I think you should expand this a bit.  YES I would pay but if it lead to rushing the program then NO I wouldnt pay.  I would pay if it helped the crew, I wouldn't pay if it put more pressure on them to produce a lower quality product just because I cant wait a few more months.  In the end I would rather wait 6 more months and have a great product than get one next month and have it broken from the beginning then have to wait for patches every day or week (Sword of the Stars 2 anyone?).

No, because I get to Beta test it.

Also, its FREE for everybody who already has Ubox2, so there.

In all seriousness though, I'd rather have a well polished quality Ubox3 than a low quality one.

I wouldn't pay, Dan is being generous with US3 being free for US2 owners so I'm accepting that.

it's not really a matter of paying; dan can't just pull code out of his armpit, it takes time.

exactly, coding takes time. and while he and the team could be doing it faster it would probably mean lost sleep, meals, sanity breaks, and other stuff.

And a decrease in the quality of the program.

why do you doubt it if you get a very early version of the beta, which you won't, there are probably going to be many updates.

I plan on buying UB3 anyway, so even if it was a pay-to-beta-test scenario, I'd be fine with putting up money early if it meant I would get the final product as well.

Anyway If We Want It Early Or On The Release Date, We Will Still have to pay for UBOX 3.
EVEN IF YOU HAVE UBOX 2 AND WANT TO UPDATE TO UBOX 3!
