GameDaily.biz has spotted a new document published by the Office of the United States Trade Representative that alludes to a 25% tariff on thousands of new goods. These include “video game consoles and machines, coin-operated arcade machines, and parts related to the operation of coin-operated arcade games.”
Basically, game consoles could be getting even more expensive. GameDaily.biz notes that most consoles are sold at a loss, but a 25% tariff would probably be passed on to the consumer: “manufacturers would likely look to recoup some of that additional expense.”
