The Associated Press reports that Massachusetts video game companies could receive tax credits and other incentives under legislation that seeks to strengthen the state’s foothold in an industry that’s sustained strong growth in a weak economy.   The legislation is expected to be filed on January 21.  You can read the full article in the Boston Herald.

Be sure to attend the NE Games SIG event on Tuesday, January 25, which will feature a panel consisting of the sponsor of the legislation, Rep. Vincent Pedone, as well as Eric Nakajima from the state’s office of economic development, Dr. Ian Davis from Rockstar New England, and Ken Surdan from Turbine, and will be moderated by Rodney Brown of Mass High Tech.  For details and to register click here.
