Report: Dead Space Banned In Germany, China And Japan

Electronic Arts' upcoming survival horror title Dead Space has apparently been banned in Germany, Japan and China, according to comments from EA community manager Andrew Green, as the title's console release date also shifts forward to October 14th
Survival horror Dead Space has been banned in Germany, Japan and China, according to comments attributed to Electronic Arts community manager Andrew Green. Consumer website Destructoid says that according to Green, the game is banned in all three countries, presumably over concerns over the high levels of violence. Although EA has not traditionally been associated with explicitly violent titles, Dead Space producer Chuck Beaver recently spoke to Gamasutra concerning the challenges involved in making a push for less family-friendly arenas. It is unclear whether EA will seek to censor the game in order to have it published in all territories, with company representatives unavailable for comment at time of press. Unusually, the game has had its North American release date pushed forward twice on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, most recently from October 24th to October 14th. The PC version is due on October 20th.
