China limits kids’ online gaming


China is banning children from playing online games for more than three hours a week, the harshest restrictio­n so far on the game industry as Chinese regulators continue cracking down on the technology sector. Regulators announced that minors in China can only play games between 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays, weekends and on public holidays starting Sept. 1. That limits gaming to three hours a week for most weeks of the year, down from a previous restrictio­n set in 2019 that allowed minors play games for an hour and a half per day and three hours on public holidays.
