While playing Bioshock Infinite, I came across a Vigor vending machine with the 2nd possession upgrade in it (lowers cost of using possession). I didn't have enough money, so I simply passed it by assuming I'd see it again.

I've gone a long way (and now have enough money) and none of the subsequent vigor vendors have that specific upgrade. Did I miss it and will never be able to have it now? I read somewhere that the upgrades in the vending machines "stack" and once seen, they'll be available in later ones and that seems true for all of the rest, just not the one I want.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Edit: This is for the XBox 360 version in case this is a bug.

I seem to have encountered the same issue on PC. After I saw the upgrade once and didn't have enough cash to buy it, I never saw it again. – Tacroy Apr 8 '13 at 16:52
@Tacroy and HenryAdamsJr: Where did you see the first "Possession For Less" upgrade? I would like to get it at an early part of the game in my next playthrough. – galacticninja Apr 10 '13 at 9:50

I encountered this same problem on PC. Later on in the game, after the encounter with the Siren, I found Possession For Less again. Perhaps the first chance at purchase for this upgrade is meant as incentive/reward for those who grinded mobs or scavenged thoroughly for Silver Eagles.

360 version here, and I can verify it does come back in the same spot as on PC. – aviangentile Apr 8 '13 at 20:24

"after the encounter with the Siren"... – Yuuki Apr 10 '13 at 4:05
@Yawus Are you addressing this comment as a reply to me? If yes, please @ tag my username next time, so I would be notified. I'm talking about the first time you saw the "Possession For Less" upgrade, not the second time in the later part of the game. – galacticninja Apr 10 '13 at 9:53
@galacticninja If I'm not mistaken, it comes in the first Vigor upgrade machine you come across. – aviangentile Apr 10 '13 at 14:01

You first find it at Hall of Heroes Gift Shop. It'll cost you $1653. The item will appear in vending machines later on in the game.
