Sites which host game footage were advised by Bethesda yesterday that they must take down any trailers for Fallout 3.
With the highly-anticipated, M-rated game launching today, the move is ill-timed, to say the least. Maximum PC cites an e-mail from Bethesda VP Pete Hines:
In connection with ESRB’s advertising guidelines, you are instructed to remove immediately any of our Fallout 3 trailers from your website, pending further notice.
Meanwhile, Edge Online speculates that a Fallout 3 trailer which shows an adversary’s head exploding in slo-mo, might be at fault.
