China to Limit Online Game Time

From Out-Law.com: Chinese internet gamers face time limits

"Chinese online gaming addicts will shortly find their playing time curbed by a government-led scheme that will restrict players from playing more than three hours at a time, according to Interfax China. (...) The move is in response to concerns that some players are becoming so immersed in the online fantasy games that it is affecting their day-to-day lives."

"The agency reports that the system should be ready for internal testing by October, and will then operate on a trial basis on several games, including “The Legend of Mir II” and “World of Warcraft”. The system is expected to become compulsory for all online role-playing games in China by early next year."
