They’re up in arms again over the presence of Manchester Cathedral in the game Resistance: Fall of Man. Last time they did this, Sony apologized but said it was going nowhere.
Well, now Resistance has been nominated for a BAFTA award (British Academy of Film and Television Arts), and the Church is once again angry, claiming that it’s like “salt in [their] wounds” and that the only reason Resistance was nominated was because of its fairly solid sales numbers, which were in turn substantially increased by the controversy.
Dear Church of England:
- Resistance‘s sales numbers are high because it was the only half-decent game out for the PS3 at launch.
- If you knew that controversy would increase sales, why touch it at all?
- Most importantly, no one EVER bought a game because there was a controversial cathedral in it!
