Battle for Manchester Cathedral

Filed under: Historic Places — John Maass @ 6:32 am


This from the BBC:

Sony Playstation’s ‘Resistance: Fall of Man’ uses the interior of [Manchester Cathedral’s] nave without permission.  Players of the PS3 game assume the role of an army sergeant who has been given a mission to win a battle.  The game, which has sold more than one million copies, shows a virtual shoot-out in the cathedral’s nave.  Hundreds of soldiers are killed during the battle inside the cathedral.  The Church say Sony did not ask for permission to use the cathedral and has demanded an apology and the removal of the game from shop shelves – otherwise legal action will be considered.
