    Are you serious about Oregon not having sales tax? That's crazy, it's 10% where I live [​IMG]

    10% in Canada... but that's GST (government (5%)) and PST (provincial (5% in Saskatchewan)) combined.

    It's actually kinda dishonest on Sony's part. Why should you pay state tax for digital distribution?

    Yeah, regarding the dishonesty comment... I read somewhere that Sony still charges you sales tax even if you pay with a PSN card (or whatever they're called). So you pay tax on the card *and* what you buy with it, nevermind the fact it's intangible

    Oh wow, unless I find a Province with no PST I might start buying stuff on US PSN using my parents address in California.
    This way I still stay honest and dodge the taxes =P

    I think the taxes I paid on PSN combined would net me another downloadable game.. sigh..

    Wait, what?
    California has 7.25% sales tax according to this...

    I don't know.. I still use my old New Jersey address and they charge me 7% sales tax.
