A free $60 game is just $60 of taxable income. $60 toward a game is $0 of taxable income. You can't deduct an expense that doesn't exist from your business' income.But expenses can be deducted from the company's profit which is essentially his income. So either he gets the game donated, reports it, and then deducts it as a business expense or gets money, buys the game, and deducts its worth as a business expense.
