Resistance: Fall Of ManYou might remember last weekend Resistance: Fall of Man was under fire from the Church of England, as they accused Sony of using the Manchester Cathedral in the UK as the backdrop to the PlayStation 3 FPS game. The church’s demands were dismissed by Sony and all they got was their apology. To quote: “It was not our intention to cause offense by using a representation of Manchester Cathedral in chapter eight of the work,” the letter said. “If we have done so, we sincerely apologize.”

UK’s Prime Minister Tony Blair told lawmakers this week that companies like Sony should focus on their wider social responsibilities and not just profit. The church was particularly concerned because Manchester has a history of gang-related gun violence, reported Breitbart.

Sony said it did not accept “that there is any connection between contemporary issues in 21st century Manchester and the work of science fiction in which a fictitious 1950s Britain is under attack by aliens. We believe a comprehensive viewing of the work will make its content and context clear,” adding that “Resistance: Fall of Man has sold more than 2 million units around the world.”
