'Halo 3' Takes Shot at Vice Prez
When 'Halo 3' players discovered the award dedicated to Dick, online forums lit up on developer Bungie's Web site with a fury of both positive and negative posts -- many disappointed with the Microsoft-owned studio for bringing politics into the game. Then on Monday, the achievement was quietly rechristened 'Open Season.'
Microsoft has confirmed that the award was present in the test version of the game, but would not be included in the final release. As for why the jab at Cheney was ever there in the first place, Microsoft wouldn't comment. It sounds to us like a case of a rogue developer having some fun – something that got Rockstar games in a lot of trouble when a programmer inserted a sex-simulation mini-game into 'Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.'
In other news, Microsoft confirmed today that 'Halo 3' would hit store shelves on September 25th in the U.S., and on September 26th in Europe.
