(Reuters) – Shares of Tencent Holdings Ltd (HK:) dropped more than 2% on Tuesday, after China announced new rules for young video gamers.
That compared to a 0.4% slide in the benchmark and a 0.6% gain in Hang Seng Tech Index.
China announced on Monday rules forbidding under-18s from playing video games for more than three hours a week, a stringent social intervention that it said was needed to pull the plug on a growing addiction to what it once described as “spiritual opium”.
