Finally You Can Play Halo Reach in Co-Op with No HDD!

A new title update has been launched for Halo: Reach!  Who cares (I hear you ask) when Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is out November 15th?  Apart from the millions of people still regularly playing the game, co-op fans should also take note.  Some of you may remember the co-op controversy at launch, when owners of HDD free 360s could not play the game in co-op.  This has finally been fixed in the latest patch, along with a multitude of other tweaks and twiddles designed to draw Reach and Anniversary together.
