Chinese government puts curfew on video gamers

November 10, 2019

The Chinese government has put a curfew on video gamers.

Gamers under 18 will be banned from playing online between 10pm and 8am.

They will also be restricted to 90 minutes of gaming on weekdays and three hours on weekends and holidays.

Its part of China’s latest move to deal with video game addiction.

China is one of the world’s largest gaming markets.

The official government guidelines – released on Tuesday – include spending limits for minors.

Gamers eight to 16 years old can spend up to $29 per month, while those between 16 and 18 years can spend up to $60 on their gaming accounts.

China is the second-largest gaming market in the world, only behind the US.

But the new guidelines will apply to all online gaming platforms operating in China.
