No pad support for BioShock 2 PC

2K would need to redesign UI, apparently. 

2K has delivered the rather unfortunate news that BioShock 2 PC will never support the Xbox 360 controller as a means of play.

"I talked to the dev team about controller support for BioShock 2, and I want to let you know that we won't be adding this into the game in a patch," wrote a community bod on the 2K forum (via Kotaku).

"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.

"I'm 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."

BioShock 2 is out now for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. See what we thought in our BioShock 2 review.

UPDATE: Oops, we actually knew about this already. Sorry for the repetition.
