How is it invite only when you can buy your way in? You make no sense.

^You can either pre-purchase the full game and get access to the full Alpha and Beta, or; if you are a VG journalist etc. you may have been lucky to have been invited to play the Alpha-Lite version, which features no Co-op Missions or modifiable content, for free without having to pay.

Basically, preorder gives you gifts that you can use to convince your friends of the games awesomeness.
