For Cheaters In Max Payne 3, Hell Is Other Cheaters

Max Payne 3 developers Rockstar have come up with a tidy solution to the problem of dealing with online cheaters: throw them in the same room together and let them kill (or at least annoy) each other.

Here's Rockstar's explanation:

Anyone found to have used hacked saves, modded games, or other exploits to gain an unfair advantage in Max Payne 3 Multiplayer, or to circumvent the leaderboards will be quarantined from all other players into a "Cheaters Pool", where they'll only be able to compete in multiplayer matches with other confirmed miscreants.

The sight of cheaters trying to out-cheat other cheaters is something Rockstar should film then distribute. I know I'd watch it.

I know Battlefield 3 is too big a game to do the same, but boy, in my dreams this is something nearly all developers could implement.

    Fantastic idea. Surely something similar to this could be used as a DRM or anti piracy measure?

      Agreed. Another reason why Rockstar is such a great company. Punish the few instead of punishing the masses.

        +1. Well done Rockstar.

        Plus i imagine it saves them having to worry about patching the exploits and spend that time on better stuff like patches and dlc :)

      Now they can feel the frustration

    God damn it I think this could be a good game to fool around with them, also why dont they fool them around and like say sorry did we shut off your servers, maybe if you didnt mod the game well we might have let you play the game a bit further.

    This makes me want to cheat. Lets face it, that will be where the real fun will be at

    That means they can still play. I think that is somewhat fair enough.

    I remember when Max Payne mods were good things.

      Somewhat off topic, but Max Payne mods were excellent, and it's a bit sad that MP3 doesn't support them. We need a Kung Fu Mod 3.
