Anyone want 75% off Portal 2 on Steam?

#1 Posted by Jedted (2390 posts) -

Don't know how many people got this coupon but if your one of the few people that don't own Portal 2 on Steam then mine's up for grabs.

#2 Edited by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

Same here if anyone wants one.

Edit: Though my coupon doesn't have a gift button unlike the others I have but it does say it is tradable.

I hope you and your friends enjoy yourselves . Portal 2 is a great game.

Yo i just got one from my friend but i have 2 friends that really want the game if you guys really don't want them i can take them and give it to my friends

I'm guessing no one knows why they are being given out.

#5 Posted by HadesTimes (811 posts) -

Mine doesn't have a gift button either but it is tagged as tradeable. Could someone enlighten me on what this means. I want to give it to someone who doesn't have the game.

#6 Posted by robb543 (5 posts) -

They were given out so valve could make more money

#7 Posted by robb543 (5 posts) -

Well say if you were in a chat with me i could click a button to start a trade and then you trade what you want

The coupons were given out since they just added the ability to create and play co-op levels in the level editor. Everyone who owns the game got one to get more people playing co-op.

As for them not being giftable, they're inventory items. You just right click the person you want to give it to on your friend's list, hit "invite to trade" and drag the item from your inventory into the trade field and hit accept. Then with the coupon in their inventory, they add the game to their cart just like they were buying it normally and it should automatically apply the discount. You could also do it yourself. Whoever has the coupon on them gets the discount so you could buy the game and gift it to them too by hitting "purchase for a friend" at checkout.

Thanks for the info, I've never actually traded anything on Steam before.

I have one if for anyone who wants it.

@Dragon_Fire: A Valve employee on the Steam forums said this "We just released co-op support for both the editor and the Workshop, so we're giving everyone a coupon to pass along to a potential co-op partner" . Link to thread.

That should answer your question.

I also have one to give out. Add Live2bcool on steam if you want it. First to ask will get it.

Valve have updated the Chamber Editor so it can now make multiplayer chambers. But lets face it, it's really so you can give it to people who preferably don't have Steam installed yet. It's a clever way of attracting new customers, like when portal 1 was free for a week.

hi guys my friend and i would really appreciate it if we could have a code each. i played the first one and got the second on ps3 but since he is a pc gamer (me too though at the time i was more focused on console) i could really use the codes to convert him into a GLaDOS fan :P anyways our steam accounts are trolazote and lioknight

THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE :D

Edit: No more coupon.

#22 Posted by Robiin (297 posts) -

I also have one, with no real need for it. Anyone wants it, it's yours, just send a friend request to illusionffs and tell me your a Giant Bomb user.

#23 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

I'm giving away my coupon as well. Add me if you're interested - wrongwayassassin.

#24 Posted by buft (3320 posts) -

I got the coupon yesterday, i thought it was because i bought a multipack of portal 2 during the sale but luckily i was able to put it to good use as a friend of mine didnt get the game and actually wanted it, £3 is not a bad price by any stretch

#25 Edited by gelfiusm (1 posts) -

#26 Posted by indieslaw (354 posts) -

#27 Posted by tread311 (357 posts) -

Yep I also have one that I don't need. Same name on Steam, let me know if you want it.

#28 Posted by ashogo (943 posts) -

This would be a pretty cool deal if I didn't already buy Portal 2 for crazy cheap during the steam sale. I need to get to actually playing it now.

#29 Posted by Potts (159 posts) -

I've got one too. I don't think anyone wants it, because anyone who wants it already has it.

But hey, PM me if you want it.

I want that :/ my steam is solokhaled

#43 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

@kldahmd:

I'm fairly certain that all of the 75% off coupons expired at the end of September 2012. Valve games are always going on sale, so keep checking the Steam Store and you should be able to snag Portal 2 for $10 or wait for the Summer Sale and get it even cheaper.

#44 Posted by jimbosnipe (1 posts) -

hey if anyone has a code i would love one. My Steam Name: NIGHT TIG3R 13

please send me an invite and i will respond asap if you do have an extra thanks!
