Business is Booming - China Cracks Down
Online games are huge business in China, but regulation agencies are cracking down...not on piracy, but on the "unhealthy" social impact of games. PRC officials banned minors under 18 from playing any online games that feature PvP battles, which means many servers of World of Warcraft will not be available to younger fans of the game. China has no rating system in place, which makes it all the trickier for game companies to figure out what's kosher and what's not. This is an important emerging market for online games but no one wants to tangle with the Chinese police!
Check out the full news story on this, and stay tuned to 1UP as we uncover the impact government regulations will have on doing business in this global game market.
