Louisiana's decided to award games companies in the state a tax break of 25 percent.

ESA's welcomed the move.

"We commend Governor Jindal for his strong leadership as well as that of Senator Duplessis for expanding the state’s computer and videogame development and production base, and helping lead the way in creating the next generation of entertainment innovation in Louisiana," said ESA boss Michael Gallagher.
