Portal 2 PS3/PC Steam Activation Code

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My roommate just bought Portal 2 for the PS3 but he doesn't own a computer. If I use the Portal 2 activation on my PC Steam account, will I be able to play multiplayer with him online? Or would it mean that when one of us is logged in online it will boot the other player off? And can I still play single player with my own save file? Or will the achievements and level progress always be synced between the two systems?

Thanks

Don't think you'll be able to play online with him, especially if he links your Steam account to his PSN account. May be worth a shot if you make a new account and link them but even then I'm not sure. =o

You can play single player and MP with other PC users, I'm sure of that. tongue.gif

I think you might be able to play on both systems at the same time, just not multiplayer. The achievments will also be synced.

Don't take my word for it though, that is just my best guess.

Sadly no, you cant play online with him because he will be logged into his steam account on the ps3. You can log into his steam account on your pc to play single player but cant play multi on the same account.

Edit: No it wont boot the other player off, but you cant play coop with him.

So we can both play multiplayer at the same time, just not collectively? How will this effect save files? Is there any way to un-sync both systems, even if we use the same Steam account?

Thanks
