulate “cultural” video game

Правительство Польши хочет стимулировать «культурные» видеоигры

The Ministry of culture of Poland is going to submit to the government a system of tax incentives aimed at stimulating the national gaming industry.

The treatment officials said that the country has 330 companies, and that of Poland in Europe most will know it is for video games. In addition, video games not so little swell local coffers and create jobs. And everything would be okay, if not for one thing: tax breaks, grants, and other public investments will get only games deemed “cultural”.

What exactly is meant by Polish officials by this term is unknown, but it is likely that these games must, first, one way or another to represent Poland in a good light in front of the others, talking well about her history and people, and, secondly, should not denigrate a state that gives money. In other words, the maniac shooter Hatred could hardly count on bonuses, but here’s a hypothetical Witcher 4 – easily.

Expect similar steps from our legislators.

In addition, Mr. Howard expressed against and in order to give their game development to third party studios. Specifically, he said: “We are now large enough to be able to keep all your secrets to yourself”. It was said in the context of the discussion of Fallout: New Vegas, which Obsidian Entertainment did, and that in the fan environment ulterior motive is the best part of Fallout since its reboot.

In General that the refusal of re-mastering that the refusal of the transfer of their franchises to third parties – a controversial decision which is unlikely to cause bouts of enthusiasm, because so far the only thing that Bethesda has turned out to be really good to do with their hands – series The Elder Scrolls. The rest – either with others, or not very good.

A fine of 4.3 billion euros imposed for abuse of monopoly in the field of imposing third-party software to all owners of mobile electronics running Android. We’ve all seen that a bunch of rubbish that ends up in our smartphones and tablets with the next update of the operating sheath. Do we, at least half? Unlikely. However, the formal reason for the purpose of the penalty was the program enjoyed by millions. Specifically, European officials did not like the imposition of the Chrome browser that cannot be deleted from the system, and who is always reset as soon as you go to PlayMarket.

But the penalty means nothing. Chrome still need to remove, or open to all comers an opportunity to remove within three months. If Google would not like, that the company will be fined additionally.
