A bill has been introduced into Oklahoma State Legislature, and if passed, will add an extra 1% tax to videogames rated Teen, Mature and AO. Drafted by District 86 Representative William Fourkiller (D), funds garnered from Bill HB 2696 would fund programs working to cull childhood obesity and bullying, both situations deemed an “emergency” in the Sooner State. If passed by Oklahoma’s House, it will go into effect on July 1. Thanks, GI.biz.

Joystiq just posted some shots from a GameStop’s midnight opening in Oklahoma. There’s a great “man looking like owl” picture there, so worth a nose.
“Even for Oklahoma, which isn’t a video game mecca by any stretch of the imagination, the event showed the popularity of a game like Grand Theft Auto and its reach across all demographics,” said the site.
“By 11:00 PM, the store had seen pre-purchases by an off-duty police officer, a elderly father purchasing the game for his underage son and equally youthful pal, and an older man obviously buying the game for a child waiting gingerly outside for his opportunity to run over prostitutes through the glory of high-definition.”
More through the link. We’ve added it to the list.
