The ESRB has elevated the rating of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion from Teen to Mature due to strong violence and nudity.
Much like the Hot Coffee mod surrounding the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas debacle, a user-created mod allows access to topless skin files in Oblivion. News of this mod and a claim that the game contains stronger depictions of violence than the original submission to the ratings board has bumped up the rating for both the PC and Xbox 360 version of the game.
The fact that the topless files were within the game could cause trouble for the game’s developer, Bethesda. This may lead to a recall of the game and a removal of the files in question. A re-release of the game without the files might allow the game to return to its Teen rating.
