LittleBigPlanet Discs To Be Recalled - Globally

LittleBigPlanet LittleBigPlanet LittleBigPlanet

We can hardly believe it, but the latest news in the LittleBigPlanet delay story is that SCEE has confirmed all shipped LittleBigPlanet units are to be recalled on a global level thanks to a licensed track in the game containing two “expressions” from the Qur’an. Original info was pointing to a Europe only recall but confirmed reports state it's worldwide.

The funny thing is, the guy who wrote the song and put in quotes from the Qur'an is a Muslim artist. And other Muslims are offended by anything that sets the Qur'an to music.

Sony probably did the right thing. I don't think they deserve all the hate they're getting for it, and Islam certainly doesn't deserve all the bigoted comments it's getting because of all this.

People can wait another week to play. It's not that big of a deal.

I suppose it's the principle that folks are mostly upset about.
