When I have children this will be one of the toys they will receive, even if that means I will dig through all my old stuff to find it.
So therefore power to Bandai for milking Tamagotchi for all it's worth.

Like others said, there is nothing too special about the V4.5 and I don't think Bandai should come out with ".5" versions; just makes things a little complicated. I hope they don't in the future!

Now that I've read all the posts, some about the v4.5, I remember what my friend said to me once over the phone. She said that kids might buy a Tamagotchi just because it's a new version. They might see the v4.5, saying "It's a new Tamagotchi!! I want it!!" despite the fact that there is very little difference in how you care for it. I don't have one but it sounds just like a v4 under a different skin.
Anyway, back ontopic about the v5.
I've noticed that as the versions go higher the advertisments tend to be focused on "New games!! New characters!!" (even if there are no new characters). On the packaging it has "Now includes 20 games!" It seems as though people have forgotten about the real concept of a Tamagotchi.
I've got another memory: I remember when a girl at school connected with my friend (the same friend I mentioned just then) a couple of times, then my friend said she was sick of connecting. Then another girl said, "She's sick of Tamagotchi!" I said that my friend wasn't sick of Tamagotchi, she was just sick of connecting, and the girl retaliated by saying that connecting is the "only" thing you do with a Tamagotchi.
Thankfully, I read the website about the Tamagotchi Familitchi Connexion and it says there will only be four games. I'm glad.
One thing I don't like about the "Familitchi" concept is that, on the older versions, your Tamagotchi is more of an individual- you get to name it (some people name their Tamagotchi from the 90s, just they have to remember the name), give it some exercise and really get to tend to its needs. Now all the characters appear to act as one (though I don't have a Famitama). I wonder if there's ever a scenario on the Famitama in which one character doesn't like the food when it's time to eat or has an allergic reaction to the food or something like that.

I'd love if they would have some sort of vibrating alarm in it, just like mobile phones - to be honest, I tend to walk around with my headphones on whenever I walk out of home, and it's not the hardest thing to do to miss your tama beeping when you have your iPod on listening to some tunes
so, yeah, vibrations would be really necessary, and maybe a color display?
on the other hand, the whole cuteness of Tamagotchis comes from the uber-simple graphics and the monochromatic type of screen, so that would be kinda risky IMO, may spoil the whole magic and all that
now what do u think?

i love them even v2 so hate ur tamas GIVEIM HERE IM CRAZY BOUT THEM! my tama and her hubby
Midnitesapphire, I totally agree with you here.
Whenever you get the latest version, less thn a week later, Banda has got a new tamagotchi out. You're thinking ''What? I've just bought this tama, and there's a NEW one out!''
Next day, all the kids at school have got one. They see your old tama and are like ''There is a new tama out, that's OLD.''
Then you've wasted your money on something useless.
I can't take it any more.
Therefore, I probably might just give up on tamas.
I got my v4 on April, now there is the V4.5
Bandai are making little kids feel left out.

Uh... I live in Australia, and the v4.5 has only just come out. I doubt the v5 is around now.
u know the famitama(V5) is coming out in feb.???? its already out in japan, austrailia ect. the V5 is almost here people!

I agree with you there. What was the point of the V4.5? A half of a version? I mean, come on now. I think Bandai should just go one version at a time, if you ask me. The Skill Points really didn't matter to me, but the characters in the V4.5 should be in the V5. Though the V4.5 is a good thing for collecters who like to collect Tamas. Otherwise, the V4.5 is useless.
I think that Bandai should of never released the V4.5 because it didn't bring new updates other than the new skill points and characters.
And yes, I think Bandai should continue making the Tamagotchi versions. They're cool to collect!

I agree that Bandai releases Tamagotchis much, much too fast. I just got my first V4.5 yesterday, ond the only thing I like is the shell design (Puzzling Piecis) and the fact that they brought back Kuribotchi from V2.
