Rumor: Fallout 3 release on Xbox 360 canceled in India

Microsoft has apparently announced that it doesn't plan to release Fallout 3 on Xbox 360 in India due to "cultural sensitivities," reports The statement by Microsoft India doesn't give any further details about what exactly the country would find offensive.

We've contacted Microsoft for a more detailed explanation and Fallout 3's developer, Bethesda Softworks, told Joystiq it has no comment. The PS3 and PC versions of the game were never scheduled for release in the country. We can't even begin to speculate what "cultural sensitivities" means in this situation, but it seems to be a valid reason to pull or delay games lately.
