No, you won’t lose your friends list

Ahhh…the internet. There is a rumor floating around that you will lose your Xbox Live friends lists if you download the Halo 2 maps that are going to be out tomorrow. It is complete, and utterly wrong. The new maps and your Xbox Live friends lists are not related at all. Don’t listen to the people who tell you this, and feel free to point them to this post. I am going on record to say this once and for all: You will NOT lose your friends lists (or anyone on your friends list) when you download the new Halo 2 maps (or any other downloadable content for that matter.)
