In the much-hyped competition between China and the U.S., Americans are gaining an advantage in at least one area: Online gaming. China just made its already strict limitations for young online gamers even stricter. NYT (gift article for ND readers): China Tightens Limits for Young Online Gamers and Bans School Night Play. “Under the old rules, players under the age of 18 were limited to no more than 90 minutes of gaming on weekdays and three hours a day on weekend. Parents had complained that was too generous and had been laxly enforced, the administration said. The new rule sets the permitted gameplay hour to 8 to 9 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The government said it would step up inspections to ensure that gaming companies were enforcing the restrictions.” (Three hours total on weekends? My kids play three hours in two hours.)
