SCEE Issues New Ship Date for Little Big Planet

October 20, 2008 -

In the wake of Friday's surprising news that the release of Little Big Planet would be delayed following the discovery of two verses from the Qur'an in one of the game's soundtrack songs, SCEE has issued a press release regarding the updated launch schedule for its terroritories:

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is pleased to confirm that LittleBigPlanet will start to appear in stores no later than the week commencing Monday 3rd November in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, on a country by country basis. We appreciate all the enthusiasm surrounding this much anticipated title and we would like to thank PlayStation fans for their support and understanding.

So did they remove the song or the lyrics? That kind of stuff is just jack-assery!!! I hate that. I am an athiest but why censor a religion? I am assuming the song fit the mood of the level or whatever. A people's religious text will influence their language and music. I find it really shameful if they got rid of it.

 

Did they get rid of it?

Re: SCEE Issues New Ship Date for Little Big Planet

I guess its understandable why Sony did this.  But you know this probably wouldn't have happened if there were Gregorian Chants or Hebrew Chants in the game.

I don't know whether Sony is at fault though, I hate to say, but when you bring up the Quran a lot of Muslims tend to get riled in a way Christians and/or Jews just don't over the Bible or the Talmud.

Re: SCEE Issues New Ship Date for Little Big Planet

Muslims do indeed consider their holy book with particular reverence.  There's nothing wrong with that, and it's quite correct of Sony to respect this belief even if they don't hold it themselves. 

The geopolitical testing is really very conservative for this sort of game. 

It would have happened if there was anything that could possibly be construed as negative about any ethnic group, any nationality, or any national flag, or if there was anything that could be taken as innuendo.

They certainly wouldn't have permitted, say, the destruction of a statue of Buddha or probably even using a church as a location (geopolitical are a lot less important in a game like Resistance: Fall of man).

mthielThis reminds me of schools a few years ago who forbade their students from having MySpace accounts. I don't mean blocking MySpace from the school, I mean banning the kids from having accounts)03/29/2015 - 5:12pm
Constermthiel, that is fucked up. Threatening to call social services on parents if you find out they let their kids play the wrong kind of video games is a suicidal move for schools.03/29/2015 - 5:07pm

InfophileSony's customer service has always been crap, but up till now it's been manageable crap. A few cases of people having to pay for being hacked at worst, the Other OS removal... This one is going to be much worse for them.03/28/2015 - 1:34pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm

MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
