MVC3 is no place for cheats

Capcom to ring-fence rage-quitters.

Cowardly Marvel vs. Capcom 3 users who repeatedly choose to rage-quite in the face of ignominious defeat will find a nasty surprise in store, Capcom has revealed.

According to Games Radar, the developer will be keeping an invisible record of players' connection stats during online bouts. Those who habitually quit out before the end of a match will be marked down and eventually only paired against other quitters.

That's a nice idea in principal - just make sure you've got a reliable internet connect, you hear? We wouldn't want to see Cheatsville populated by poor souls still attempting to chug along on dial-up.

Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 18th February. According to Eurogamer's Matt Edwards it's looking rather good.
