China limits online game time for kids

Online game companies are being forced offer one-hour only slots to children in China.

On Monday, the country’s National Press and Publication Administration (NPPA) published a notice on preventing kids from becoming addicted to online games.

Children can now only access online games for one-hour from 8pm to 9pm on Friday, Saturdays, and Sundays, as well as during public holidays.

According to state-run news agency Xinhua, the NPPA has also urged the implementation of real name registration and logins.

The Chinese authority said that online game providers must not provide services to users who do not register or log in using real names.

It also plans to launch a campaign in schools and to strengthen communication between the online gaming community, parents, teachers, and schools.
