China Impose Curfew for Teenage Gamers
DTF reports that the Chinese government has decided to limit the time for computer games relating to children and teenagers. On weekdays, young gamers will be allowed to spend no more than 90 minutes on entertainment in virtual reality, and no more than three hours on weekends and holidays. To put this rule into practice, the state called on all Internet platforms to register users with the aid of real contact information. Thus, it will be possible to track how much time the kid spent playing an online computer game. There is already a ban on night-time games for teenagers - 22:00 - 8:00. Besides, the government set limits on the amount of money that children can spend on their game accounts:
  • children from 8 to 16 years old can spend $29 per month in their account;
  • teenagers (16 to 18 years old) can spend almost twice more - up to $57.
