"Why would you buy something you already own?" It's like adding $5 to the total price of the game and I can see why some people are angry...
Yeah if it's on the disc, some one can just mess with it a bit til it's figured out, but that still leaves the PS3/360 people...

The argument regarding the file size is lost to me. In this day and age where broadband access is no longer a minority is not even an issue. I would not have had any issue what so ever had the file been off the disc and a couple megs... The presentation (which is all I can go off of as a consumer) implies it was intentional cut content being held back to charge us extra money. It sickens me to think this is becoming an industry standard.
Slightly off topic but if the "DLC" is already on the disc wouldn't that be a security issue as it would enable hackers to access and use the content?
well look at it this way it was probably planned DLC, but since they wanted to make sure everyone who had the DLC and those who didn't could play together they put it on disc to solve that problem so they wouldn't split up the MP community LBP does this those updates you have to download are content from the store when you purchase level kits and costumes your only purchasing a unlock key that's 1MB so that everyone can play together online whether or not they own all the DLC just my 2 cents if it wasn't on disc it would have been in a patch and we would have still needed a unlock key anyway
However, if the actual DLC for Bioshock 2 was on the disk but was blocked then that is truly pathetic and should most certainly of been available from the begining. The funny thing though, as people have already mentioned, is that if the file size was bigger, none of us (or few) would be suspecting it was blocked content.
Any small JPEG picture is bigger than 24 KB, so no way this is real DLC. Besides there has already been a comment by Elizabeth (p. 14 of this thread) that more or less confirmed what we are dealing with.The reason the limit is fairly small is because the packs do not add much at all and therefore don't need massive file sizes. Add to that the fact that they are likely (I'm not 100% sure on this though) compressed it's unlikely they're unlock keys.
Well, at least they have you to defend them so vigorously, but I now consider you apart of the problem also by conforming to whatever 2K does.

Well you may be someone who will just lay down/bend over... whatever position you may like, & take whatever a company does. But lets get one thing strait... Things don't EVER change for the better with your spineless thinking.
Sorry, I think, no... I KNOW you are wrong! Unlike you, I will keep fighting the good fight, & you can continue to allow everything in life to control what you get.

Don't follow it like a freakin' bible
And yeah, what about the videos? They're allowed to show extra stuff in the videos. JUST because characters are in the art book and a video doesn't mean that they'll all come standard with the game.
And, part of the problem? Enlighten me.
What Capcom did with RE5 is irrelevant. If I had bought that game I would've gone to their forum and complain. We're here for BioShock 2.
Seriously though, buying a car and buying a video game isn't the best comparison. I get what you're trying to say, but they aren't easily compared
A pamphlet would be an official piece of information from the company, too. 2K never said anything official about the 2 new characters, so you can't really hold them to that. They could have easily dropped those characters for good. Early videos of games can often be quite different from the finished product

For you to think that's right, makes you so very wrong!
after all the post i checked wat is the contend in the game and what give u the DLC. i think it should realy be in the game. its nothing where a developer team have lots of additional work. in original game u can only chose between 5 (?) charakters and 3 (?) masks? wow and level 40 sound wired
i believe the additional 2 charakters and mask where suposed to be in the game ... i belive it was suposed to be level 50 ... but they searched for some DLC-content to make extra money ...
back in my early xbox 360 time we get maps and stuff free .. for example rainbow six vegas 1 and 2 ... clothes in dead rising ...and so on ... now for every tiny thing the publishers want money ...
i thougt such additional content should please the gamers, who bought the game, for a longer time ... now they found out that u can make money with all that stuff ...
i unterstand pay-DLC when its realy an add-on to the game .... something in that developers put a lot of work after the game release ... like the episodes to GTA4
i never will buy such stupid DLCs that u cann have today and that costs too much money ...
sorry my bad english ... not my native language ...

It's already on the disc, if they didn't lock it, no download would be needed and it would be free. No one forced them to go this way.
I think that we should all chill out on this until tomorrow; I guess there will be an official statement Monday.
maybe u dont understand me ... some of the first next-gen-games had free DLCs ... there wasnt much DLCs out there ...
but for example rainbow six vegas 1 or 2 buyers get new maps free ... today they would not do that, cause they found out u can get money for that ...
