Sony recall video game for fear of offending a religion....this time

Sony recall offensive video game


Sony don't recall offensive video game

Oh look, last year Sony didn't recall a game that staged a violent massacre in a virtual Manchester Cathedral despite the fact that it was clearly offensive to Christians. This year they frantically scramble to recall a game that be offensive to Muslims. Odd that isn't it.

This is most defintely not a jibe at Muslims, just a jibe at the way corporations and the media ride rough-shod over Christian sensibilities whilst taking a super-sensiitve attitude when they offend others. Double Standards? The way LittleBigPlanet and Resistance Fall of Man 2 have been handled stinks of it. Surely all people's faiths should be treated equally.
