Bandai has mentioned a new Tamagotchi for 2010, called "TamaTown Tama-Go"
Here's a link to a topic about it: http://www.tamatalk....howtopic=166581

Actually, e-tamago is a website and ura-tama was the japanese alternative to V4.5

I hope it's removable or something (given that it's a prototype, it probably will have something like this, or at least be shaped better), because as cool as it sounds, and as much as I'm looking forward to it, it's just... yeah.

What Bandai should release to the US is the Tamagotchi Color.

Ever since the Tamagotchi Plus Color (TMGC+C) was released in Japan (November 2008) members have posted they hope it will be coming to the USA (and the rest of the world.) Bandai has never said they would release the TMGC+C in the USA.

In November 2009, Bandai released another model with a full-color screen, the Tamagotchi-iD, in Japan and parts of Asia. Those sold outside of Japan (in the Philippines, for example) include a Chinese / English instruction manual. Because of this, members have posted they expect it will be released in Australia or the USA. Again, Bandai has never said they would release the Tamagotchi-iD in Australia or the USA.

Within the past few months (February-March 2010), Bandai America (responsible for Tamagotchi products in the USA) have said they will release a new Tamagotchi in the USA in summer 2010. It will be called the "TamaTown Tama-Go by Tamagotchi." This product will be completely different from the TMGC+C & Tamagotchi-iD, and will not have a full-color screen.

Why does Bandai not want to release a Color screen tamagotchi to the US. WTH, do we get all the black and white pixel ones. Does Bandai not like the US or something?

In American, there are too many toys to choose from. The "TamaTown Tama-Go by Tamagotchi" will cost about $20 US. In Japan, color-screen Tamagotchis cost about 5000 yen, which is about $50 US. If Bandai America released a Tamagotchi that cost that much, American consumers wouldn't buy it. Instead they would select a less expensive toy. Bandai is not going to release a toy that only a very few people will buy.

They're also probably taking advantage of their general audience, who would probably buy it no matter what as long as it's no more than the already pretty low price of around $15 (Why, like I previously posted elsewhere, V2-4.5 and V6 were bolted on to the bases of V1 and V5, respectively). No offense, but Bandai would probably only improve if these buyers thought more about what's in the Tamas, etc.

Sorry I've been ranting on in different topics. :furawatchi:
