This is a statement that I have seen thrown around by people when a game releases and is in piss poor shape.
But it got me wondering. If a company (lets go indie or non AAA.) was developing an MMO, and due to whatever reason they needed cash (for this topic lets assume they did not want to sell out to a big gaming company, or Kickstarter was truely not enough to get it done.)
It was a game that you enjoyed playing but could clearly see that it needed work. So they decided to start a paid beta. Fully disclosing the reasons why they were trying to do this, and to what the money would actually be going for.
Would you pay to beta?
Personally I think for the right reasons I could see myself paying.
