Linking your PSN account to your Steam ID F.A.Q. (Please Sticky)
5. How do I access my PlayStation®3 copy of Portal 2 from my computer?
Each new copy of Portal 2 on PlayStation®3 includes a one-time use code allowing you access to the game on Windows or Mac through Steam.
To redeem this code, please take the following steps:
After you have linked your Steam account and your PSN ID, log in to Steam on Windows or Mac.
On your PC, launch the Steam application and log in to your account. If you created a new Steam account using the Steam Overlay on PlayStation®3, select “First time signing into Steam”, which will guide you through the first-time Steam login via your PlayStation Network account (you will then be asked if you wish to keep your given account credentials).
Once you have logged in to the account, go to the “Games” menu along the top, choose “Activate a Product on Steam”, and enter the key provided on the card included in the game’s packaging.
After this key has been activated, the game can be downloaded and played by selecting “Library”, and then double-clicking on “Portal 2”.
The PlayStation®3 game disc for Portal 2 cannot be used to install the game in Windows or OSX. Instead, your computer will download the correct version of the game through Steam.
6. Can two players play online co-op with each other using a single purchase of Portal 2 for PlayStation®3?
Only PlayStation®3 split-screen co-op can be played using a single copy of the game. When you purchase a new copy of Portal 2 for PlayStation®3, you will receive an in-box code which provides your linked Steam account with access to your copy of Portal 2 on your computer. The game is still owned by only a single Steam account--another copy will be required to play online co-op with a friend.
7. How do I redeem my preorder downloadable content (DLC) code in Portal 2?
If you were provided a code for preorder DLC with your copy of Portal 2, it can be redeemed by the following steps:
Start Portal 2 on your PlayStation®3 and log in to Steam.
Select the “Play Cooperative Game” option from the main menu.
Choose “Play Online”.
You will arrive at the ”Invite Friends” screen. From here, you may press the TRIANGLE button to access additional options.
From this menu, select the “Redeem bonus code” option, and enter your DLC code.
Preorder bonuses unlocked on your PlayStation®3 will also be available in Windows and Mac, and vice-versa.
8. How do I use the Steam Cloud features for Portal 2 on my PlayStation®3?
Steam Cloud is automatically enabled once you've linked your PSN and Steam accounts.
Portal 2 for PlayStation®3 supports Steam Cloud, which allows settings, saves, and progress to be transferable from one PlayStation®3 to another, or from any computer to another computer.
Game saves and progress from a PlayStation®3 are incompatible with other platforms (i.e. Windows or Mac). Steam Cloud data from a PlayStation®3 can only be used with another PlayStation®3 logged in to the same PSN ID.
To access Steam Cloud settings for the PlayStation®3, you must first log in to your linked PSN account.
Once you have done so, you may access the Steam Cloud menu from either the Load Game or Save Game screens
While on either the Save or Load screen, press the TRIANGLE button to access the Steam Cloud settings, where you can select the number of saves to sync. Steam Cloud will sync the most recently made saves , allowing you to pick up where you left off on any PlayStation®3.
Choosing to sync more saves may result in longer download and sync times for your save data when starting the game on another PlayStation®3.
