AFP: China Bans 50 Electronic Games

From RedNova News: “China has banned 50 electronic games, including FIFA Soccer 2005 and Microsoft’s Age of Mythology, as part of a campaign to combat what it sees as harmful influences on the young, state media said.

As well as cracking down on computer software, the government will also focus this year on ‘illegal publications’, Xinhua news agency said.

‘This particularly concerns pirated textbooks, electronic publications and illegal journals that will have a negative influence on the youth,’ it said.”
