1.) Church leaders want the game removed from shop shelves or modification of the section of the game to remove the Cathedral interior.
2.)They also want an apology from the company for using “realistic photo quality” images of its building without permission.
3.) Govender said the church would also seek a donation to be used in its work with young people. He did not specify how much the company would be asked to pay.
Govender urged Sony to get in touch with the church within the next few days to discussed the points raised by church leaders, and hoped the two parties would be able to find a “mutually satisfactory conclusion.”
