LittleBigPlanet Offends Qur'an? Some Clarifications

250°
332w ago - LittleBigPlanet, going by its popularity, is Sony Computer Entertainment or SCE's biggest release this year for the PS3.

Inevitably, it hasn't had a conflict-free travel down its release path (the beta key frenzy, for instance) but plucky Sackboy and his platforming marvel has never included any controversy. So when SCEE declares its delaying LBP by a few days because:

"During the review process prior to the release of LittleBigPlanet, it has been brought to our attention that one of the background music tracks licensed from a record label for use in the game contains two expressions that can be found in the Qur'an. We have taken immediate action to rectify this and we sincerely apologise for any offence this may have caused"

You have to wonder whether this speaks of a plain old misunderstanding or honest-to-goodness fear arising from ignorance.

According to tradition, desecration of the sacred book of Qur'an is considered an offense, one punishable by jailing in some countries and death in others. This includes physically man-handling or defiling the book, along with touching it if one is not in the prayer phase.

Reeves: Sometimes it's an Advantage to be Last in Europe

Or so it seems. Outspoken Sony Computer Entertainment Europe head David Reeves believes the wait is a clear advantage for Europe at times:

To quote: People say, 'Well, why do we always get things last? Why can't we say things?' Well, I've said this many times before: sometimes it's an advantage to be last in Europe, you know, when everything's ironed out.

"This time, we do have things to say in the European [market]. We have the music service, and we're doing great things on SingStar and there's more to come. These are global announcements.

"They recognize that the [Games Convention] in Europe, whether it's in Leipzig, Cologne or London: we can do the announcements wherever. So they said to us in Tokyo, 'Do you want to do it here?' And we said, 'Yeah, we'd love to do it here.

Is the assurance of a bug-free title worth waiting up to six months? Half the time there are no differences and not to mention, those living in Europe sometimes have to wait longer for the same game patches that are released in North America and Japan. All in all, not a very significant advantage.
