well see I don't know about that, since when I tried to activate vietnam it specified a key from steam not a 'generic' key. Regardless though, I wouldn't play it even if I had it.

Did anyone else grab Mirror's Edge off the steam sale yesterday? Apparently you can have it activated on your origin account but so far the only way I've seen is to contact EA support and prove to them you own it. I wonder if there's a way to find a key to the steam version either in your registry or some other file that works in Origin?

I tried the online EA support, this is what i got:

Ambuj: Hi, my name is Ambuj. How may I help you?
2262438423: hello
2262438423: Is it possible to activate my steam version of Mirrors Edge on Origin?
Ambuj: Please provide me the cd key and your EA account e-mail address.
2262438423: the Steam version does not give a cd key, that I know of.
Ambuj: The code for the game.
2262438423: Steam does not provide a code for Mirror's edge
2262438423: What can i provide that show's I own Mirros edge on my steam account?
Ambuj: For every game there is registration code and if you have not got the code then you need to contact steam for the code.

Steam does give you a game key. Right click the game in Steam and click on "View game cd ley"
