    SCEE has just confirmed that LittleBigPlanet has slipped because of "expressions" from the Qur'an found in the game, but has not supplied a new [URL="javascript:void(0)"]release date[/URL].

    sounds tenuous to say the least IMO...I've heard ppl saying this game's gonna be a real good'un

    lmao. :thumbsup:

    Noooooooooooo! I have been waiting ages for this!

    How on earth did they manage to put a song in to the game that has expressions found in the Qur'an!?!

    Unbelievable.

    Sony must be under huge pressure right now though that's their own fault. A launch day patch would have been more than sufficient.

    I guess a patch would be good.

    BUT you don't have to install the patch to play the game (offline anyway) so there is a possibility that someone could get offended.

    I'll have to break the news to my nipper in the morning, he won't believe me !

    It's only two phrases and the majority of people won't even know what it means nor will they take notice when it's played in the background.

    Poor show from Sony. I can't see them replacing existing discs within a week :cry:.

    I guess they could always re-open the beta or release an open demo, here's hoping.

    only 280.


    this is gonna be my 8th xbox, at least it has warrenty!

    Shocking double standards from Sony given the Resistance debacle...

    Wonder how much mines worth now then? I have a full copy promo of it

    these original copys will be priceless soon, lots of people already have this game they should keep, cant beleive there scraping just because of 2 lines in a song, when the user content (intentionally or otherwise) will be far more offensive that two lines in a song.

    Stupid reasons for delayed release. Absolutly stupid.

    I can see it being a very lenghty delay too...

    They will have to legally fight it out, and maybe even burn all copies again. Amazing.

    One of my friends on psn was playing this the other day, he got it for £30 from fleabay, I think Sony made the right choice though.

    Muslims need to stop being so uptight and a get a grip.

    May need to rephrase that.

    Wouldn't really class all Muslims like that.

    Also, every religion has the people who get up tight about anything.

    it's not all muslims. It probably just the minority of the muslims who are being overprotective of the faith.
    I agree as well that sony done a mistake. I don't think it will be deemed as faith-ist or something. Heck, the song writer is a muslim as well. Bet they are doing it to make the perfect execution of the sackboy.


    P.S happy 1000th post ajay87!

    Cheers Just noticed that after i posted

    Seems abit of a panic by Sony incase they happen to offend anyone. The thing is the song only quotes 2 lines from the Qur'an, its not like the song is slagging off Muslims or anything. It is quoting 2 lines from their holy book. Hardly going to offend anyone is it!!

    therevival.co.uk/blo…cup


    "Qullu Nafsin Zaa'iqatul Maut" and "Qullu Man Alaihaa Faan", meaning … "Qullu Nafsin Zaa'iqatul Maut" and "Qullu Man Alaihaa Faan", meaning "Every soul shall have the taste of death" and "All that is on earth will perish"




    excerpt's of the game featuring the verses have now surfaced. i shall hold judgement as to the insinuation behind it, how sony managed to make such a 'mistake' is beyond me.

    there are many slanderous things being said and done against Islam nowadays and most of the time a sensible opposition is put up. The media however always tries to potray Islam in a negative light, whether it be through the words or actions of a few ignorant and misguided Muslims amongst the vast population throughout the world. on this particular subject regarding sony i have made a comment above.

    Karim786 - Reactions like this don't help to portray Islam in a positive light though do they? And I said earlier, there have been other notable exceptions which have been brushed aside with hardly a moments thought, i'm thinking here (of my previously mentioned) Resistance FOM for one and I believe part of a Hitman game was set in a Sikh temple?

    Neither of which was allowed to cause any geniune furore...

    Way too much cotton wool being handed out these days, too many wooses IMO.

    AFAIK, these two phrases and just in a song in the background, which is sung / spoke in arabic(?)

    I don't get the offence here. I really don't. I would like it if you could explain from your point of view.

    These phrases are just in the Qu'ran. The prases are stating the truth anyway, "Every soul SHALL have the taste of death" and "All that is on earth WILL perish". FACT.

    I think the strangest thing is the song was released in 2006 and there hasn't been a single complaint in that time but now there is a fuss over it being in a game.

    Exactly. Then a couple of words from a holy book, simply stating what it says and there is up roar. It's just silly.

    Controversy for controversy's sake

    i originally along with quite a few on a forum link proved didn't have a problem. it is the fact sony made the 'error' and have now publicised it resulting in further animosity towards Islam and its followers. maybe there is a little too much sensitivity amongst Muslims, some justified and some not. i will as i have said before reserve judgment until an adequate response from a reputable authority of Islam is made, i shall not be jumping on the bandwagon and crying foul without analysis.
