I read about this last night. I was really looking forward to LittleBigPlanet, but 1 month isn't too bad.

Apparently the developer is Muslim, wanted to include the quotes and doesn't consider it offensive.

Extremists + PR machines = Corporate panic ??

Or is delaying some releases a stunt from Sony to get some publicity for the game?

Rubbish - music in Arabic is not offensive. What an insult.
