Prime Minister responds to Church's Resistance complaints

Tony Blair has given his response to the complaints expressed by the Church over Resistance: Fall of Man, telling parliament that companies must take responsibility for the impact their products have.

During today's Prime Minister's Questions Tony Lloyd, MP for Manchester Central, began his question by observing, "When large organisations like Sony find their copyright has been breached, they're very quick to use the law."

He continued, "Would the Prime Minister agree with me then that when Sony used images of Manchester Cathedral as part a game which extols gun violence, this was not only in bad taste but also very, very insulting to not simply the Church of England, but people across the land who think it's inappropriate that big corporations behave in this way?"

Blair replied, "I agree with my honourable friend. I think it's important that any of the companies engaged in promoting these types of goods have some sense of responsibility and also some sensitivity to the feelings of others.

"I think this is an immensely difficult area, the relationship between what happens with these games and its impact on young people,"

Then why not prohibit games happening in Gulf region and killing Arabs (very propagandist games by the way) with US (idiot and racist) troops invading Mosquees or games where you kill poor latinos in South America, well all guerilla games then!!! I mean there are much more games that can be criticized for sure compared to Resistance FOM!

Honestly, politics are all over the world, from France to USA, including Italy, UK, Belgium, pfff all completely mad, yes the World goes crazy!! They all wanna separate communities (religious, sexual, financial, and gamers now!!!)
Thank yo Bush&Co

If the church wins then every building owner can sue gaming companies that model a city with that particular building included. I wonder what happens to GTA IV?

this is so pathetic, everythin blown out of proportion. What the fcuk is wrong with the world today, everythin must be politcally correct. this reminds me of the "ba ba black sheep" alterations. now changed to "ba ba wool sheep"

emptiness3602d ago

people like you are what's wrong with the world today...people who are irresponsible, compassionless, and inconsiderate are the ones making the world what it is...ironically it's these people who are causing the problems that the same people complain about...

boi3603d ago

haha oh well expect the government to use their army against it then lol

I'm not surprised. Very few people in political positions around the world have any brains. Always blaming something or the other than actually solving the real problem.

The scene in question doesn't even seem to be insulting or negative towards the church at all. Just the mere fact that it's set there.

Just seems retarded. I fear for my children that haven't been conceived yet....the world is going to sh1t....

emptiness3602d ago

why would you even think about bringing children into the world when you know the world is going to sh*t?
