The Chinese government will be severely restricting how much time kids can spend playing online games.

On Monday, the country announced new rules limiting children under the age of 18 to just one hour per day from 8pm to 9pm, and three hours total for the week.

The government says the new rules are meant to protect children’s physical and mental health.  But it could have a huge economic impact on China’s booming video game industry.

This seems a bit excessive if you ask me. Shouldn’t this be left up to the parents? I predict that games aren’t going to sell the same way in China! This seems very diplomatic!
