Much Anticipated Sony Game Delayed Over Muslim Gaffe

The release of one of the most hotly awaited computer games in the past year has been delayed over concerns some of the background music may offend Muslims. "LittleBigPlanet," described by review Web site as an "instant classic," has been pulled from warehouses after it was noticed that one of its music tracks contained words from the Islamic holy text, the Quran. The move is a blow to the Sony PlayStation game, seen as the console's first launch of an icon to match Nintendo's ubiquitous Mario, in which rag doll character Sackboy negotiates a lavishly designed world of platforms and challenges.
