LittleBigPlanet Important News

324 Replies 5,670 Views Created 17-10-2008

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.

 

LittleBigPlanet will be remastered in order to remove a track from the game that contained two expressions found in the Qur'an. Whilst shorter expressions from the Qur'an are sometimes used in Nasheeds, we are aware that the mixing of musical instruments with recognisable extracts from the Qur'an is offensive to Muslims. Therefore, we have taken immediate action to rectify this. We will confirm a new launch date shortly.

Re: LittleBigPlanet Important News

Can you confirm if this just effects us in Europe or is this an international set back?
