Syndicate Refused Classification in Australia

Though it seems Australia will soon be getting their long-awaited R18+ rating for adult games, this apparently will not arrive in time for Syndicate, as GamePron has word that the upcoming first-person shooter reboot has been refused classification for sale down under. In effect, this means the game will not be legal to sell, distribute, or display in the region. It is not clear at this time what game content caused this decision.

If games got censored just to sell down under, you'd be playing My Little Pony 142 instead of real games. Banning games is their bread and butter - it's nothing new.

No developer has taken them seriously as a market - for good reason, given the conditions - and by association, if a mangled, unworkable censored version gets released, it's only for a quick cash grab on the overcharged Aussies.

It's got to be pretty crappy to be a gamer there - besides being charged double what some areas are, getting to be the running gag for the rest of the world's gamers has to suck.
