Dead Space 2 PC Gets all the console DLC for free; No Thanks to EA, but to edited save files

It now seems that PC gamers can get their hands on the console exclusive DLC for free thanks to an edited save game file that unlocks all the extra suits and weapons that were only available as downloadable content on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

To the reporter i wouldnt call this piracy but an unlocker >>>>>>>

its something which was already on the disc when the game was broght and EA didnt want pc players to have it wtf!, and somebody has found a way to unlock it by a game-save file so the content was already yours which you paid for.

I bought one of the DLC packs off the PSN store last night to aid me in my hardcore run and the download was only 100kb so really I was just unlocking content I already had :(, and it cost me £3.99.

The Devs obviously know that the content was in the PC version.
Maybe there was some sort of DLC exclusivity deal for the console versions,

And the devs 'accidentally' left it in, knowing that PC gamers would easily be able to access it.

Kudos to Visceral.

I don't mind that you can pay an optional small fee to unlock some extra content on PSN and Live. Because DS2 is such an accomplished game anyway with a lengthy campaign and a very enjoyable online mode, that the game is worth every penny.

Would people rather they have to go through the time of actually downloading the DLC for the console versions?

Pirating will in the future force DLC to have to be downloaded. People are simply debating semantics in order to justify what they have done. This doesn't quite for the bill though since EA stated they had no plans for PC DLC.

A lot of DLC is completed before games ship. And it isn't included for various reason on the actual disk. You have download it. All EA did was make the DLC more convenient and people are doing backflips.

Either way you were going to have to pay for it. Do you want it to be convenient or not?

Pirating content that you already have? I say making you paying to unlock content already in the disc is robbery all together.

Unlockable DLC is such a blatant scam.
