Resistance: Fall of Man - Bless me Father for I have Sinned! Friday, July 6th, 2007
Sony issued an apology Friday for its bloody gameplay outside a catherdral that bears a striking resemblance to the Manchester Cathedral. Oooppsss!!!! Thankfully - and those of you that have played I am sure will agree - Sony has not responded to the churches demands to pull the offensive game off the shelf.
The church had demanded
According to the
“It was never our intention to offend anyone in the making of this game, and we would like to apologize unreservedly to them for causing that offense, and to all parts of the wider community who we might also have offended,” Sony Computer Entertainment Europe President David A. Reeves said in the apology.
Sony says Ooppsss, accepts its pennance, perhaps says some hail mary’s deep in the depths of the boardroom and promises to never do it again. Not Enough says the church! Dig deeper into the depths till you reach those brimming pockets and show me the money! Part of the church’s outstanding demands, also included a donation to the church’s education department, which works to fight gun violence in Manchester. I am so shocked.
No further comment from Sony who now considers the matter closed.
