Played both on the 360 and loved them. Was hard resisting getting them on Steam for $5, but I think I'll try my best at resisting them again

If you have a $5 promo code for Amazon left over from November/December, you can get Dead Space 2 for free. Not sure about 1 though.

The download version of DS2 on Amazon does not activate on Steam though...just tried it.

Great games. I picked up DS2 for free with the coupon I had left. More replay value due to the multiplayer aspect but it's advisable to play them in order if you haven't done so already.

Playing DS2 first spoils a lot of the better parts you uncover as you play DS1.

Yeah, both games are easily worth the $10.

$5 or FREE after the promo code, and activates on Origin.
Dead Space 2 is sold out on Amazon, but the Steam version is confirmed to work on Origin.
Wait a sec.. so if I bought Dead Space 2 in the steam store (which I did), I can activate it in Origin? Wouldn't that essentially be like having two copies of the game? For example, I could give the key to my friend and he can play on Origin while I play on Steam (offline of course). This obviously wouldn't work for multiplayer as they are the same key, but for single player it would work. Am I missing something here?

Also, why would anyone activate a game on Origin when you can do it on Steam, a far superior platform. Unless there is some DRM crap attached to the game that requires or makes it easier to install/play on Origin.

It is an EA game so it likely uses online Solidshield/SecuROM machine activations.

That's exactly it. Same with my copy of BC2, I could have just given a friend the key to play the single player.

I get this message at the check-out screen (won't even get to the paypal screen to put in my details): "There seems to have been an error initializing or updating your transaction. Please wait a minute and try again or contact support for assistance."
