Banned Dead Space

EA's upcoming survival horror sci-fi video game Dead Space has just become another game to get the status of 'Banned'.  CHUD recently was chatting to Glen Schofield, game's creator, and learned that in Germany, China and Japan the game is banned.  From the videos and screenshots, the game is fairly gory and maybe I'm shooting in the dark to say it might have something to do with it.

I'm not so surprised about Germany, Jericho and other such games have been banned there (or released in very editied forms).  Japan though comes as a HUGE shocker to me considering this is the country that gave survival horror a kick in the arse with it's Resident Evil series.  I am a bit surprised Australia hasn't popped up, but their beef seems to be more with GTA.

Good news though...CHUD also learned that the game has been pushed up to October 14!  Dead Space is going to be released on Xbox360, Playstation 3 and PC.  No word on  Wii version.
