Sony’s long-awaited and much-buzzed LittleBigPlanet will be delayed worldwide. All copies sent to retailers are being recalled after audio samples from Muslim religious text the Qur’an were discovered in the game’s soundtrack, according to new reports.
“In the 18th second: “كل نفس ذائقة الموت” (“kollo nafsin tha’iqatol mawt”, literally: ‘Every soul shall have the taste of death’)… almost immediately after, in the 27th second: “كل من عليها فان” (“kollo man alaiha fan”, literally: ‘All that is on earth will perish’).”
At first I was pissed that the game was delayed. But when I heard the reason, I decided to allow it, because that is hilarious.
