Dead Space 2: Bavaria wants to stop German release

Bavaria, a state in Germany, has decided to veto against the 18+-rating from German classification board USK. That means, that the rating board hast to repeat the testing process. USK has to rate Dead Space 2 again - for the sixth time, as EA rep Olaf Coenen told PC Games in a press release. Therefore the release of Dead Space 2 at the end of January 2011 not only is in jeopardy, but USK could decline a rating this time. EA started a petition to protest against this unheard-of development. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Dead Space 2 is a highly disturbing and violent game. I recommend no one under the age of 2 play it...and Germans.

I bet Germans also banned the Boogeyman from entering houses. Booga booga booga!

Velocitygamer are you an idiot??!??! You can't ban the boogeyman...that's like a legendary creature. There is no government regulation for something like that.

one state isnt going to prevent the game from being sold in all of germany. look at all the games that allowed you to play as the nazis that got released in germany. You think they are going to ban dead space 2 cause its a little 2 disturbing for them when they can tolerate people playing as nazis?

I won't go into what the nazi's did, or the ss squad. It's actually alot worse then ds2.

But seriously games like this do need to be banned from children. I know alot of parents let kids play GTA4,COD black ops. And i mean kids. This is a horror game and meant to scare.

But to ban completely is stupid.

I hope this doesnt happen. This is looking to be a fantastic game.
KUV1977  +   1337d ago
Games like Prototype were never released here, and Dead Space 1 was rated a bazillion times until they let it through. Usually they cut games so hard you have to import them anyway - so it would have been almost crazy had they admitted DS2 instantly. The German rating board is seriously strange.

If Germany was still controlled by Hitler this game would have been released.
