A lot of small developers use those devices to start with before they get official dev kits.
Developers know they arnt just for piracy. (as a homebrew user I really hate that image thats forced on us).

The problem is a lot of developers are tied into strict publishers who wont allow previews before the game is ready. Or even screenshots without permision.
Of course, developers also may be scared of early negative press jumping to conclusions over an unfinnished game.

alpha is before beta. Its an abstract distinction, but I guessed they were more at an alpha stage then beta.

I think the game needs to be seen moving to understand it more personaly.
