for the longest time i told myself i wasn't going to buy a japanese +color or id/ id l because it was in japanese and i wanted to know what everything said on it and so i kept telling myself they would release one in english but i just don't see it happening. So for now i will suck it up and learn the japanese ones and just be glad tamagotchis are still popular some where and i can still easily get them online.
I totally agree with what some people said about releasing the id l or any of the color tamas in the USA. I feel it would definitely be a good seller. With all the technology these days kids/teens/adults really wouldn't be that interested in a small black and white screen, but a color tamagotchi would likely be a hit.

All of us will grow up eventually, and give up Tamas at some point - and that's fine for us - but it's not fine for BanDai. It would be like selling Xbox Kinect in 2030 - vintage Tamas nowadays. needs to keep up with modern technology and get some new features in. No, not more expensive figurines, but computer games, more movies in English, and my best ideas for Tamas are a hot-and-cold detector (so your Tama could join in with your weather outside) and a personal messaging system - new things modern technology brings us. A fact - modern kids would rather have an iPhone over a black-and-white electronic easter egg and a few figures with extra games. BanDai doesn't see that fact. And that's why they're failing with Tamagotchi.

In the Big Bang Theory episode "The Weekend Vortex", they referenced Tamagotchi too, another reason Tamagotchi will never die.
while reading the it made me smile topic on tamazone I saw this
the show 2 boke girls they show tamagotchis as cupcake toppers so I guess tamagotchis arnt dead YET !
Credit for tamagotchi_freak_06 on tamazon for finding this out and taking a pic of it !
On the subject bout why BanDai is stopping, I think they are probably taking a break, and it will come back a few years later. Take My Little Pony, Popples, Furby, the older Tamagotchis, etc. They took breaks and came back years later!

it could potentially be revived as a phone app.
They already released Tamagotchi: 'Round The World for iDevices.

Tamatown won't shut down, that would be unfair to those who still use their Tama-Go.
well i hope they decide to make another tamagotchi :'( but if not, tamatown might shutdown or keep like that in its boring ways

They already stopped selling the Tama-Gos here in Australia. The only shop I ever saw them in was Woolworths, and it was only for a short time. They stopped selling them in Toys R Us because I looked at their site and there was no trace of TMGC. I heard that Bandai America is going to stop making Tamagotchis because of the Tama-Go's low popularity. Furthermore, they don't want to release a color TMGC because it would cost 50$ and they think nobody would buy such an expensive toy. It's heart breaking, but it looks like Tama-fans are going to have to move to Japan...
I live in Australia too. It is very sad. I was walking through Toys R Us when I heard a girl saying "Hey, Tamagotchi! I remeber these!". She had a look, then walked off. That was when I stumbled over the new Tama-Go. There were only a small amount shown. I somewhat DID find a v3-v4.5 skin (unexpectedly). They used to have them at Myers at around 2008, I haven't seen one since from there.
