"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.".
There is also a statement from Patrick Seybold, SCEA's Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media which states:
"We will begin shipping LittleBigPlanet to retail in North America the week of October 27th. Sorry for the delay, and rest assured, we are doing everything we can to get LittleBigPlanet to you as soon as possible.".

The freshly-released PS3 version of BioShock has a little treat tucked away within; it (seemingly) includes the first trailer for BioShock 2. Watch it above (though be warned, it's in s-s-s-s-s-hhhaky cam). If legit, the game's called BioShock 2: Sea Of Dreams, and if we were forced to give our $0.02 worth, we'd say that little sister doesn't look so little anymore. We'll no doubt see a better quality version of this sometime soon (or can at least confirm this is real, since there's always an element of doubt when it comes to s-s-s-s-haky cams); we'll update when we doVideo, of course, is included up there.
Congratulations, Tom, and thanks for the amazing job you've been doing all these years!
Unfortunately, this is due to the fact that Australia does not have a adults-only rating and that the censors still think that only children play video games. The only way that the game can legally be sold is if the distributors submit a crippled version of the game that has the offending content removed. But even if it gets released in Australia, this would not stop people from importing the game or resorting to piracy.
