Wow, can't say I saw this one coming: It seems the blame for the delay in Halo 2 for Vista being released is a little thing called "partial nudity." Talk about dedication. I guess those boys at Bungie just couldn't help themselves and had to include that highly-requested Master Chief sex scene with Cortana. *cue 70s porn music*
In an e-mail statement sent to Next-Gen, Microsoft said, “It has come to our attention that an unfortunate, obscure content error which includes partial nudity was included in our initial production of “Halo 2” for Windows Vista. As such, we have updated the initial game packaging at retailers with a label, so customers are aware before purchasing the game. Additionally, we’ve developed an online update which can be downloaded from www.halo2.com to remove the content."
Remove the content? Why in God's name would we want to remove the content? Bust out the lotion boys, it's gonna be a long night of Halo.
[UPDATE: This picture above is to blame. Sorry, no Master Chief wang for you!
Friday morning, however, the ESRB e-mailed Next-Gen a statement that said a "photograph of an individual showing his bare backside" is accessible within Halo 2 Vista's exclusive map editor tool. Apparently, it pops up when an ".ass" error occurs
Damn. And here I thought I was gonna see some boobies.]
