The Ministry of Culture will extend its "Parental Monitoring System," a measure introduced in February to encourage parents to supervise their children's gaming habits, to all online games in China, according to an announcement on the MoC's site on May 31. As of June 1, the ministry will include the remaining 10% of online gaming companies that have not yet joined the program and plans to have industry-wide participation by the end of this year, China Youth Daily reported previously.

In addition, the MoC's online game content supervision commission and two other organizations have jointly released a "Reminder of Appropriate Gaming for Teens," recommending limits to the amount of time adolescents spend on games as well as a ban on teenagers playing MMORPGs and games with player killing-related content. The document also recommends schoolchildren be limited to a maximum of two hours' gaming per week and RMB 10 in game spending per month.
