Children and young gamers in China rent adult accounts to play video games due to new restrictions
Renting your video game account to a young gamer seems like a lucrative and harmless business, but those who bypass the new restrictions imposed in China already have legal problems.
On September 1, the new restrictions of the Chinese government came into force, prohibiting children and adolescents from playing video games for more than three hours a week . Given this, young gamers have chosen to rent other people's accounts to have access to their video games for more hours.
Starting this month, Chinese minors can only play for one hour a day , and only on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays , from 8 to 9 at night . The measure applies to all devices from which a video game can be accessed: console , smartphone , tablet and PC , among others. On public holidays, an extra hour can be played at the same time, according to a statement from the National Press and Publications Administration of China.
This has opened an unexpected business in the gamer world: the rental of video game accounts so that the youngest can play longer. According to the Chinese media People's Daily , more than twenty commercial platforms began to rent video game accounts for prices starting at $ 5 for two hours .A great deal ... that might not be legal
The aim of the Chinese authorities is to "effectively protect the mental and physical health" and the "healthy growth" of minors, they explained when announcing the ban. In addition, official media described video games as "spiritual opium" and "electronic drug."
Do you know where I can find all game account for sale? I read that there is an account store. It has several undeniable advantages over resellers. It finds those who want to sell their game accounts or they come to the store's website themselves. After granting access to the account, the store checks it and if everything is fine, redeems the account.
