LittleBigPlanet delayed

Heard about this on the radio today, i lol'd:

Sony has postponed the global release of a much-anticipated video game due to 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 issued an apology for any offence that its use of the backing track might have caused.

The changed version of LittleBigPlanet will now go on sale on 3 November in the UK and 29 October in the US.

They are allowed to make a song with quotes, but when that song is in a game it's bad? I don't get it.

no. it's just that when there's a chance muslims will be offended, you have to calculate the very potential risk. it's sad, but it's true. you haven't forgotten the comic issue, right?

I see what's offensive with creating new and offensive material, but I don't get what's offensive by using material that is already created and "approved".

Ok, LBP might not be the best game to add religious songs, but hey.
