Marketing vs. P.R. vs. Advertising vs. Branding

Even after studying Business & Economics at uni for a year I still never worked out the difference between these. I still think its some sort of "I lick your arse, you lick mine" kind of mentality but hopefully these will help explain things better. Yup, you, me and the rest of 7th grade.

The Church Of England has allegedly threatened to sue Sony over the use of Manchester Cathedral in the alternate-future PS3 game, Resistance: Fall Of Man. Footage below:

More after the jump below.

Under the 1988 Act, the Church could also argue that it owns the copyright to the photos that Sony is thought to have used to recreate Manchester Cathedral, Catrin Turner, a Partner at Pinsent Mason said.

Ms Turner added that the Church could follow action under libel or trade libel laws. “The Church is by no means home on this, but if it could prove it has been sullied in the eyes of worshippers who believe it has endorsed or authorised this game, it could have a case,” she said.

Trust me, if you're bored of those driving games that force you to drive around in a circle, hemmed in by the barriers on the side of the "road" and being unable to dent, bash into, or generally fuck up your car, this could well be the game for you. Could be, I say.

PS3: PS3 Firmware Cracked?

PS3News is reporting that a hacker going by the name of -wait for it -hacked2123, has found a way to exploit something regarding something-or-other in the PS3's software -but apparently will only work on machines that still have the original v1.10 firmware. (So, for all you suckers who decided to make full use of the internet capabilities of the PS3; you're shit outta luck -Sony forces you to upgrade your firmware pretty much as soon as you plug that ethernet plug into the back...)

Anyway, its not a full hacked PS3 -yet. Give it a few more months and we'll start seeing more people buying PS3s cos then games suddenly won't be costing $60 each anymore.
