"Partial nudity" in "Halo 2" Vista version

Posted by Kim Peterson at 10:02 AM

The Windows Vista version of "Halo 2" has been delayed because Microsoft said it discovered "partial nudity" in the game, according to GamesIndustry.biz. Microsoft is blaming an "unfortunate, obscure content error."

And it sounds like Microsoft is going to still allow that version of the game on store shelves. The company said it will place a label on the game's box alerting buyers to the content. All future runs of the game will have the nudity removed, so expect these first editions to soon appear on eBay for hundreds of dollars. Users will be able to download an online update to remove the nudity themselves.

"Halo 2" for Vista is scheduled to come out May 31 in the U.S., about three weeks later than initially planned.

I can't find any details on what the offensive images exactly are, however.
