The Dead Island FP Page released a couple versions of their game pack shots for XBox, PS3 and the PC.

Why the two different versions?

Check out the logos, specifically the "I" in "Island."

The initial version (first pic), which will be released in the UK, shows the hanging man.

Well, that didn't sit well with the U.S. video gaming censorship commission, ESRB, who forced them to change.

Guess, they know better than you and me.

Dead Island™, the upcoming gruesome zombie slasher by renowned developer Techland, combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of a vast array of weapons. All of these gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.

Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on utilizing found items as weapons for self-defense and fight off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player's ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction.

Dead Island will be released worldwide for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC later this year.
