I'm still a little confused of what people gain when they buy the game in beta.
I bought it in Alpha so I know that means I paid $15 or whatever, and I never have to pay any more than that.

For beta users do they pay $20 and never have to pay again? Or do you have to pay per patch after the game comes out or what?

Stopping Power and Juggernaut.

For realsies though, according to the website Alpha and Beta purchases won't have to pay anything for the release game.

The only difference is that Notch legally CAN charge Beta buyers for additional content after release, where Alpha buyers were promised all additional content for free.

I believe Notch himself said that his lawyer advised this change and that it will likely be ineffective because he doesn't plan to charge for additional content regardless.

Alpha players -- Get all future versions/expansions of Minecraft for free, get a hugely discounted price

Beta -- Get a discounted price

Final Release -- Nothing


Although I don't think anybody will wait for the Final Release to buy Minecraft. Most people who are going to be playing Minecraft by then will probably already have bought the game.
