EA Won't Appeal AU Syndicate Ruling

GameSpot reports that Electronic Arts will not be appealing the recent decision that means Syndicate cannot be sold in Australia. Noting the shooter will be available in New Zealand, they offer the following statement from EA:

It's regrettable that government policy in Australia is denying adults the right to play Syndicate. The game will be not be available in Australia, despite its enthusiastic response from fans. We were encouraged by the government's recent agreement to adopt an 18+ age rating for games. However, delays continue to force an arcane censorship on games--cuts that would never be imposed on books or movies. We urge policy makers to take swift action to implement an updated policy that reflects today's market and gives its millions of adult consumers the right to make their own content choices.

The only time I agreed with EA is today. They still suck though.
