DCS: Combined Arms Pre-Purchases

The Digital Combat Simulator Website now offers pre-purchases of DCS: Combined Arms, saying those who make this advance commitment to the action/strategy hybrid will also receive access to the beta version. Here's word on how this will work: "Play DCS: Combined Arms as a real time strategy game, a first person armor warfare game, or direct the ground battle from the cockpit of a DCS aircraft like the A-10C Warthog, Ka-50 Black Shark, or P-51D Mustang." This trailer shows off a pre-alpha version of the game.

What do you guys think of the "Preorder and we'll give you access to the beta!" stuff? Lots of games seem to be doing it these days (ex: Endless Space, GW2). I guess folks are free not to preorder, but it just seems silly to me to use beta access as bait for preordering. "Pay for your new car six months in advance, and we'll let you drive it around early UNPAINTED!"

In this case, it's not bait. People want their sims, and they want them now. If a missile has buggy code, sim gamers laugh about it and just wait for the patch, knowing that it's a beta, and the same things happen in real life (but just aren't fixed as easily).
