Sony has postponed the global release of a much-anticipated video game due to concerns that it may offend Muslims.
Copies of LittleBigPlanet are being recalled from shops worldwide after it emerged that a background music track contained two phrases from the Koran.
Sony issued an apology for any offence that its use of the backing track might have caused.
In June 2007, Sony apologised to the Church of England after setting scenes in a violent video game inside Manchester Cathedral. On that occasion the game was not withdrawn.

All of the tolerance we are expected to have.
How about our feelings to not have to listen to this crap.
How about pride in our own system of beliefs. They burn us in effigy in other places. They mock our god and saviors. They laugh at our misfortune. They play by no rules.
We are forced through sanctions to play by all the rules.
We are forced to tolerate intolerance of ourselves. Gimme a break?

I'm sure their fear was that a sufficient number of people who would be offended may buy the game and not have their console attached to the internet in order for it to be auto-patched.
You can be sure of one thing though..it is going to cost them money.
Although, any publicilty is good publicity in the gaming industry (as long as that publicity isn't reviews saying the game is sh*t)
