Automatic steam generated account name

3 posts in this topic

Hello, just some information for those of you who made the mistake of using the "create new steam account" inside Portal 2 on PS3.  Contrary to what most of the internet says, the automatically generated account is not your psn id.  It is psn_ and then your psn id.  Mine is psn_kandbw1138.  So if you are trying to link a PC account to your PS3 you will need to access that one.  It gets set up with an internal playstation email address so you will need to contact steam support to get the password.  I still have not managed to connect to anyone but I think I am actually connecting to steam now.

Thank you so much for that information! I gave up on that game 3 years ago because I just didn't know what the name of my steam account was. So I wasn't able to activate a digital version of the game and this is needed these days for playing the game online on PS3. But thanks to you I finally got my Portal 2 platinum yesterday.

Thank you so much! :)  I'd really like to give you hundreds of reputation points for that.🙌

Thanks for the good thoughts - I wish I could give you the name of the third help desk employee at steam who finally figured it out so we could both thank him.  Sometimes the cake is not a lie!
