Just a week ago, we brought you news that Electronic Arts' survival horror title Dead Space had its released pushed forward. Today we have more even better news: the release date has been pushed up again, this time from October 24 to October 14 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PC version will ship on October 20. 

We've also been told by Dead Space community manager Andrew Green that the title has been completely banned from the following countries: Germany, Japan, and China. That's right, there's just too much survival and way too much horror in Dead Space for these countries to handle. No word on whether EA has any plans to alter the game for a future release in those territories. 

I haven't had a chance to go hands-on with Dead Space (woe is me!), but everyone I've spoken with who has only had good things to say about it. Who else is looking forward to donning the trash can-like helmet and killing some monsters?
