2K Games and Firaxis Games announced today that the Slingshot Content Pack, the first add-on content for the critically acclaimed XCOM: Enemy Unknown, is now available for purchase for PC, the Xbox 360 and PS3. The Slingshot Content Pack is available for $6.99 (PlayStation Network) / 560 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE) / $6.99 (Windows PC).

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
