Remember, the Color toys were expensive to produce in Japan, and it was only successful because it was backed up with ridiculously huge amounts of marketing, including a new store, new fashion and toy line, and a new motion picture in theaters. Imagine trying to bring the same toy to the USA, but with much less marketing, and having the additional cost of reprogramming the toy into the English language, and then having to sell the toy at a typical $15 that the other toys usually cost. The "negative profit" margin there is far too great of a risk for ANY company to go for.
If Bandai really wanted to produce a color Tamagotchi here, they'd not only need to market it extremely well, but also find a way to produce it cheaper than the Japanese counterpart.

Why would there be such a thing on Music city (unless it was a message from a user, but you can only use preset messages)? After all, Tama-Palace did some polls on the iD for Bandai (Which is why we got what will probably be an inferior product, because the voters didn't feel like having to pay up. No offense by my comments, though, and maybe I shouldn't look for an opportunity to express my opinion)
I don't think Tamagotchi ID could come to the US, it's probably just an ad to get money
