No controller support WTF???
So I installed Bioshock 2, figuring I'd give it a go through Big Picture mode on my TV and there is no support for a 360 gamepad???

Ok firstly it's a port of a console game which was designed for use with a gamepad so why not keep that option, second with my gamepad plugged in I can press the middle button and get to and navigate the Windows Live options with the pad but what's the point, third the PC port of Bioshock 1 DID support gamepads!!!!

1. actually no it's not, the two were made at the same time.
2. irrelevant
3. yes, that's true, but that was bioshock ONE! The main look and feel of Bioshock 2 would have been changed dramatically if they had made it with gamepad support, as the 2k team stated when the question was brought up after it's release.

Even if the two were made at the same time the console version was still the lead version and designed around a gamepad. How would the look and feel have changed dramtically from the console version when they are the same game?

Sounds like a feeble excuse to me, They are either saying that the console version is vastly inferior by using a gamepad or that a game will actually change depending on my control method, as I've played Bioshock with both a gamepad and a mouse at diffrent points I fail to see how it dramaticaly changed that game!

yeah, but that's what they said, so I'll just take their word for it.

If you fail to see how it dramatically changed that game, why don't you use keyboard/mouse ?

I will, however I wanted to express my disappointment at the game not having gamepad support meaning I'm not going to be able to play it on my TV through STEAM's big picture mode, and how strange it appears to me when it's a game desinged for use with a gamepad and that the previous game had gamepad support.

It wouldn't have changed it dramatically, it's exactly the same on the 360, which uses the gamepad. Calling BS.

you can use Pinnacle Game Profiler and set up any game to use a gamepad

Did you not look at the store page?

Anyway you'll probably find the game boring and never finish it, I know I did.

There's significant scientific data that proves, in fact, yes: consoles are inferior.
