Music on PlayStation 3's LittleBigPlanet causes recall

Posted by Billyjam, October 20, 2008 05:53am | Post a Comment
       

One of this year's most anticipated new PlayStation3 (PS3) video games, LittleBigPlanet, which was scheduled to be released tomorrow (Tuesday) has had its release date postponed due to an official diabatecomplaint by a Muslim group who objected to a song on the game's soundtrack. Reportedly this religious group issued a complaint to Sony, makers of PS3, over the inclusion of a song by Malian kora player Toumani Diabaté on the background music soundtrack. This piece of music quotes two verses or expressions from the Qur'an, and many Muslims consider the mixing of music and scripture to be extremely disrespectful.

The game was already pressed, packaged, shipped and ready to go on sale, but now instead of the new PS3 game becoming available on its scheduled release date of October 21st, it has had to be withdrawn, have the soundtrack altered, and the game repackaged. Impressively, Sony reps say that this process will only delay the shipping of the game by a little over one week, meaning that it ships next week and should be on most store shelves by the end of the month or early November. 

On the PlayStation blog, Sony's US director of Corporate Communications, Patrick Seybold, wrote, "Sorry for the delay, and rest assured, we are doing everything we can to get LittleBigPlanet  to you as soon as possible." Other artists on the soundtrack to this new PS3 game include Battles, whose music also appears in the promotional clip for LittleBigPlanet below.
