Update: Sony apologizes to people of Manchester Although they already apologized to the Church of England over their recreation of Manchester Cathedral in their hit game Resistance: Fall of Man, Sony took out a full page ad in the local paper yesterday to apologize to the people of Manchester in an effort to smooth things over.
The ad, which was in the Mnachester Evening News, apologized for any offences the PS3 game may have caused and also showed that Sony was humbled.

"It is clear to us that the connection between the congregation and the cathedral is a deeply personal and spiritual one,"
offered David Reeves, president of SCEE.

"As a result, it is also clear that we have offended some of the congregation by using the cathedral in our science fiction game. 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 offence, and to all parts of the community who might also have been offended."

Typical, ! Sony Scumbags; They (like others ) want to stop p2p altogether because they don't profit from it .Or so they claim . Yet they keep churning out these type of mind numbing moronic violent games ,using anything & anybody(living or dead ) as a component within same. No wonder this world is a screwed up place ,the inmates( with power) are running the asylum.

Well at least they made the effort to say sorry. This way the church can not say they did not come forward.
