Kou Xiaowei from the General Administration of Press and Publication of China (GAPP) says that the Network Game Real Name System will be released before June.
The real name system will require players to register with their identifying information. It also provides a means for parents to check the games being played by their children via an online service and for the police department to certify that registered information.
Kou said that this system would be put into trial use at the seven major games operators in China, including Shanda (SNDA), The9 (NCTY), Kingsoft, Optisp, Sina.com (SINA), Sohu.com (SOHU) and Netease.com (NTES), and would be promoted along with the network game addiction system which has already been launched.
According to Kou, the government will hold a series of activities this year to enhance and expand the market for domestically-made games which already account for up to 60% of the market.
