I'm thinking about picking up a copy of Crysis 2 on PC, and saw it for £8 in my local supermarket (a lot cheaper than on Origin) - I would love to use this on Steam instead, so can I activate the disk copy on my Steam account, or will I need to add this as a "non steam game" and therefore lose out on achievements, time played counter etc?
