Crumbs. The Church of England isn’t happy with Sony, after the appearance of Manchester Cathedral in PS3 first-person shooter Resistance: Fall Of Man. The Bishop of Manchester has condemned the game, saying Sony didn’t have permission to use the interior of the cathedral in it, and is demanding that the game be taken off sale.
“For a global manufacturer to re-create one of our great cathedrals with photo-realistic quality and then encourage people to have guns battles in the building is beyond belief and highly irresponsible,” said the Bishop. The CoE and Sony are due to have talks early this week – with more than a million copies of Resistance already sold, it’ll be interesting to see if Sony does decide to withdraw it from sale.
