The game should be back in stores, without the verses indicted for mid-November.
Sony's decision to withdraw the game and change it sparked some controversy. Some time ago, in fact, a similar case Sony behaved differently. In the game Resistance: Fall of Man to Manchester Cathedral was destroyed by the bombs of an alien invasion, the Anglican Church had asked Sony to remove that part of the game, but Sony refused to do so. On this occasion, however Sony has provided for the immediate removal of the verses of the Koran and that there was not even a protest by Islamic religious authorities.
