How Rockstar Deals with Max Payne 3 Multiplayer Cheaters

Rockstar's come up with an interesting way to deal with cheaters. Rather than banning them outright, the company has decided to pit cheaters with… other cheaters.

Rockstar has stated in their official blog that anyone found using "hacked saves, modded games, or other exploits" will be banished to the "Cheaters Pool," where cheaters will only be able to play with other cheaters. Obviously, those found innocent of cheating will be restored to playing with the general public.

We're not sure what kind of message Rockstar is sending to cheaters by allowing them to continue online play, but it's definitely an interesting punishment. We wonder how cheaters will feel playing with other cheaters. Will they try to "outcheat" each other?
