Probably has been asked and answered, but is this DLC PC-bound?

Hopefully they will be able to keep adding DLC Mass-effect style. I'm playing through the first game and really appreciating their attempts to flesh out things.

I've played through Dead Space 2 and I'm having a hard time remembering anything significant happening in that room. I mean, I remembered  the area itself cause it looks fairly unique compared to other areas but did I miss out on something there when I played through it?

It's just a major pain in the ass.  It's a huge room with lots of walkways and stuff spawns all over the place and they come up behind you a lot.

Getting this day one for sure, even if it doesn't add anything super unique, it's still more Dead Space 2.
I'm just banging my head against Hardcore mode now.

This looks kind of disappointing. Less of a new story and rather just more Dead Space 2, really...
 
Even as someone who doesn't play Dead Space, but appreciates the franchise wholly, I was interested how they might weave another story around that of Isaac's in DS2. But now that they've shown it... it's all just recycled content. I mean, slightly modified armor, DS2 single and mulitplayer map locations, Isaac-sounding voice actor, the hanging upside down mechanic (exactly the same animations leading into it, as well), and not even any new weapons... for $7. 
 
If I owned Dead Space 2, I would pass this up. As much as I believed in the team to produce something cool and original for DLC, just look at that list! I mean, it just all looks like a rush job copy and paste. =\

"I'd be more interested if there was a new weapon" - VInny 
 
IIRC he said the exact same thing about one of the ME2 DLC when they did a look on that. He seems to be all about the weapons.

Neat to see more of Dead Space2, I think it'd be quite interesting on how this crosses paths with Issac in DS2 though I wonder if this DLC ends when you cross paths with Issac during one of those times where you are just blasting everyone ever nearby with the line gun.

the guys might have mentioned that this dlc is a stand-alone. That would mean even if you are playing on PC like me, as long as you had either a PS-3 or an X-box 360, you can still play this dlc,  You are not screwed out of it, and to tell the truth, I wonder about them ever getting it to PC. They outsourced their PC side to another outfit after all for DS-2, if I understand right.
