Rockstar on Max Payne 3 Cheaters

Rockstar Games announces plans for those who use hacked saves, modded games, or other exploits to gain an unfair advantage in Max Payne 3 multiplayer. Word is cheaters will be condemned to a "cheaters pool":

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. In the event we decide to absolve any of these cheaters for their past transgressions they may re-enter play with the general public, however a second offense will result in their indefinite banishment. In either case, we will be removing invalid leaderboard entries to ensure that the players at the top of the charts have earned their spots fairly.

I will never understand what motivates people to cheat in online games.

Really dislike the no damage hack people are using, seriously its basically god mode which ruins the game and whoever uses it should get their account banned from all Rockstar games for life.

I'm still surprised that Max Payne got multiplayer to begin with.
Indeed. Same with Metro: Last Light - it's absolutely bizarre that it was delayed just to incorporate multiplayer.

I could see adding coop multiplayer to these games, just not PvP.

So basically they're making a special area for clans to play.

Isn't this putting all criminals onto one unsupervised Island to fend for themselves.

Even Snake Pliskin wanted out of New York...

Great idea... On the other hand is this really "shame". Isn't this putting all criminals onto one unsupervised Island to fend for themselves. That never has unforeseen consequences.

Watch them band together to hack into legit games and kidnap the president's daughter or something.

To be the best of the "cheaters circle" might be a new elite challenge rather than a deterrent?

So let them have at it? The point is to separate them from the people playing legitimately, i.e. the same goal as all anti-cheat methods.

So the population of "general public" players remaining just shrunk to a handful.

This is a fantastic idea.

I kind of like this approach to cheaters: put them in their own box so they can play with each other. I despise cheating, it totally undermines the game experience. On the other hand, computers are all about pushing the limits and human beings are prone to curiosity and poor decisions. This allows for that without the finality of a ban.
