213 gaming companies from the Middle Kingdom have promised to bring order to the industry to combat gambling addiction.
More than two hundred Chinese gaming companies have declared their readiness to independently take measures to fulfill the new requirements of the Chinese government to combat gambling addiction among persons under 18 years of age.
A statement signed by 213 Chinese companies to help combat Chinese citizens’ gambling addiction was published by the Chinese gaming association CGIFC on its official WeChat channel, and the companies that signed the statement include gaming giants Tencent and NetEase.
The CGIGC said that there will be a fight against attempts to circumvent the rules, for example, using foreign gaming platforms.
Game companies have also pledged to fight content that distorts Chinese history and makes men too feminine. The Chinese government called on them to do this. It is dissatisfied with the distortion of historical facts about national heroes in games and believes that effeminate men contribute to the promotion of unhealthy tendencies in society.
Recall that in August, the PRC authorities limited the time that minors can spend on video games: now they are allowed to play only from 20:00 to 21:00 on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and holidays.
