You know it's a great survival-horror game if it got itself banned in three countries. It seems Electronic Arts' Dead Space packs a bit too much gory punch as it's been banned in Germany, Japan, and China. Well now I really want to get my hands on the game already.
Electronic Arts hasn't made any announcements on what it intends to do about it yet. I wouldn't have expected a ban from Japan though, seeing as they gave us The Ring and The Grudge. You'd think they'd be fond of games that wouldn't let you sleep out of fear.
Dead Space has been moved up from its original release date, and will be released on October 14 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PC version will follow on October 20. I'm looking forward to seeing Dead Space alien/trash-can helmet costumes this Halloween.
