Now that you mention it, I realize that's a possibility these days with a couple of the bigger firms, and becoming more common now that Kickstarter is around. I've never paid for access to beta testing a PC game, and I'd never go that route myself, but I agree, the times they are a'changing, and I hadn't thought of that. Thanks!

Thanks for the explanations! Makes sense. Though I think if you're seeking someone out special for testing, reserving a code is a nice gesture to make, especially if you're running a "hey guys, here's 30 codes for free" contest immediately upon release instead of saving them for reviewers.
