On the possitive side, you got a PS3 game a lot cheaper than normal.

How does that even happen. You gotta be kidding. There's no way.

Except in Canada, both PC and console versions of Skyrim are 59.99$.

I'd love to think whatever store you bought this from swapped the discs just to fuck with you.

@konig_kei: looks like a screenshot from Kung Pow.

But yeah that is a pretty silly mistake on the behalf. Kind of reminds me of Patrick's accidental troll to Jeff and Ryan over Skyward Sword.

You have the steam key so you can download it and you can play it on a PS3 if you have one. You win!

You have the CD Key, which is what you need to register the game on Steam, and a copy for PS3. Win-win if you ask me.

Did you try registering the cd-key on Steam? It may work...

The game is STEAMWORKS, right? Just register the cd-key on Steam.

@Djratchet: you don't want the PS3 version. it's poison. I just stopped playing skyrim because the fps crap just got to me. I have no desire to even touch Skyrim now.

@konig_kei: Eh, I've toyed around with it for about 5 hours, hadnt had any real problems, but I guess the real issues start around 50 hours in from what I hear. I'm hoping they get around to patching it up soon

What in the world? Well, at least you have a CD-Key. Go back to the store or wherever you got it, then demand to get a PC copy if downloading takes too long.

I considered doing this, but then I don't know what happens to my CD-key. I've activated it already, so if I return it, does Beth/Steam revoke that key?

@stratzilla: If you have already activated the key, it's gonna stay with you as they can't know that you've taken it back.

What ISP do you use that it takes forever to download 6gb? I use Shaw and that would take like 2-3 hours.

That's 1.6 MB/s or so, yes? That's a couple of hours max.

My god, their top tier service is worse to Shaw's basic tier and double the price. If you're in Ontario you should think about switching. If you're in Quebec, well...

I live in Niagara region. Only Rogers, Bell, and Cogeco are available, although Cogeco has a monopoly with ISPs. Bell and Rogers are expensive as hell and are slower than Cogeco.

Rogers is OK speedwise but expensive. Internet up here is a ripoff. I have the "Extreme Plus" or whatever it is one step below their Ultimate package -- Euroduders would laugh or cry looking at my bill and bandwidth.

Get off your high-horse (don't mean to be rude). Shaw's "High-Speed" Internet option is 7.5Mbps with a 125GB cap for 42$/mo, whereas Cogeco's "Turbo 14 (the one I have)" option is 14Mbps with an 80GB cap for 43$/mo. Shaw's BEST option is 25Mbps and 52$/mo., where Cogeco's best comparable option is 30MBps at 59$/mo. They are roughly the same (except Shaw has better bandwidth caps).

What? Shaw's Basic option is 50mbps with a 400GB cap for 60 a month. And Shaw's best option is 250mbps and NO cap for 120 a month. At least over here in Alberta.

Sorry, but I don't know if you can return it if you used the CD key, you can lie and say you didn't use it but i dont think beth or steam will revoke your key

Or maybe just try to borrow the disc from someone for installation? They can't be tied to the key or anything. Getting the pc key and the ps3 game really is a better deal than just getting the pc game :)

Fuck, you got two copies of the game for the price of one. All you need for the PC version is the Steam activation key. I don't know why you're not satisfied.
 
Also your ISP is waaay faster than mine.

@stratzilla: I would either, take it back and save time on downloading it, or download it and sell the PS3 version for money.

Option 2 would turn this situation into a financial gain, but would cost you your time. Option one lets you play your game faster, but no monetary gain.

I bought it on PS3 and after a few days the framerate really pissed me off, so I just bought it on Steam.

I'm in Central Ontario and with Rogers. My average download speed on Steam is something like 1.5mbps.

My cap is 60 gigs a month, though. Sucks.

I've opened up a copy of a game, sealed in plastic, that had no disc inside. Sometimes packaging just fucks up. The store should be able to get you the right copy.

It would take me about 4 hours, and I have a pretty damn slow connection, even for Canada. Just suck it up and download it, you pretty much got a free game.
