What is the alpha stage in video games and their testing


I hear its the final product ("Patch 1.0"), but I've also heard it's another phase of testing like beta? Is it just when the developers go over everything one final time before release? This is just out of curiosity! ^^

    It does, aye! I often see people say "I've played since alpha" and wondered what it meant. Perhaps they meant open/closed beta, but it's hard to believe regular forum posters and the like say they've played since non-public testing ^^
