Sony

+ - Cathedral row over video game

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The BBC reports that the Church of England is considering legal action against Sony for featuring Manchester Cathedral in a violent PlayStation video game. The bishop of Manchester has stated that violence shouldn't be associated with the church, a view which may come as a shock to history students and those who've actually read the bible. Those protesting consider the game especially inappropriate because "it is well known that Manchester has a gun crime problem".

Sony describe the game as featuring "strange looking alien invaders seeking to destroy humanity". Speaking of which; MEP Arlene McCarthy is apparently writing to Sony to express her concerns."
