    Default LBP Delayed?

    UPDATE: Sony has confirmed the reasons for the delay, and that it is going to affect all regions, though it has yet to commit to a new release date - the full statement follows.

    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 that this may have caused.

    We will confirm the new launch date shortly.

    UPDATE #2: An official post on the PlayStation.Blog reiterated the above statement from Sony, and also mentioned that LittleBigPlanet will be shipped to North American stores the week of October 27th. No information was provided for other regions of the world.
    Who read about this? Is LittleBigPlanet really being pushed a week for such a dumb reason? I know it's a relatively short delay time, but come on. I don't know how many people pre-ordered this, but I was actually getting excited.

    EDIT- BTW, can you delete your threads with vBulletin?

    This story's everywhere. I don't know how big the outcry or controversy is cause I'm not familiar with the Qur'an, but it must be THAT serious for a worldwide recall.

    It's only been delayed a week right? That's not that bad. It coulda been WAYYY worse.

    True, but it sucks for those of us who pre-ordered and have been waiting in giddy anticipation to play on day 1. It's like if you found out that FFXIII was being pushed back a week just before its release. (at least to me)

    I want a cute and cuddly side-scrolling platformer not a bloody, gory survivor horror game.


    Spoiler:
    Can you spot the difference?
