AU Shippin' Out February 1-5: Dante's Inferno

EA sends players straight to hell in its latest hack-and-slasher.

Video game developers have often been criticised for stealing ideas from films and TV, but few would have predicted that the games industry would turn to a poem penned in 1308 for inspiration. Visceral Games, of Dead Space fame, is the developer behind Dante's Inferno, in which players will hack and slash their way through the nine circles of hell: limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, wrath, heresy, violence, fraud, and treachery. Dante's Inferno is due out later this week on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with a PlayStation Portable version to follow shortly after.

Other titles to hit Aussie store shelves this week include Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers on the Wii and a new Sims 3 expansion pack. In the next few weeks some high-profile games, including Heavy Rain and Aliens vs. Predator, are slated to arrive, so stay tuned to AU Shippin' Out for the latest weekly releases.

Dante's Inferno made a lot of noise among gamers and journalists. I thinh it is one of the reason to play this unusaul game.

I just can't get excited about this game, it looks like a very generic shooter.

I'll be getting it day 1, but it will probably be set aside until I am done with Mass Effect 2 for at least a second play through.

Can't wait. I was originally just sort of watching this game, but I'm for sure going to pick it up. Sadly, something about it just sort of intrigues me.

How the heck did Dante's Inferno make it through the AU censors?

Is the AU release of Dante's Inferno butchered in anyway? Something a little bit bright for them to get it earlier than everyone else.
