In this weeks latest Bungie update, Bungie explains why some people are having trouble with downloading the new Halo 2 maps. There was a glitch in the billing system allowing some members to get the maps for free. This bug has been fixed. Bungie has also been busy testing the new save feature which will appear in the upcoming beta. Split-screen will also be available on the beta but only in two player form.

Bungie also dispelled the rumor that Halo 3 will be running at 1080p with 60fps, It would be hard to have the game run at that setting with all the action onscreen, but it will display at 1080p on the Xbox 360 Elite.

And lastly, Bungie reveals the control set-up for the beta.
