"Preacher Hero" Hits Stores Just in Time for the Holidays

Tokyo, Japan - Given the high degree of success of Sony's Guitar Hero for their Play Station game systems, the company announced the release of a new similar game just in time for the holiday rush. In the new game entitled Preacher Hero players get the chance to "out preach" some of the most famous preachers in the world today.

"Given the infatuation with television preachers, we feel this game will be very popular" said Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer. "Now kids can test their preaching skills against some of the most famous television preachers in the world today."

The game can be played in one of two ways. The game comes with a special microphone which the player plugs into the console. Texts from sermons move across the screen while the player screams into the microphone. The player can also play with the controller and attempt to animate his or her favorite preacher as he or she preaches. Players also get extra points for performing a healing or for speaking in tongues.

The game will include some of today's most famous preachers including,

  • Bishop T.D. Jakes
  • Joel Osteen
  • Benny Hinn
  • Kenneth and Gloria Copeland
  • Dr. Joyce Myers
  • Robert Schuller
  • Jan and Paul Crouch
  • Creflo Dollar
  • And Randy and Paula White
The game hits the shelves at stores this Wednesday with a price tag of $69.95.

Great way to familiarize your kids with the prosperity gospel! But my wife confiscated it after she walked into the kids' room just when they had T.D. going "Woman - Thou art loosed!"

$69.95, huh? Is that the exchange rate for 30 pieces of silver these days?



By the way, do deaf people sign in tongues?

I was wondering, can you move these guys around and pretend they're preaching a sermon you recite? Wouldn't it be cool, for example, to see Creflo Dollar doing "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"?

Mr. Boyce:

"By the way, do deaf people sign in tongues?"

I think the really animated ones do - standing on their head and using their toes with "digital" translation techniques, using the "C" computer language.


Do you think they will come out with an atheist expositor doing a lecture on "God in the Hands of Angry Sinners"? Probably not, as there's likely to be a good chance of a (Lake of) Fire hazard.

THAT IS PRICELESS!

I heard that the next version will come with a Bible controller and heresy setting. You set your favorite false teaching, open to a passage on the Bible controller and get a custom message. There's only a few messages between the lot of them so it wasn't really difficult. The sermon generator quotes the scripture out of context then preaches on something entirely different according to the pre-selected heresy.

I understand that if you collect Benny Hinn's hair piece, you unlock the secret preach like Joel Osteen bonus level! Wow...
