China Bans Virtual Killing

Posted Tue, Aug 30, 2005 by Boomjack

Virtual killing is wrong, unless it's of virtual Japanese, so says China.
Interfax is reporting that the Chinese government
has ordered Object Software to remove rewards for killing player characters. How this affects the government funded Anti-Japan War Online remains unclear. Our calls to the Chinese government regarding tank driving as an Olympic demonstration sport remain unanswered:

" Furthermore, the MOC also announced punishments for six other Chinese developed online games that failed to gain relevant approval before beginning testing in China. The six titles included "Earth Civilization Online" operated by Mingnuo Dongfang, "Meteor Academy" operated by R4S, "7Hero" operated by PowerNet, "Space Jiayuan" operated by Fenteng Interactive, "Huaxia Online" operated by Shenzhen Domain Network, and "Sheng Zhan" operated by The MOC did not specify what the punishments for these games would be.
