156w ago - Update: As confirmed by KRaZEHERE, Rockstar has now fixed the Red Dead Redemption PS3 Free XP Glitch Exploit.
Today Gamerzines.com (linked above) reported on a Red Dead Redemption PS3 'Free XP' glitch exploit that has surfaced to plague Rockstar's open world action-adventure Western video game.
When traveling to the various gang hideouts on the map, although finding the enemies won't spawn, users are currently receiving a "Hideout Complete" message and being awarded with Free XP.
Of course, some players are exploiting this Red Dead Redemption PS3 glitch as follows, to quote:
"Those looking to exploit such a glitch, will be able to continually select 'Replay' on the Personal Stats screen, and begin to quickly rank their character in a matter of minutes.
Keep doing so, and you'll be able to whizz your way righ up to level 50, unlocking all weapons, steeds etc on the way."
Below is a clip of the Red Dead Redemption PS3 glitch exploit in action, courtesy of red8316!

Yeah, I played tonight and it didn't work for me as well. No free EXP anyway. But I did do the Co-Op games and on one of the games (Mexican Army battle). None of them spawned in the game. So we just ran and blew up the objective. We got 3 trophies for doing so, lol.
Will mess around with it more later on today. It's 3am now....
As of now it does not seem to be working. However, I noticed calling your horse would not work leading up to the video in the post. Later, the horse was intermittent. Finally the horse would come after some time had passed IRL. From that point on the hideouts would be manned. However, they would be manned by say only 2 or 3 members in some cases. Also, in the clip the hideout was approached on foot, not on horse, if that has anything to do with gang members being there or not.
