I know this has been answered but I just want to make sure before I redeem anything. To play co-op with only one copy you need to use a separate PSN account, correct? You can't have one account playing PS3 and PC together?

Yes, you'll need to use a different PSN account. If you're attempting to give the game to a family member or something you should definitely make them their own PSN account and keep yours to yourself.

Well, I can't do anything. "PSN Server Down for Maintenance."

What, again? Anybody else getting this?

I'm having issues trying to connect as well. My internet connection is just fine since I can go online with every other device. But most of the time I'll get 'Playstation Network Timed Out', 'Signed out of Playstation Network, or the 'Error 8002A534.'

What can I do about this? I cannot find mention of that error in the Steam forums.

I think I screwed something up in the process, lol.

I had the game since launch and didn't actually attempt to do anything with the voucher until now.
I did, however, play online a few weeks ago. I don't remember what I did, but from this sticky, I assume Steam created an account based on my existing PSN info (ie, Username and e-mail address).

Anyway, when I finally tried to do everything Steam-related on my PC, such as installing the program itself, I went and created a new account (because I forgot that Portal 2 PS3 would create one for me), using the exact same username and e-mail address my PS3 game would've created anyway. And yes, the Steam site allowed me to do this.

Now, I can't link them together at all, because the system seems to think they're two separate accounts, despite having the same e-mail address and username. I can even add my PC-created account to my PS3 account's friendslist in Portal 2 on the PS3. My PC account won't let me use the voucher code because that particular account wasn't created on the PS3. I can redeem the code on my PS3.

Yeah, I think I screwed something up here, lol. Suggestions?

When signing onto Steam it has a button for "first login for PSN account users" or something like that. Did you do that??

So is the one time use code provided on a piece of paper in the box for the game? I am thinking of buying this used on Gamefly but on Gamefly they say they include any special codes since they are never used by people who rent the game. I want to make sure I'll be able to get the Steam access if I buy it from them. Thanks.

I'd try emailing Steam about it, they might be able to help you out.
