According to Bloomberg, China’s Ministry of Culture, one of the government bodies that monitors media content, will be responsible for drafting new rules on video-game consoles after a 14-year-old ban was lifted. The rules will be written as soon as possible, Cai Wu, the head of the ministry, stated.
