Now Sony’s being accused of blasphemy

Sony’s in trouble again, this time because the game Resistance: Fall of Man features Manchester Cathedral.

THE CHURCH of England has threatened legal action against Sony after a violent PlayStation 3 computer game depicts Manchester Cathedral as a back-drop for a battle.

Church leaders accused Sony of “desecration” and said it had not asked permission to use the building.

The new game, Resistance: Fall of Man, sees a virtual shoot-out between warring soldiers inside a mock-up of the cathedral.

If I were a smart-arse I’d make a sarky comment about Church officials being unable to tell the difference between reality and fiction.
