I totaly agree, I hope this isn't the fad everyone is going to do.

I think it's brilliant, games need betas, and indie developers need money: the perfect fit.

Fir3truck2721d ago

@TheStonedSheep For indie guys it's a good fit but I don't want to see the big boys start to do samething.

No, and I think that is entirely fair, but the point I made in the article was that this is the way forward for developers who do not have a publisher funding them.

I know but we all see how the "big boys" take a good idea teh indie devs come up with and then destory it just to make money.

We'll see, I personally, think that overall it's a good thing.

Even if it was commandeered by the larger publisher, can you imagine paying like $40-45 for the beta and a free copy of the game on release?
