Video games cause controversy, but this instance might be a first: Sony has had to recall the PS3 game LittleBigPlanet after a forum contributor noted that one of its background tracks contains two phrases from the Koran. Mixing music and words from that book could cause offense to some Muslims.
According to the BBC, Sony has apologized for that, and will have a revised version of the games in stores next month. Given that the company has high hopes for the game, developed by Media Molecule, it wants it out there as quickly as possible.
LittleBigPlanet lets users build their own playground levels – in fact, almost everything, from characters to textures – then swap them over the PlayStationNetwork with others.
