LittleBigPlanet delayed after Quran blunder

Sony has confirmed that its highly anticipated LittleBigPlanet has been pushed back to an unspecified date, following the discovery of Qur’an expressions in the soundtrack.

The game was due to be released on October 24th in Europe and October 21st in North America, and is tipped to be the PlayStation 3’s biggest Christmas release, having received rave reviews from the specialist press.

A statement from Sony read:

"During the review process prior to the release of LittleBigPlanet, it has been brought to our attention that one of the background music tracks licensed from a record label for use in the game contains two expressions that can be found in the Qur’an. We have taken immediate action to rectify this and we sincerely apologise for any offence that this may have caused."
