Forums - Sony Discussion - It's official. Worldwide LBP delay. :'(

Name of the song if I am not mistaken is "Tapha Niang" by Toumani Diabate's Symmetrical Orchestra.

From what I read the composer of this song is Muslim himself so I doubt he allowed his song to be put in this game to disrespect his fellow people.

Can't seem to find the lyrics to this song though.

@ papflesje,,,
Look man, i am not extremist or narrow minded or anything,, but the Holy Qu'ran is our holyest thing cause it's the words of God,,, so for us messing with it or with it phrases is FORBIDEN !!!!!

and everyone has to suffer cause muslims are offended ???? Where did u get that from,, weird,,

and the "you cry and whine"" , well it seems that the only one whining here is you my friend ,, the game is delayed , live with it

I'm sorry, but.....these are the words of God? That's very general. All things on the earth will perish? Wtf? I don't care IF the Koran says it....I bet millions of book worldwide have that phrase in it....should all of those books be recalled?

How many times did Jesus say "I will return"? How many times have you heard that phrase in any form of media? Should Christians get their panties in a bunch and pull everything that says that? I wouldn't, and I'm a Christian.

Gods words huh? Every soul shall have the taste of death....there. I said it. Should I be banned now, and have my comment removed? This is just silly.

LBP doesn't have a chance if it is released on Gears of War II week...

In other news, Gears of War 2 has been announced for the PS3. Sure some will buy Gears first an LBP second, but they're a vast minority.

So who wants to bet some of the first levels to show up once it's released are going to be penis cannons blowing up Qur'an spaceships?

I spit my orange out... man that'd be a sight!

Does anyone have an idea of the quotes?

 

Yesterday a reader sent us a link to a music file containing the two offensive phrases, which can be found here. Hit the jump for the translation of the offending phrases.

The words are:

1- In the 18th second: "كل نفس ذائقة الموت" ("kollo nafsin tha'iqatol mawt", literally: 'Every soul shall have the taste of death').

2- Almost immediately after, in the 27th second: "كل من عليها فان" ("kollo man alaiha fan", literally: 'All that is on earth will perish').

I'd be more understanding if it were because sony didn't want those exact words in the game. .. Talk of death and apocalypse is kinda negative in a game like little big planet :p

guys, trying to be philosophical (and logical) in this sense won't do any good. i'm a philosophy teacher and i know that trying to convince a religious type about logic never works.

yes because a game on a competing platform will magically lower LBP sales as PS3 owners will all go to their friends house to play GEOW 2.....right??

once again....stop embarassing yourself fernando....you did enough in the NPD thread yesterday



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

@ Roma:

the bear in the cave gets angry because a sackboy poked him?... funny

I'm talking about multiple systems owners...

Honestly, I know and you know that the majority of 360/PS3 owners, will pick Gears of War 2 instead of LBP, and I doubt they will care for LBP in several months.

 

Most 360/PS3 owners wanted to pick LBP before Gears, to try it for a few weeks.
