Just a bit earlier today
LittleBigPlanet Patch v1.01 was released, and now v1.02 is also available. It's confirmed this revision does remove the entire vocals for the track containing words from the Qur'an... essentially turning it into an instrumental once applied.
To quote: This one does neuter Tourmani Diabate's song "Tapha Niang
", silencing the two lyrics borrowed from the Qur'an, putting the game into the state it will presumably be when you all get hold of it in two weeks' time. In actual fact, it removes the entire vocal track, leaving a pleasant instrumental.
There's no word on what else the patch does, but then you won't notice, since the game isn't out yet. Unless you're in the secret club, obviously, in which case you can join us sulking about how the game servers aren't online yet. More PlayStation 3 News...
