The game’s creator, Dean Hall, also revealed that up to 200 people a second were signing up to the DayZ alpha. “About 200 new players a second at the moment in the database... what the hell....”


I expect this to maintain a high player base just like the mod in the long term.

more expensive, less sales + Revenue. Its disgusting what PC gaming has because, you don't see this crap on consoles. I'm not interested in paying for Rockets blow and hookers.

Maybe several years ago. Those terms get thrown around a lot now and they just mean glorified demo.

Actual betas are far and few between. The last real one I can think of was for Dark Souls 2...and it wasn't even a real beta for the game. It was a network test to see how the dedicated servers would do.

Maybe you missed the part where this is an indie game.

Of course you don't see it on consoles because EVERYTHING costs $60 no matter how terrible it is. Lego Marvel was $60 on PS4/XBONE for crying out loud ($30 on PC--could be had for $20 pre-release on GMG [not that I bought it BTW]). LM is just one example.
