Team X-Box is listing a game called I Am Alive under its upcoming survival horror games category here. Read more about this game on Wiki here.

Heavy Rain: The Origami Killer for the PS3 is on the table. Read more about the game here on Wikipedia.

Regarding Siren: Blood Curse - as the Wiki page says,

Siren: Blood Curse, known in Japan as Siren: New Translation, is a stealth-based survival horror video game developed by Sony Computer Entertainment's Japan Studio for the PlayStation 3. It was released worldwide on July 24, 2008, in BD-ROM format for Japan, and on the PlayStation Network for North America and Europe.

Silent Hill Homecomingl

Silent Hill: Homecoming (pictured on the left) was released earlier this month. Obscure 2 has been in stores for a few months now.

Dead Space (pictured bottom right) also came out recently.

Dead Space

From what I've seen so far, Dead Space looks like a cross between Doom 3 and Cold Fear, so I don't know if I'll bother to play it (even though most folks have been giving it wonderful reviews).

There was a game for the Wii entitled Escape From Bug Island that was referred to as "survival horror" by some media, but I don't know-

I don't own a Wii and haven't played the Espace From Bug Island game, but I find it hard to believe something with such a title can be considered 'survival horror.' I don't know if I'll be adding it to the scary games list on the site.

Other horror titles for the Wii (either already released or in planning stages) include Cursed Mountain, House of the Dead: Overkill , Obscure 2 (also known as Obscure: The Aftermath), Calling, Resident Evil 4, Fragile, Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse.

Silent Hill Origins

Silent Hill Origins has been in stores for about a month or so now. It is available not only on the PSP (Playstation Portable), but also on Playstation 2.

I usually do not cover handheld games on this site, but I thought I'd mention a new release for the Nintendo DS called Teenage Zombies.

Teenage Zombies

From the looks of the box and based upon its description on amazon.com's page, Teenage Zombies looks more like a "cartoony" experience than a more serious, horrifying one.
