Re: Dumb question about patches

Not a dumb question at all.
A patch will(should) fix glitches and bugs within a game and occasionally add some small features as well. It's a way for devs to get those [hopefully] few bus that QA might have missed that the consumers caught while playing the demo.

You don't have to pay, they're free and will be automatically downloaded when you pop the game in.
It'll prompt you with something like 'do you wish to update this game?'(answer should be yes, of course)

I hope that helps!

You have to download the update to play online. As soon as your game starts, before the opening video, it will tell you that an update is available and you have to download it to continue. As long as you have a system online connection (Xbox Live membership) there is no cost.
