UPDATE: Sony has officially announced the newly pressed discs will be shipping to retailers the week of October 27th, so basically the new release date is Oct 28th instead of the 21st.  Not too bad I suppose simply because one person got offended.  Regardless I had fun with the Beta while it lasted.  The depth they gave to the creating process was amazingly well thought out.  The story mode is basically a way for you to aquire the objects you'll be using to create your own levels.  I strongly recommend anyone wanting to create stuff really study the tutorials as they really help understand the mechanics of how it all works together.  Let me tell you it gets crazy.  I think Sony may finally have a system seller on it's hands.  As much as I love MGS4, it's more of a niche title, still unbelievably great, yet undeniably niche.  Sorry Snake, just because I love thee doesn't mean the world will.

Original Story:  Try to tell gamers that the Qur'an is keeping LittleBigPlanet out of their hands and all they will hear is No LittleBigPlanet For You!  Unless you are Best Buy.  Honestly my thoughts are, is the Qur'an a next-gen system?  Can it tell me stories in Full 1080P HD?  Can it rattle the room with 1200watts of 5.1 Dolby Digital MasterHD Surround Sound?  But then again, I'm an asshole.

GameIndustry.biz first reported the European release would be delayed about 3 weeks due to references made to the Qur'an by the games soundtrack, yet now it seems it's facing a worldwide recall, only 4 days from release in the states.  I'm all for respecting someones beliefs, but damn sometimes it's just crazy.  You don't fuck with religion, the proof is in the pudding and the pudding is in the chick, and now her whole life has changed because they don't believe in contraception or abortion and her vagina is pulsating from the pounding she just took.  But NO this is about LittleBigPlanet. 

Hit up Kotaku for the translation as well as a sound clip of them in action.  Pretty hard core stuff really.  LittleBigPlanet was and may still be scheduled to release on Tuesday, October 21st.  Let's pray.
