No no no, on Tama-zone, there was a link to some random tamagotchi toy.. And well, it confirmed that there were more downloads for everything else. :)

I will however assume that characters will be limited to the charms.

The characters seem like mutations of already-existing ones... Nandetchi's head is shaped like Gozarutchi's, Hoshigarutchi reminds me of Violetchi, Patitchi is like Uwasatchi, Chouchoutchi is like Butterflytchi, Warutsutchi is like Kuromametchi, and Pekopekotchi is some creepy combination of Mimitchi, Chamametchi, and Chantotchi. :o I loved the ID L characters much more.

So...is the Tamagotchi P the model thats up from the iD L, like the iD L was to the iD?

I'm just trying to figure out what it is exactly xD. There's lots of information on this topic, so its hard to process it.
Will it be like the iD L in basic function?

I agree with you, but I think Knightchi is like Gozarutchi. :o

Well, some of the characters, like Shirimotchi, are cute (he really, really looks like a minion, yay!). But they all seem to be more realistically based, if you get what I mean. You've got Knightchi, who looks like a knight (duh), Raitotchi looks like a baseball player, Takutotchi looks like a messed-up Santa...it's just lost it's creativity. The characters, which are supposed to be simple yet cute, have become so overly detailed it's gross.
I like the cooking with friends feature, and that you can connect with more than one other Tamagotchi, but I'd never be able to use those features. (How the heck would I scrape together the funds to get MULTIPLE Tamagotchi P's?) I'm glad the download feature is staying (at least, sort of), but it just seems like a marketing scam to sell all those figures. Maybe they think we might be a bit disgusted by the new characters and use that leverage to get us to buy the figures, which will unlock more characters, and hence get Bandai more money.
I probably won't get one of these, as I'm saving up for a new ereader and a plane trip in the FAR future (I'm at about $400 right now wuut), and I can get awesome stuff on my new iD L via downloads, without needing to pay. If I do buy one, I'll get it after the rush for them has gone down, and some formerly enthusiastic person can sell their beat-up one to me for cheap.
Bandai, if you want to keep up with the times, why not make an improved iD L with easier downloading options (like Bluetooth or even USB if necessary)? Infrared is a bit outdated. Or maybe add some characters without removing the old? You've got skillions of dollars; your possibilities are nearly endless.
In short (since I bloviate so much), Bandai seems to be missing some great ideas.
I'm not trying to offend anyone who likes the Tamagotchi P, just find what Bandai's doing to be a bit sketchy.

From what I know, Infrared is still used in Japan quite a bit. Idk how, considering that all the latest smartphones don't have it.

The figures(Or, I guess heart pieces) are similar to some pretty cure thing that some one else linked to. They are big sellers in Japan I assume, just because they are pretty and pink, little girls love them.

And about the ID L downloads.. Heh, no offensive, but I'm assuming by the time the P's are released, BanDai will cease releasing downloads for it.

^ You're right about that, DJ...Bandai will probably stop making downloads for iD L so people buy new versions. That's how they make money. :P

It would be nice if it had a short range wireless. I'm still unsure how you are supposed to connect 4 together with Ir. Wouldn't it also be benefitial for bandai to make the tamagotchi p the last tamagotch that you have to buy and just provide the full game on the charms? This would reduce manufacturing costs of producing a new device every time. If they are providing items on the charms like the Tama-Go then someone needs to rethink their design. Create a unique hardware key in each device and allow users to buy downloadable updates with decryption code specific to their device. Saves on manufacturing those gems and you get money from what users were downloading for free before.

othercents, bandai america's tama go has NOTHING to do with bandai japan's p's. that's the first time they do something like this. plus there will be downloads, the charms will contain more complicated things, most likely.

I can tell you... Those charms or deco pieces... In Bandai Japan's Precure toy line are a hit. They have tons of those it seems and they don't have just one use. The deco pieces are used as decorative buttons, bag charms and stick on other smile precure items... I would probably put them in those croc shoes... Both the precure and tamagotchi ones.

They Probably saw the huge profit with the precure ones, so they are trying tamagotchi ones now.
Reminds me... Still need to post the Precure decors somewhere......

If people like the Pieces, they will definitely be popular. Japan and America are two different countries, they might of not liked collectibles in America but they MAY like them in Japan. Shipping is really the main issue for me. If they like them then, woah, business good for them. :P

Precure is very popular in Japan so... Its on TV Asahi. That might have something to do with the peices.

Downloads already? Yay. Someone should try to transfer them back to an older color.... I am looking forward to the new stuff for the tama P. That probably means new pouches and accessories for the color tamas. (not directly the tama p)

Well I just got off the phone with my mom and she is making a trip home to Japan for Christmas, so I might get a Tamagotchi P from her. We will see since the dollar isn't doing so good against the yen she might not want to pay for one.

I'm not 100% if this is related to the P's or not but:

http://www.hlj.com/s...co seal&x=0&y=0

There are two deco seals (now out of stock? Earlier it said nov release) one the lovely seal and the other a white crystal one. But if they're not related please tell me so I don't get them xD


On another note, I'm SUPER excited! I didn't ore-order mine, I'm hoping these go on sale (even just a little) during cyber Monday (the Monday after Thanksgiving) But if not I'm getting one for Christmas because my dad always gives me $50-60, so this is what I'm getting this year :D
