I can't say that I'm actively playing the Xbox LIVE Arcade release of Perfect Dark, but if that was the case, today's news of a title update would surely put a smile on my face. It's packed full of stuff the community has undoubtedly been asking for, and best of all, it goes live tomorrow.

  • Legacy controls
  • Southpaw (left-handed) controls
  • Swap Triggers control option
  • Lock Sight control option
  • Precision Aim sensitivity tuning
  • Hardcore (No Radar, No Auto-Aim, No Highlights, Combat only) matchmaking playlist
  • Gamma (brightness) option
  • Secondary Fire Reset option in Combat Simulator
  • Quick Menu select using either Left or Right stick
  • Player Handicap reinstated in local multiplayer
  • Client player progress recorded in Live Co-Op game
  • Progress recorded for all primary players (main player on each console) in Live Challenges
  • Counter-Op progress recorded for both players if Jo player successfully completes the level
  • Achievement fixes including 'Tools of the Trade' (anyone who's earned but not received it will now do so), ‘Who Needs Enemies’ (awarded to Counter-Op player after a full mission's progress), ‘How's
  • That For Starters?’ (awarded to Counter-Op player if Jo player completes first level)
  • Increased duration of explosions to better match the N64 experience
  • Laptop Gun sentry mode performance adjusted to match the N64 experience

What's the verdict, Perfect Dark players? Will the issues you've potentially been having be addressed by this latest patch?
