Is it possible to redeem a SHiFT code on a account on PC and log in with the same account on my PS3 and still get the keys?

I seriously don't want to try it out because if I don't get my keys, I might break my CD in rage...

I assume not, they have different SHIFT codes for PS3 and PC. Don't you have PS3 keys? They usually release a key for each platform – Ben Brocka Jan 10 '13 at 16:00
I highly doubt it, crossplatform anything is a myth. – Paralytic Jan 10 '13 at 16:12
Is there such thing as "logging in to PS3 with the same account as PC"??? O_O – Orc JMR Jan 11 '13 at 14:48

As Ben Brocka stated in the comments, the SHIFT codes are console specific. If you have keys for PC, they WILL NOT work on PS3. (and any other combination you can think of between PS3, XBOX360, and PC)

If you have twitter, try following Randy Pitchford, the President of Gearbox Software, OR directly, Gearbox Software as he will post on average 1 SHIFT Code a week per console for a golden key.
