I don't know why no one likes it. I'm just glad they came up with SOMETHING. I thought they had forgotten about us Americans entirely!


They didn't come up with something for tamagotchi fans though, that's the problem.

I see... nothing Tama related about pets.... I know they're virtual pets but..... wha?

I'm all for charities and all but, they're targeting young women okay, i get that.... but such women were what? 7? 8? When the vintages were out. And back then it wasn't about fashion or shelters so I'm confused on why exactly they're doing this. I know they want to spread good things but to use an old icon for it that some people (probably most) grew out of seems rather... odd.

I just can't seem to make the connection, tbh.

Laaaame-o! Well there are probably lots of people who like vintage Tamagotchi, but why should they be interested in clothes and stuff of Tamagotchi, let alone stuff that's nothing to do with anything. Let's take me, fore example, I like Hello Kitty but do I ever buy Hello Kitty clothes and beauty products? NO! I like Tamagotchi but would I ever buy Tamagotchi clothes and beauty products? DOUBLE NO.

I like zombies and i wear zombie shirts. :B

Okay bad example, but I know what you mean. XD What i think is, since Tamagotchi has been long since far done here in the USA, and even when they tried to bring it back with Connection... not a lot of people still know what it is, so to wear the fashion, people are not really going to know too much unless they ever had one.

And then watch, it's going to spawn a new Hipster meme.

Granted I might get a shirt... (that's a big 'might') but only if it's not super thin and not pink, maybe a green and black if they had one. But since I know it's a 'girl fashion' type clothing, I know it'll be thinner than a paper towel and i won't get it. My line of work doesn't allow for thin shirts.

A Tamagotchi is a small egg shaped device in which you raise an electronic pet. A Tamagotchi is not an article of clothing, nor is it a fashion accessory. Why is it that they seem to have difficulty grasping this?

I really think Sync Beatz has nothing to do with the Tamagotchi; they just licensed the brand name from Bandai so they can use the "Tamagotchi" name to brand those stuff :o

And yes, they're planning to completely kill the Tamagotchi concept by introducing an app.

Certainly seems to be an app for everything now.... Not all of us can afford tablets or smart phones, either.

A Tamagotchi app might be fun, but I wouldn't be able to get attached to it the way I would a real Tama. I tend to think of things like Tamagotchi ( real ones ) and Furbys as real pets. I seethings like Virtual pet apps as video games. It isn't impossible for me to get attached to a creature in my care in a video game. I loved my Tiger in Black and White and taught him to throw his poo at my worshippers and I once massacred a whole town in Fable 2 because one guy kicked my dog. But even though I liked those creatures I didn't love them anywhere near as much as I loved my Tamagotchis or Furbys or Aibos. An electronic pet is most effective when it exists in the real world and not just on a computer screen that can be turned on or off at will. Apps are fun distractions but that's all they are. A virtual pet app is no replacement for an actual hand held virtual pet like Tamagotchi or a robotic pet like Furby.

What I think:
So we've got SyncBeatz over here doing what needs to be done to distract us, maybe scrape together a few funds and advertise for Tamagotchi.
Then they'll release an app.
Then Bandai MIGHT release a Tamagotchi (based on what it says in the FAQ) and put TamaTown back up.

tbh I didn't think this Webisode 2 was as bad as the previous one. I thought it was a bit immature of people to comment on that video with outright swearing and flaming.
The stuff at the end was...I think, badly filmed fettuccine alfredo (maybe the chicken kind?)

But why does this sync beatz stuff need to be done in th first place

I mean, it's a corny fashion product, very MEH if you ask me.

BanDai could just come out of nowhere and release a new tamagotchi, just like what happened with those creepy bird creature things.

This whole fashion thing isn't even aimed towards us, it's aimed towards the lowest common denominator, fashion obsessed girls who think "LOL XD XD XD RETRO!!!!1111 IM SUCH A NERD LOLOLOL"

..you're not a nerd until you wear a Minecraft shirt with a Steve head whole holding a foam pickaxe. That's a true nerd.

Or wear 8 bit gear--8 bit sunglasses, an 8 bit tie, maybe throw in the ThinkGeek sound stomp thing and have it set to the 8 bit setting.... (Now I want to do this, lol)

This fashion stuff? Posers, lol.
