Homefront is scheduled to come out next month. I’ll still be very, very pleasantly surprised if they release it here.
IGN’s talks with game designer Rex Dickson here.

See, for me… the trouble is realism. I just can’t buy the premise of this game. It would be fine if the premise was supposed to be outlandish, but the feel of it is “what if this happened to you?” type of deal.
Seriously, it has as much chance of happening as Somali pirates taking over America. They probably have more petroleum reserves, anyway…
It’s available for pre-purchase through Steam. Another banned* game in Korea is Dead Rising 2 and I simply got my brother to gift it to me. It may be difficult to get the X-box/PS3 version at E-mart or Homeplus but I’m sure you’ll be able to find at your local game store, Auction, or Yongsan Market, as I did with Dead Rising 1.
* banned, in this case means unapproved by the Game Rating Board, the Korean equivalent of the ESRB. Capcom simply didn’t go to the trouble to make Dead Rising 1&2 approved in Korea (and Germany). Usually game makers simply edit the content (remember the bloodless Mortal Kombat on SNES?) to get it approved.

Banned games and movies in Korea (or any country) usually become very popular.
Lol. I just noticed it is banned in South Korea. Maybe I better pre-purchase before someone at Steam notices.
