    I would assume so. It almost always works, and the few times it didn't they were online games with more complicated drm, never a valve title.

    I'm waiting and am just going to pick up the PS3 version @ gamestop. from reading, it will sync saves, play online pc/ps3, and give you the free copy. it's been hard not to pre the pc version, but i just hafta wait :)

    Try deleting clientregistry.blob in the Steam folder while Steam isn't running and then restart it. This fixes an awful lot of problems!

    Pre-order the PC version from Steam.
    Buy the PS3 version from GS.
    When the game sells out scalp the PS3 version on e-bay for twice what you paid for it.
    Sell the extra Steam version for Pre-order price.
    Rebuy the PS3 version for yourself when available.
    You just got got paid the price of the PS3 version to play the game. :D

    Stop, you can't re sell the PS3 version. I heard that it links your steam account and PS3 account somehow upon activating on steam. I didn't know, so don't go buying the PS3 version unless you want both the PS3/steam version.. I don't think you can re sell it, even privately.

    I just had that idea, but realistically they had to have thought of that scenario so it would make sense that there is some protection against re-sale.

    I was just kidding, MLG.
    If people want to try to "play" the system they are on their own.

    I just want it to be released so I can play already. :)

    @Qubit : Deleting the blob file didn't do squat for seeing the pre-load.

    Oh, okay haha. I didn't want to be responsible for upsetting anybody xD

    I love how the CO-OP is cross platform! My GF doesn't have a computer so the PS3 version will be the perfect choice for me. We'll be able to play co-op :D

    Don't worry no one gets upset here on TPU ... ever. :rolleyes: :laugh:

    I can think of more interesting things for you and your GF to do, but we are trying to keep this a safe-for-work and family friendly forum, so I'll just say that you should have a lot of fun playing co-op. :) lol

    Snide remarks aside, the co-op does look like a ton of fun, and the new physics stuff (like the gels) should make for lots of laughs.

    There is no Key.

    You will be aloud to sync your Steam account with your PSN only once and be able to receive the game that way.

    So Jailbreakers beware! I was going to do this but I don't have PSN access yet (Custom Firmware) so I'll just pre-load it on PC once my check goes through.

    yes, to those wanting to scalp the ps3 version and keep the steam version, you are out of luck. the whole reason you get both is because valve is bringing steam to ps3, so it will be linked to your account.


    I am thoroughly looking forward to the co-op in this, and also to see what modders do with it.
    it would be interesting to see 4 man co-op with custom stages.

    the only person (afaik) who mentioned that was joking ...

    still i'm sure someone, somewhere has that idea ;) how they would think Valve is that stupid IDK... but i surely want both copies :) i'm really looking forward to steam on ps3 as well...

    Most of them on the list of the Potato Sack, yes. I believe so.

    Potato easter eggs in a lot of them.

    On sale for $35 from Best Buy. I assume you will be able to register it on Steam...

    So I don't get how this works.

    For the early release. What exactly are we trying to do. Reach a certain amount of players playing Indie Games or reach an accumulated amount of time?

    Or something else?

    we're not sure yet - there are conflicting theories that it is either:

    • number of simultanious players (unlikely)
    • number of potatoes found in games
    • total accumulated time played

    If it isn't the number of potatoes earned people are suggesting that the time you spend in game (or the concurrent players count, whichever is being tracked) is multiplied by the number of potatoes an individual has accumulated.

    We'll find out soon enough as there's a massive push to fill the bar for the wonderful end of the world.
