    A few days ago, I got a email from Sony telling me that they will start charging me tax when I make a purchase on playstation store. Before then (which was like a whole decade ago when the store was first made in 2008) this never was a thing. I was just curious why now is this a thing? Why wasn't this like so when it was first established? It just makes me confused and shocked. :wtf:

    Presumably there's been some legislation passed wherever you're based that now requires tax on the sale of digital goods.

    I m glad that I didn't buy from PSN. I don't like digital games at all. A physical version is better. I know that some games are digital only but I can live without it anyway. Or a jailbreak. :)
