Although your copy of Halo 2 still has that lovely new-game smell to it, developer Bungie has announced a patch for it?s Xbox killer app, expected to be the first of many updates for the massive game.
To be delivered via Xbox Live, the updater, which will do its business automatically, will speed up the matchmaking aspect of online play, which had to date drawn criticism from users for being sluggish, especially after the conclusion of a match. The update will remove the need for the game originator to restart proceedings, making everyone smile with a happiness only FPS-obsessed Xbox gamers possess.
One of the bonus training levels will also be included for multiplayer use.
And there?s good news for those not connected to Xbox Live. According to reports, the update can be fitted onto a memory card, enabling users to use someone else?s set up to gain access.
