New Sony Game Delayed

Release of the new Sony PS3 game LittleBigPlanet has been delayed. Yeah you might have guessed it may offend muslims.

Entertainment company Sony has postponed the global release of a much- anticipated video game because of 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 says it apologises for any offence caused, and that a modified version is due to be released next month.

The game is expected to be a hit for the Playstation 3 games console.

A contributor to an online games forum reported the presence of the phrases from the Koran, adding that mixing music and words from Islam's most holy text could be considered deeply offensive by Muslims.
