key for portal 2 comes up as a duplicate, refuses to get added to steam, have a complain open with them, wondered if there were any tips from people who have delt with this before.

This should be a new key, was perchased from the Game websight, packet was sealed when arived ect.

Pretty much there's nothing you can do apart from contact Steam - standard procedure in cases like this is for them to ask for a picture of the disc and receipt, and once you give them that they'll add a copy to your account. It's a bit shit but nothing particularly painful.

You haven't mentioned where you purchased it from, are you sure the site is legit?

pretty sure the UK game webpage is legit.

Yeah, Ansob's right. It's pretty simple to get this error fixed, and they'll likely get back to you pretty quickly.
