Gaming in China now reported to Government

http://en.people.cn/n3/2018/1106/c90000-9515675.html

 

"Tencent Holdings, China’s largest gaming company issued an announcement on Monday, noting that a real name registration system, connected to China’s public security data base, will be applied to its new games to identify under-aged players and to help assist them better combat game addiction."

 

There are also other cities reporting the same thing, but all link back to this article.

 

What makes this interesting to me is that there is no announcement if this is in China only or will apply to any games outside of China.

 

They recently acquired a large stake in Blue hole, the creators of PUBG, which will be changed for the Chinese market.

 

While I don't agree with government overreaching; it's not my country. That said, it would be nice to have clarification if every time I log into PUBG, is China getting all my PII and gaming history.

This is hardly something new. China has been a totalitarian communist dictatorship since 1949. And it also wasn’t much better prior

Nothing new there; gotta crush any and all potential dissidents (non-han minority groups typically get lumped into this category) before they evolve into something a little more nasty (aka rebellion/secession movement).

 

China is not as stable (nor powerful) as what they (and the western media peddling fear/panic) would like the public to think.

I think its funny when stupid Westerners and the fake news media say "China's way is better".

 

Yep a brutal, murderous dictatorship where your organs will be harvested from your living body before you are discarded or imprisoned in concentration camps if youre muslim or suffer from wrongthink.

If they are having people register to monitor game addiction why don't they do the same of gamblers, alcoholics or any other addition. Do they have a list for smokers? Didn't think so, I call BS.

This isn't really news tbh. Tencent's stock price on HKEX has tanked a lot (like 25%+) in the past two months iirc because of this. Xi's regime had been slowly restricting along with a billion other things. Even things as small as train tickets and sim cards requires real name registration.

This would've been my worst nightmare as a kid if I was still living there, 1-2 hours of game time is not enough. Then again, considering how hard some of the kids game over there, it's not that surprising.  

 

When someone dies from gaming then its definitely a serious problem, especially when China does officially recognize excessive gaming as a mental disorder.

Easier said than done, they used to but gave up after seeing how huge of a revenue casinos are after the first decade.

 

As for alcohol, they feed their 4 year olds beer to build up their tolerance so I don't think that needs elaborating. You don't drink apple juice in a business meeting, you drink whisky and other expensive stuff.

I don't mind what China does within it's borders, they are a sovereign country and not the one I live in.

However, I am concerned if companies owned by Chinese companies, such as this, will be required to enforce this outside their borders.  The article makes no mention of it, either as an oversight or an implication that every person logging in will be required to submit such information.  As much as it probably already is, I don't think having an entire database of non-Chinese national's personal information and bio-metric information stored on a PRC government server is a good idea.
