Earlier today, we picked up a report from Destructoid saying that Electronic Arts' Dead Space (PS3, Xbox 360, PC) has been banned in three countries in Europe, namely Germany, Japan and China. However, the publisher would beg to differ.
According to Eurogamer.de, Electronic Arts has clarified to them that the report on the bannination in Germany is not true at all. Rather, it is still awaiting classification from the USK. That is by no means equivalent to being banned.
As for the two other countries, Japan and China, EA did not say anything about them so we could more or less hold that bit of the report true -- for now.
