CNN.com Cheating Article

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

While this article focuses mainly on cheating, it also looks at the impact of RMT as well. It is an interesting read, and being on CNN, further shows that video gaming, and all that comes with it, is becoming more and more mainstream.

Here are some of the highlights of the article:

  • Many video game valuables can be sold for real money
  • Some players use exploits, known as cheats, to get advantage
  • Six-thousand pieces of gold can sell for $420 in “World of Warcraft”
  • Intel, other companies, working on ways to root out cheaters
