|Sony spent a fair amount of apologizing for their games this year.
First there was the God of War II press party where topless women and a dead goat centerpiece got more press than the game did.
“It has come to our attention that at the God Of War II launch showcase, an element of the event was of an unsuitable nature. We recognize that the use of a dead goat was in poor taste and fell below the high standards of conduct we set ourselves. God of War II. Sony does not condone or sanction any inappropriate behaviour by its staff or sub-contracted staff.”
They also had to apologize to the Church of England for using Manchester Cathedral as a backdrop for the game Resistance: Fall of Man.
“It was not our intention to cause offense by using a representation of Manchester Cathedral in chapter eight of the work. If we have done so, we sincerely apologize.”
