'Poor taste' magazine reprinted
Bath-based Future Publishing has put off distributing the latest edition of a computer magazine because it says images it contains are in poor taste.

The first print of the Official PlayStation Magazine featured a double-page spread showing a dead goat from a press launch for a new game.

About 2,000 subscribers have already had their copies.

The remaining 80,000 magazines will have the double page removed and the sale will be delayed until next week.

Will Guyatt of Future said: "We appreciate our readers may have found the coverage of Sony's European God of War II press launch (in Greece) distasteful so we have taken the decision to have the offending images removed from copies destined for the UK news stands with immediate effect."

The images which are not from the game itself but from the press launch party showed a slaughtered goat.
