Why delay the release though if this could just be patched?

I'm guessing it's like the whole hot coffee thing with San Andreas. You couldn't even access the controversial mini game without a hack, yet rockstar still had to remove it from the disc.

So seeing as you can't patch data off the disc, a patch wouldn't be sufficient.

Bugrimmar is from the Filipines, in Asia, I think.

 

 From his profile.

Country: United Kingdom

 

just to make it clear, i originally hail from the united kingdom though i'm in the philippines right now for a job. and i guess it was lucky that i did come here :P



So why not delay it worldwide? There are muslims everywhere.

Don't put this game in Resistance 2's sights. Don't Sony!

I wonder how this will affect other regions, or if for some reason it only affects Europe (which I can't see why)



...

Just got this on the web.

 

Update: We’re hearing that this may have something to so with a religious issue involving a song in the game and passage from the Quran: hit this. Thanks, Blerk.

Update 2: VG247 has confirmed that the game is already at retail both in the UK and in other European countries.

Update 3: We’re waiting for a statement from SCEE now. It’s promised shortly. November 14 is the supposed new date.

Retailers have started mailing customers saying that LittleBigPlanet has been delayed in Europe citing dates of up to a month after its confirmed release date of October 24.

Supposedly the song has been out for about 2 years and has never been offensive until now.

I also heard the artist himself is Muslim and has allowed his song to be used in the game.

Why is it such a big deal now?It was released mid 2006.

We would also like to mention that this isn't the first time something like this happened in videogames. Nintendo's 1998 hit "Zelda: Ocarina of Time" contained a musical track with islamic phrases, but it was removed in later shipments of the game after Nintendo was contacted by Muslim organizations. Last year, Capcom's "Zack & Wiki" and Activision's "Call of Duty 4" also contained objectionable material offensive to Muslims that was spotted before the release of the final games, and both companies thankfully removed the content.

WTF is he talking about? In CoD4, you would blow up stuff from muslim countries and they never released it...

And Ocarina of Time... That game didn't even contain lyrics... It's impossible for it to contain a musical track.



How many cups of darkness have I drank over the years? Even I don't know...

 

Crap like this makes me wonder how Xenogears ever got released. I heard that game pissed off many religious fanatics.
