Nudity delays Halo 2 for PC

by Saleem Khan, CBC News Online

Microsoft Corp. is delaying shipping science fiction action game Halo 2 for WindowsVista PCs after nudity was found in part of the software.

Anyone hoping to find that the high-resolution version of the game previously released for the original Xbox repeats the infamous Hot Coffee uproar that surrounded Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for prurient, political or other reasons will be sorely disappointed.

The offending content does not depict a hologram of the female artificial intelligence Cortana in compromising positions with top Spartan space Marine Master Chief or anything like it. Instead, a photo of a mischievous fellow's bare rump is found in part of the map-editing software.

Microsoft is delaying shipments for a couple of weeks to fix the problem but people who already own a copy can download a patch from the Halo 2 site's support section.

Ha! I realley don't see the harm in seeing someone's bare butt in MAP EDITING software. I mean really, how often is one going to see said rump? It would be a different story is the rump showed up in the main credits or title screen of the actual game. But in the map editor? Peh.

I imagine the picture was put in there by a member of the Bungie team as a gag and was not removed when it was being coded for public release. No big deal really, its a simple fix and only a couple week delay. Still, quite entertaining.

This just reminds me of the book JPob in which five video game designers plot sabatoge their companies computer game by insterting a Ronald McDonald esc serial killer into a magical flying carpet learning game for kids.
