The Wii version will run $39.99, while the Playstation Move-enhanced PS3 version will retail for $49.99.

My first reaction reading this was: can I get a non Move-enhanced PS3 version for $39.99 ?

Considering PS3 games are $60 at launch, $50 is pretty good. Aside the Move capability, it looks better too, having seen both at E3.

For anyone who hasn't seen the article Tides of Destiny is out on September 27th.

In the last decade and a half I can honestly say that not too many JRPGs, that I've had an interest in,has slipped by me... Harvest Moon/Rune Factory has however....... That being said, this game looks pretty freakin' cool to me :)

So my question is should I just jump right in here when it comes out or play some priors in the series first? That is, are they standalone titles? If so whats worth my time and what is not? Anyone who could provide me some insight would be much appreciated :) Thanks

It looks like they're mostly stand-alones but with some characters from Frontier making a comeback in Tides of Destiny.   You might get a little burned out playing both one right after the other, but Frontier is worth getting.

It'd be a waste of effort and more costly to make two versions over a bit of data that could harmlessly be in all copies. You can however get a non-HD (AKA the Wii) version for 39.99, though I guess you noticed that... Which I may do, depending on how much the wands add to the game.

Nobody seems to have said so, but the game actually came out on the 8th instead of the 11th for some unknown reason.
I'll probably go get it this weekend as I can't say no to a game with beaches and hoes.

I've had it for a week.  I've got the PS3 version and you don't need Move.  A regular controller works fine. 

Anyone who liked Frontier will dig Tides of Destiny as well. 

There are some good changes and some bad changes but overall it's great. 

The good: I love the island exploration and the quests.  The farming is much easier and less time consuming, which is great IMHO.  You can farm all crops as long as you have tamed the monster that plants them, no matter what the season.  You can farm minerals, crystals and gems.  Overall, it's more difficult in terms of the combat and getting to the final floor of the dungeons. 

The bad:  Despite liking the overall difficulty, some of the attacks are cheap.  Sometimes it's not obvious how to advance the story.  You can't ride monsters or bring them into town but can fight with three at a time.  The combat controls aren't as good as Frontier though.

Think OP meant Tides of Destiny for thread title.. I was about to make a new thread.

Just picked up Rune Factory Tides of Destiny for the PS3 this weekend for me and my wife to play thru.  I have been looking for Rune Factory Frontier for the Wiii for awhile with no luck, so was happy to find this (last copy) at my Gamestop. So far the game seems really good, I don't know why it seems to be such a niche or unpopular game style. But I think this and the Atelier alchemist series of games are a really good change of pace for me.. and my wife loves them.

I love how things are laid out in the game, its pretty cool how you ride a giant golem to discover islands in the ocean to gain items, pets and components. Sure combat is pretty simple but I love how its all skill based and you can level up pretty much everything to customize your character to the way you want. I am only a few hours in so I am looking forward to getting deeper into this one.

'Oceans' is the original Japanese subtitle and this thread was started before an internation release was even confirmed, so...
