Default One of the year's most anticipated video games delayed cause of religious groups?

Some people must have too much time on their hands...


---LittleBigPlanet, one of this year's most-anticipated PlayStation 3 releases, won't be arriving in stores next week as expected.

The "social platforming" game is already gathering rave reviews, but it hasn't proven popular with one Muslim group, which issued a complaint to the game's publisher Sony concerning one background music track. Performed by award-winning Malian musician Toumani Diabate, the song quotes two verses from the Qur'an. Many Muslims consider the mixing of music and scripture to be deeply offensive.

Although the game is already pressed, packaged, and reportedly sitting in the back rooms of many worldwide retailers awaiting its original Oct. 21 debut, gamers eager to get hold of it will have to wait at least another week while the offending content is expunged. Updated versions of the game are expected to be shipped to stores during the week of October 27.


LITTLEBIGPICTURES
"Sorry for the delay, and rest assured, we are doing everything we can to get LittleBigPlanet to you as soon as possible," commented Patrick Seybold, Sony's US director of Corporate Communications, in a statement on the company's PlayStation blog.

It's about half way down the page

I personally think it's stupid, I could kinda see their point if the artist wasn't Muslim though

It's not even "technically" removed. A patch for the game just blocks the lyrics so its an instrumental. If you want to hear it, don't download patch 1.02.

And it wasn't the lyrics that was upsetting, but from what I've gathered, qu'ran verses over music is offensive or something.

Also, Fallout 3 banned in India for the 2 headed cows being called "brahman".
