This is all well and bad, but I don't see discussion as to what is really interesting here: what kind of (inevitable) circumvention methods are gonna be used here for some, or all of the measures presented here?

Someone mentioned above non-gamers selling their unused time.

Also, kids could just get their parents to let them use their information to login.  

I'm sure people will come up with technological ways to circumvent detection.  That's the really interesting stuff.

Good This is actually a pretty decent way to cut down on game addiction. It might seem like it's a lot, but in all honesty, having almost 14 hours of online gaming time a week is more than enough for a child IMO.

Are you trolling, or do you honestly believe that it's good for governments to legally limit the amount of time people can spend doing a peaceful, victimless activity?

Off-topic: the amount of people who are spewing garbage about and against China, without knowing a single fact, is just daunting. Some of the garbage that people are peddling are downright xenophobic. What has this site become?

Never good to have government dictate it and make it a crime.

Also people are complaining about the government not the people, I guess you don't know what xenophobic means.

People can decry China for all they want but like it or not they are on progress to represent the beacon of technology whereas the western world is on the brink of being effectively left behind ...

China has a society that is intrinsically of higher trust while western social systems have lower trust which is why democracy, rule of law, and privacy are all overrated to them ...

There's a very good reason why the CCP have the "Mandate of Heaven" because the people believe that they can restore China to it's former glory ...



No surprise coming from a communist country.



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Xi Xinping really does hate it when people have fun.

Among other things, limiting to 90 minute schedules impedes one becoming addicted to video games. 

90 min/weekday is not bad for children.

Otherwise, 3 h for the weekend is bad.

3 hours in 14-hour windows are not bad, honestly.

Ah the inevitable devil's advocate.

I think you're the one a bit misguided about the CCP. This is not about China as a whole or its people, it's about an oppressive Totaliitarian government who literally beats and shoots dissenters in the streets, they've shot a woman's eye out for protesting for Hong Kong, they keep Chinese muslims in literal concentration camps, they keep a creepy level of tabs on their own population and monitor them, and now apparently they are even acting like the dictatorial parents of their own population by putting heavy restrictions on their gaming time. This is straight up Dystopian and it's creepy. The only thing I'm "phobic" of is totalitarianism, of a government who can't even grasp the simple concept of liberty, "live and let live," or hell, basic human rights for that matter - no matter WHERE it crops up.

Children have parents that can restrict gaming time if needed,letting the goverment in your house on a personal freedom like that is really worrying and where will that lead to?

And can you give an example of people being xenophobic in this thread because i do not really see it,or do you think that people speaking negative about the goverment are xenophobic?

That's all well and good.  But, we know objectively that communism, or whatever you want to call their current hybrid-but-still-super-authoritarian system, can't bring about prosperity in the long run.  So, there isn't any glory waiting at the end of their 100, or 1000, or 10000 year time horizon.  There's just oppression, suffering, and indignity on the way, and at the destination.
