Everyone expecting the adorable world-building LittleBigPlanet to hit shelves this week was rightly disappointed when Sony announced a worldwide recall just a few days ago. Apparently, the PS3's biggest exclusive this fall contains a background music track with phrases taken directly from the Qur'an. And because the Qur'an is the central religious text for Islam, Sony and developer Media Molecule feared Muslims would take it the wrong way and get all pissy.
Not GamesRadar! They refused to send their review copy back for demolition and instead ripped video of the offending lyrics no matter what the cost. Here they present to you unaltered video of music from Grammy-award winning artist Toumani Diabate… who is in fact a devout Muslim. Think it's a big deal? Or was Sony correct in anticipating a media shitstorm?
