    Copies of LittleBigPlanet are being recalled from shops

    Entertainment company Sony has postponed the global release of a much- anticipated video game because of concerns that it may offend Muslims.

    Copies of LittleBigPlanet are being recalled from shops worldwide after it emerged that a background music track contained two phrases from the Koran.

    Sony says it apologises for any offence caused, and that a modified version is due to be released next month.

    The game is expected to be a hit for the Playstation 3 games console.

    A contributor to an online games forum reported the presence of the phrases from the Koran, adding that mixing music and words from Islam's most holy text could be considered deeply offensive by Muslims.

    because.......

    archbishop has got a ps3!!

    someone must of had a lot of time on there hand to listen that closely to the background music, its a bit over the top surely if it offends you simply dont bloody play it, in GTA its ok to give a '' street worker '' a slap so does that mean all the street workers can complain and have that feature removed lol

    Don't forget that this game is aimed at children, and adults *cough*.

    Sony are just covering all bases.

    FFS :w00t::roll:

    .....

    Bit of a marketing ploy by Sony methinks :roll:

    Nothing better than a free bit of advertising.

    You can buy the song. And that doesn't cause pain/hurt/suffering to Muslims ?

    It's a made up problem.

    with this game, you can create your own levels and play online, you will surely see some offending material in online play.
