In all honesty, even if you do get into beta phase 1 there's a substantial chance you'll be one of the lucky few who can't even get the game to run and your participation will be limited to filling out an error report. Hardware compatibility issues are the bane of PC game development. Moreover, (barring any NDA Reverie attaches to the beta) there will be loads of screenshots and video clips floating around, so there will be a treasure trove to admire even if you aren't in.

Beyond that fact, the people who arrive in beta phase 2 will experience the vast benefits of the trial-and-error testing of phase 1, without the headache. The phase-1 testers will get to play the singleplayer game for a few weeks, but after that we're all on even ground.
