Originally, this post was about how I had the title in my hands twice yesterday and my experiences with the retailers not selling it to me—but they had them on the shelves.
I guess this might be a good thing because it appears that Sony is recalling the title with less than a week to release. Why?
Somebody screwed up and included a song that has lines from the Qur’an. Apparently, this is a no no.
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.
I only have one question. A patch? I don’t understand why a patch would not fix this? One of the most customizable games ever made and it simply cannot be just turned off or told not to play?
IF “offending song” PLAY
THEN PLAY rnd(“other songs”)
(I’m not a game developer for LBP, and I know this is simplistic, but…)
I’m seriously considering taking my $60 and getting another title now. Also, this doesn’t make my experiences I had yesterday almost purchasing it all too funny.
