OGA responds to ASUS cheat drivers

After polling its members on the issue last week, the "Online Gamers Association", an organisation which represents online and professional gamers, today sent an open letter to ASUS concerning their recently announced "3D SeeThrough Technologies". Revealed early last week, the SeeThrough features were going to be included in future versions of drivers for GeForce 2 based graphics cards made by ASUS, and would introduce wireframe and transparent view options for 3D games, allowing players to see through walls and other obstructions.

Needless to say, this could have had a major effect on online gaming, and would pretty much kill competitive online gaming. Unsurprisingly 90% of the OGA's members voted in favour of the motion that the new features should never be released, as they would encourage cheating in online gaming. As the OGA said in its letter, if 3D SeeThrough Tech was released it "would ruin the spirit of good sportsmanship in online and competitive gaming, allowing players to cheat in a way which would be almost impossible for current games to detect".
