Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

October 29, 2008 -

By now the story of how two innocent lines from the Qur'an delayed Little Big Planet's worldwide launch is well known.

While the delay made eager LBP fans sad, 2P Start webcomic has some fun with the fiasco. Click here for the full comic.

GP: Thanks to sharp-eyed GP correspondent Andrew Eisen for the link.

A Hitler Sackboy is WAY more offensive to more people then a song with Quran passeges in it.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Ha ha!

It is though this fictional representation of Sony has blundered OUT of the frying pan and IN to the fire, eh chum? As though they thought song lyrics were offensive and then made further misstep by offering a less apropos gift in return!

There's sweet irony! If only the intent of the author in this delightful illustration meant as much as to exagerrate the offensive nature of this censorship inspired delay. Why, Johnathon Swift himself might delight in such a clever horror.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Yet ironically, given the choice between the two, I can guess which more people would want as a download

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Well of course, you can't do unspeakable, horrible things to a background song in the game. The sackboy on the other hand...

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

If you think that most gamers would want to do unspeakable, horrible things to a Hitler sackboy, I'm afraid you've underestimated the gaming community.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Oh come on, how freaking funny would it be to see sackboy Hitler get crushed to death by a giant star of david?

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Amusing no doubt, but I daresay it wouldn't be long until someone uploaded a level that was some sort of mix of hitler fighting his way out of virginia tech, stealing a plane and flying it into the twin towers. Sensitivity is not some peoples strong suit.

Then again your going to get that sort of thing hitler sackboy or not. Perhaps it could be the start of a series of sackboys, available next week, Churchill "we will run about flailing our arms and making amusing faces before jumping on their weak spot, on the beaches"... hasn't got as much of a ring to it.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Is there meant to be a joke in that comic strip? I think I must have missed it.

james_fudgeNo. They already cut the price. Unless they release a new version that has a higher price point.07/28/2014 - 10:19am
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, It most likely is. The question is whether Nintendo wants to do it.07/28/2014 - 10:12am
Matthew WilsonI am sure the 3ds im more then powerful enough to emulate a GBA game.07/28/2014 - 9:54am
Sleaker@IanC - while the processor is effectively the same or very similar, the issue is how they setup the peripheral hardware. It would probably require creating some kind of emulation for the 3DS to handle interfacing with the audio and input methods for GBA07/28/2014 - 9:30am
Sleaker@EZK - hmmm, that makes sense. I could have sworn I had played GB/GBC games on it too though (emud of course)07/28/2014 - 9:23am
E. Zachary KnightSleaker, the DS has a built in GBA chipset in the system. That is why it played GBA games. The GBA had a seperate chipset for GB and GBColor games. The DS did not have that GB/GBC chipset and that is why the DS could not play GB and GBC games.07/28/2014 - 7:25am
IanCI dont think Nintendo ever gave reason why GBA games a reason why GBA games aren't on the 3DS eshop. The 3DS uses chips that are backwards compatable with the GBA ob GBA processor, after all.07/28/2014 - 6:46am
Sleakerhmmm that's odd I could play GBA games natively in my original DS.07/28/2014 - 1:39am
Matthew Wilsonbasically "we do not want to put these games on a system more then 10 people own" just joking07/27/2014 - 8:13pm
MaskedPixelanteSomething, something, the 3DS can't properly emulate GBA games and it was a massive struggle to get the ambassador games running properly.07/27/2014 - 8:06pm
Andrew EisenIdeally, you'd be able to play such games on either platform but until that time, I think Nintendo's using the exclusivity in an attempt to further drive Wii U sales.07/27/2014 - 7:21pm
Matthew WilsonI am kind of surprised games like battle network are not out on the 3ds.07/27/2014 - 7:01pm
Andrew EisenWell, Mega Man 1 - 4, X and X2 are already on there and the first Battle Network is due out July 31st.07/27/2014 - 6:16pm
MaskedPixelanteDid Capcom ever give us a timeline for when they planned on putting the Megaman stuff on Wii U?07/27/2014 - 2:23pm
MaskedPixelanteIf by "distance themselves from Google Plus" you mean "forcing Google Plus integration in everything", then yes, they are distancing themselves from Google Plus.07/26/2014 - 12:20pm
MechaTama31I wish they would distance G+ from the Play Store, so I could leave reviews and comments again.07/26/2014 - 11:03am
Matthew Wilson@pm I doubt it. Google seems to be distancing themselves from G+07/25/2014 - 9:31pm
Papa MidnightGoogle+ Integration is coming to Twitch!07/25/2014 - 8:41pm
MaskedPixelanteThis whole Twitch thing just reeks of Google saying "You thought you could get away from us and our policies. That's adorable."07/25/2014 - 2:52pm
Sleaker@james_fudge - hopefully that's the case, but I wont hold my breath for it to happen.07/25/2014 - 1:08pm
