LittleBigPlanet release delayed worldwide

 

The release of Sony's highly anticipated PlayStation 3 title LittleBigPlanet has been delayed worldwide.

 

The title has been delayed due to references to the Qu'ran on the in-game soundtrack.

 

"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," admitted the company in a statement.

 

"We have taken immediate action to rectify this and we sincerely apologise for any offence that this may have caused."

 

Earlier, GamesIndustry.biz reported the game was delayed in Europe, but it is now understood this issue affects the worldwide release of the title. Sony is expected to recall all copies of the game already shipped to retail.

 

The game was due for release next week, October 24, but now some retailers are estimating the game may be delayed by three weeks until November 14.

 

However, GamesIndustry.biz understands that the title may not suffer such a long delay to retail, and a new date is expected to be announced by Sony next week.

 

LittleBigPlanet has reviewed incredibly well in the specialist press and anticipation is high from consumers who have already had access to the beta of the game.

 

Sony has said that the game is a system seller for the PlayStation 3, and the title is considered one of the most important releases for the home console this Christmas.

The piece of music which is supposedly the offending one... and it's been available on CD for about 2 years and the band won a  Grammy for that album!

I recommend people reading the comments to the eurogamer review (they gave the game 9/10), some of the stuff being posted is hilarious:

 

"I can't believe this only got 9/10. Once again proves that Eurolamer are the biggest M$ fanboys on the planet. Call yourselves journos lol!"

 

"So no 10/10 eh?, Halo 3 is still better. MGS4 was a big old flop, and so is the "other" big PS3 game of 2008. 2008 Year of the PS3...lol, the game is a flop, it's official.

 

For all the PS3 fans that will post after this message I say this to you. Better luck in 2009, Xbox 360 beat you down and made you cry in 2008. FFXIII goes to 360, Tekken 6 goes to 360. MGS4 and LBP flop on the only review site that matters. Gears of war 2 will show you how to reach the high scores you dream of every night while you stroke your Blu-ray thingy,

 

I'm off to bed, this score is going to keep my smiling all day tomorrow, why?, because Halo 3 scored better. Every one of your tears makes me smile PS3 owners, so cry , cry like you've never cried over a review score before. Remember all the nights you looked at LBP , getting your hopes up for a good game. Well now those hopes and dreams are gone so tell us how it feels.Think of how butt hurt you are right now, let it all out PS3 owners,

 

so much floppage, this will not end well. "

I'll never understand how people can take the "console wars" so seriously.

Commercials make the game look very special.

 

It's all user generated content, isn't it?

No.  There are a load of "proper" levels in there too. :)  There is already a ridiculous amount of user created content with some fantastic gems hidden in amongst the predictable flood of crap levels full of cocks made out of cardboard and foam.  Luckily the rating system means the decent ones soon rise to the top (that's decent levels not cocks).

 

So there's no shortage of great levels to play on, but creating your own or just arsing about with the editor is arguably just as fun. And as it can create more than just the intended game levels, I can see people still producing content with if for years.

Getting seriously sick of all the fanboys now tbh. They are just everywhere, it's hard to find a gaming forum that is not littered with "OMG, HV FN PLAIN UR 360 FO TWO DAYS BFOR RROD! :lol:" just to be answered with "mackems.gif PS3 IS OVAPRICED SHIT WITH NO XCLUSIVES! MGS4 IS JUST  A CUTSENE ZOMG!"

Got it today, good fun though I got seriously pissed at one of the race levels I kept missing this one jump over and over. Haven't started a level yet but some of the ones people have made are sick.
