Dead Island German Ban

Dead Island has landed on "List B" in Germany, as the Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons) has deemed Techland's zombie game too harmful to be sold in the country. "This isn't unexpected," Techland tells Eurogamer. "Germany has its unique regulations regarding video games and violence and the industry can only comply. Both Deep Silver and Techland were aware of such a possibility from the very beginning." EG also says GamesIndustry.biz Germany tells them "List B" is usually reserved for media depicting extreme torture or Nazi content. They say that importing retailers would be at risk of having the game seized at the border, and that publisher Koch Media avoided running afoul German law by distributing the game in Austria.
