Since when are people paying $40 to play an Alpha game? Am I missing something here? People bitch about paying for a game that 'might as well be Beta'. Now everyones forking over $40 for an ALPHA GAME?
Not sure if you are serious or trolling

How is that a troll? He's asking a legit question. I have been wondering the same thing myself, people seem fine buying up weird little alpha games on Steam but complain about other beta games or big games from publishers. They should be giving you the alpha, you're helping them kill bugs.

They are giving you the Alpha for free bud.
People are not buying an Alpha they are buying the game and whoever preordered it got the Alpha a week earlier as a bonus.
Maybe people buy this game because even in Alpha stage it is better then Arma2 was in finished stage.

Pretty much this, since this is not a free-to-play (read pay-to-win) online game where you have to basically buy your way into an alpha or beta just to participate in beta testing what you get is basically a pre-order where you can choose to participate in alpha or beta testing the game.

I usually disagree with preorders of any sort because in most cases you never know what youre getting but Bohemia has been pretty upfront about this game and besides if you are unsure about it, you can always check the steam forums and ask the people around here who have played the Alpha.
