This article lacks some context and detail.
It's not for gamers.

It's for developers, like myself.
It is only available to developers who develop their game or games in the UK.

Developers have to apply via the BPI website and pass a cultural test.
The OC3D article says details aren't available but they are:

you're prob right but at the same time let's hope it inspires more video game creatives to want to pursue their dreams, start studios and produce more great games

"Influenced by European culture or locations" lol what utter nonsense, surely it would be better to offer it to everyone. Sorry but this smacks of EU propaganda.

How would we not? It makes their budgets bigger and less companies getting shutdown.. more games released. Quite obvious if you ask me.

yeah ok its great for smaller company's, but for bigger company's this is not gonna mean anything great for gamers, they're just gonna turf out the same half finished stuff for a hefty price tag.
