PC not to get latest BioShock 2 DLC

Written by David Stellmack
2kgames

Despite promises, it isn’t going to happen
Those playing BioShock 2 on the PC platform have been patiently waiting for the arrival of The Protector Trials and Minerva’s Den, which are the latest downloadable content packages for BioShock 2. While they have been released for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for some time, PC BioShock 2 fans have just had to wait.

Now 2K has announced that despite the fact that PC BioShock 2 players have been waiting for this content for so long, they need not wait any longer, because it is not coming. Yes, that’s right:  it has been canceled for the PC platform and The Protector Trials/Minerva’s Den will not be offered as DLC to PC users.

2K made the announcement in a posting in the PC BioShock 2 forum, and despite their apology and acknowledgement that they know that PC BioShock 2 fans will be disappointed, they didn’t provide any specific reason as to why the decision was made to pull the plug on the content for the PC release of the game. Rumors of poor sales on the PC platform seem to be the main reason why many people believe that it was canceled. Of course, 2K will not confirm if this is actually the case.

Why is it dying again? Your comment is so vague. PC is not going anywhere. Both the PC and the Consoles can both coexist.

Ok go into a Game store then next time you are passing one.Take a look around.Shelf after shelf of Console games.no more than 2 racks now to PC games software.If that is not an indicator of the state of the PC Games Market i don't know what is.The PC is not dying.Just the market for games on the PC.Makes the next gen of high powered graphics cards coming out from both the Green and red teams a bit Superfluous now doesn't it.Really going to need one of those to get the most out of MMO's like World of Warcraft now arn't we.

I'm with you on that... and since I'm from EEU... I also buy them from an online store, get them shipped from the capital to my hometown via courier.

But the future is Steam, definitely.

This is more of the same. The PC is the bastard child of gaming. If it were a console it would've been dead along time ago! Instead they just slit its throat and let it bleed out. Its become a dumping ground for sequals from the big companies who can afford the losses. But the innovation has moved away from the platform long ago.

Everybody is screaming "Steam" like its their messiah. Its a poor man's version of Xbox Live! But Steam only sells what is available! They won't be getting the Bioshock DLC! So much for "Steam". Gabe Newell (is that his name?) called on the PS3 to become open after critizing it! He's a hypocrite who sees the writing on the wall as well. I like the PC, but if you want to "game", then get a console.

Uh. Ok.

steam is the best thing for pc gaming. it would be for all gaming, but console gaming really sucks ass. It is low tech 4-5 year old graphic dx9 technology.

IF I want to buy 60 dollars plus tax games that get boring in less than 3 days I surely will buy a console, thanks for the suggestion.

Get a good pc turn up the AA and all the game details and omg it looks 10x better. Both coexist the problem is the consoles are holding back PC games because they are stuck in dx9 and companies need the profit right now so they go multi-platform and then don't add enhancements to the PC version even though it can look much better. A DLC goes for 15$ which is a complete rip off so if the future to you is spending money on top of buying the game sometimes just to get the finishing story or play online, great go for it. Both coexist, and PC games will never die. Starcraft II is an amazing game, so is Metro 2033. Diablo III will be great. Annoying to MMO on consoles. Oh and steam gives some good discounts. Gabe Newell didn't bother with PS3 cause it wasn't popular yet, now it is.

Steam is a poor man's version of Xbox Live, thats sell PC games for $60 or whatever retail demands. Nothing more. Cheap PC games? There are cheap console games. Anybody can buy games outta the bargin bin. The return on your investment with the PC is dismal. Very expensive hardware that needs to be constantly upgraded just to play the same DX9 games that the consoles play easily. Its a joke. How many cards, chips, and boards have you owned in the 5 years the Xbox has been out? EXACTLY! A ripoff. Add in the lack of decent content, the piracy, the cheating, and the backhand of the industry, and you have an expensive, weezing, niche platform that is not really worth the consumer dollar.
