No BioShock 2 Gamepad Support

After recent outcry and a petition asking 2K to add gamepad support to BioShock 2, 2K has responded saying they will not be adding support for gamepads to the underwater shooter sequel. 2K Elizabeth made the following post to the 2K Forums: "I talked to the dev team about controller support for BioShock 2, and I want to let you know that we wonít be adding this into the game in a patch. The decision not to support the controller was not made lightly, and to add it now would take a complete re-envisioning of the UI that the team worked so hard to create. Iím sorry for those of you who are disappointed, and I want you to know that your comments and concerns have been heard and will be taken in to account when we are planning in the future." Thanks nin via Kotaku.

One thing that I've found ironic for years is how Crysis, poster boy of top of the line PC gaming, has great 360 pad support. The problem is that the game doesn't do the usual extreme autoaim of the consoles so while u can control everything pretty well, you can't hit shit.

We've had joystick support in shooters way back to like Doom though, so it's not new to PC at all.
