MANDATORY NOTICE ABOUT PRICE
Dear Steam:
I've not been paying attention to you, but I hear from little birdies you're all in an uproar over some pricing snafu. I'm here to say one loud thing and leave it at that.

$90 IS FOR A COLLECTORS EDITION OF THE GAME.
The $90 "Galactic Edition" is 3/4 on the versions available, going from a $40 pre-order "Combat", to $60 preorder game + Beta "Warfare", and topped by $200 lots of things "Cosmic" Editions. Because it is so long until the release, Steam will not take anything lower than the version with Alpha Access, Galactic, but all are available to preorder on https://store.uberent.com/Store

You are not paying $90 for "just an alpha" or "early access". You're buying a special edition of the game that happens to include it, and getting a very direct say in the development of the game (the PA official forums are very often frequented by devs and they are very open to suggestions and feedback at this stage of development. The modding community is already blossoming)

That is all.

I see, interesting. Why aren't other games so over-priced that come with MORE? nuff said.

I fine example would be the witcher 2 collectors edition - 70 dollars and comes with more than the 200 dollar cosmic edition. Oh well, your loss. :D

Don't waste your time. It's just the same few people and they're never going to admit they were wrong.
Just look at all the other gaming websites, any threads on those about the game consist of "Why is the price so high?!?" *someone explains* "Oh, okay then, that makes sense."

Er... they are. I think you'll find more collector's editions cost around $90.

Funny thing the only difference between the $40 and $90 versions is the alpha+beta access + a digital book

That would hardly qualify as a collectors edition.

How dare you bring logic a reason to the steam forums. How are all the haters supposed to B**ch and whine if people like you just calmly explain the facts to them?

I respect what you said, but you may be tring to take the fun out of the forums

That's the most expensive option yes. Their least expensive is $40. Which is $20 less than standard release prices.

What exactly is your complaint? That they're giving you more choices?

last time i check, everyone is hating on the price, and just the same few fanboys trying to make up excuses.

This.

A collectors edition gives a lot of goodies, not a pdt file.

And it's a shame that alpha access + a pdf file is considered a $50 premium.

It's not really an opinion, any collectors edition, even digital collectors editions give a lot of goodies.

This one gives a pdf file.

Well, for what it's worth, I've had a look around at the gaming sites i frequent plus a few others, and I have also seen what Mazey describes.

I agree that for a special edition, it's sort of pricey, but that's down to the original pricing being Kickstarter.
If anything the debate should be on THAT, not "omg alpha shud be like $2."

For the record I don't own or plan on owning PA anytime soon.
