Koran lyrics delay Sony videogame release

CF says Sony found out about the Koranic references when it asked customers to try out the game, �Little Big Planet�: Sony gave the game out to some players and let us know if you find any bugs. One player played the game and noticed the soundtrack to one particular level included quotes from the Koran embedded in the song and he noted that this was a bit offensive to him, as a Muslim gamer, and we typically don't associate music with the Koran. [Clip of the song]. (What is Sony's reasoning for delaying the game?) There's a heightened sensitivity that particularly large multinational corporations like Sony try to tiptoe around these issues. Another Muslim gamer said he wasn't offended by this, but Sony was worried about this blowing up to a potential nightmare.
