My PS3 has synced save data from Portal 2 onto steam cloud, but no matter what I can't get it to show up on my PC!! And advice?

But if it doesn't, that's just an excuse for me to play the game again :)

EDIT: (Achievments DO sync, however)

I believe the save data is not compatible across platforms

Oh. I thought you were able to start a game on one, then continue on the other platform. So why does the save data sync to steam cloud on PS3 then?

For multiple PS3s. Essentially the PS3 and Computer Steam saves are incompatible. AFAIK this was something that sony insisted on.

*EDIT -- Added Computer to steam saves for clarity.

Wow, I wouldn't expect Sony to allow that :P
Playstation Plus allows you to upload your save datas so you can use them on other PS3s. But Steam has this feature that allows PS3 users to do this for free!

Okay. Guess I'll have to start over on PC!

Sucks it doesn't carry Dev Commentary access over, I'd say do the run like that. I'm actually about to start my commentary run.
