Shock: Dead Island banned in Germany at last

In news that will surprise only people who have never heard of Germany before, it has come to light that Dead Island's been banned ... in Germany! 

Deep Silver is not surprised, gamers are not surprised, and I doubt the German authorities are surprised. The publisher hadn't even bothered to distribute Techland's zombie slasher to the country, but officials have still slapped a "List B" designation on it, making the game an illegal product. 

"This isn't unexpected," said a rep for the game. "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."

The world continues on!
