That's not right coffecat, there are several restrictions to the community alpha:

a) you'll need a computer to play it

b) you'll need an internet connection to download it

So at least 66.3% of the world cannot play the ArmA3 alpha. That's nearly two thirds of the world!

Does this mean that the community alpha is actually an open alpha? :D (I already have ARMA 2, OA, BAF, PMC... but not TOH or ACR.)

We've been told that everybody is allowed into the alpha, so I'd say it's open.

Because its very comon that betas are MP only.

Those aren't betas, those are MP only demos with the launch bugs explained away.

an alpha needs more developement than a beta. so the gamma verion is the one that is the last version? is it the greeks alphabet or just a coincidence...

lol what ^^? Alpha < Beta < RC < Release version. There is no gamma version in the software/gamming industry whatsoever.

I'm just happy to have stumbled upon ArmA 1 & 2 on Steam in the first place. That was this last Friday, 8/3/12. Played demo and I am now hooked. ArmA 3 is looking mightily sick.

Think of ARMA 3 as *ahem* "an ARMA that's (finally) in the 21st century"!

@Ekko: Welcome to the diabolical world of BI's anti-marketing campaign.

Best!

It works for sure fire arma supporters. But im surprised bis don't get more ambitious. Their recent successes show whats possible, and now that they have momentum and a great sequel coming up theyd be smart to run a strong marketing program for some key segments of their global audience.

Strong marketing is for people who make shit games. Those money are better spent elsewhere.

I think what he means, and I'm not normally in the business of interpreting metalcraze's ramblings, is that strong marketing is sometimes indicative of a poor game and in that case, the marketing budget would have been better spent making the game better.
