PS UK boss Ray Maguire’s told Videogamer that LittleBigPlanet was delayed out of “respect”. We like to think he said “innit” as well.

“I just think it’s about respect,” he said. “We weren’t to know that a product that’s been in the marketplace since 2006 by a Grammy award-winning artist would have this kind of effect.

“But I don’t want to see anyone upset by something that we’ve done and we have to put it right so we did put it right. I think it was the right move.”

Sony decided to delay LittleBigPlanet, its flagship Christmas game, thanks to a song in the original version containing expressions from the Qur’an.
