BioShock 2 PC DLC Plans Scrapped

The 2K Forums have word from 2K Elizabeth that plans to bring the Minerva's Den DLC and the Protector Trials pack to the PC edition of BioShock 2 have been scrapped. She offers apologies, saying: "We will also not be offering Protector Trials and Minervaís Den on the PC in the future Ė and I want to say that Iím sorry for the disappointment this will cause to PC players out there. As always, if any of these issues change in the future, I will update you guys first, but at this point in time I donít want to make you wait any longer and these are the most definite answers I have and you guys should deem them final decisions." A later post adds a vague explanation, saying: "Timing and technical issues were the problem." Thanks Eurogamer.

Oh, everyone look at the world's smallest violin I'm playing for 2K right here.

But the reality is, what IS the fucking point of trying to do business with people who are openly hostile to them? Clearly they tried, *again*, to give it a shot, and again the PC gaming community bitched and moaned about DLC, cried about spergtastic issues like FOV/Vsync (as if this is what makes or breaks a game), and then had a nerdrage shitfit when 2K said, "you know what? Fuck it. Let's just leave these assholes to whine and complain on their little forums and go make money with the gamers who care about things like the actual game rather than DLC, piracy, whether mouselook is 1:1, and dozens of other real or made-up issues we don't have to deal with on the more profitable (for most of their games) platforms."

PC gamers are the most finicky, vocal (loudmouthed), opinionated, and unrealistic customers in this industry. And when they don't get what they perceive to be their way? A big chunk of them just pirate games to "get back" at the publishers that they see as directly insulting them. As a business, it's silly for most companies to try and sell things to people like this.

The more you post the more your losin me.
You seem to be the very type of PC gamer that you despise.
Sure PC gamers(all gamers)are finicky, vocal and opinionated, that's just our culture on planet earth in 2010.

But shouldnt people be upset when they lay down $50-60 dollars then bring home their game just to have the mouse controls not work correctly?
The FoV not set to the right parameters? That alone can make some folks sick. The same widescreen bug the first had?

Solid gameplay is pretty high up on that priority list, lets not even speak of people's game saves being wiped and the game crashing which results in a complete reinstall, yes this has personally happened to me with Bioshock 2 three times, i now believe it's a GFWL issue but not %100 certain.

Let's take the car industry for instance, you don't think there are complete asshats who go buy new cars then take them back a week later demanding their money back cause the seats aren't the right color?
You have this in any industry, especially retail.

PC gamers are no different, only companies like 2K are getting away with their mistreatment and neglect.
