I'm not bothered about the colour- its the below-par features that irritate me. It looks so basic- it literally has less features than a Music Star and I just dished out nearly £30 for it? My P's was just over £30 with shipping. The P's is so blatantly better and ugh. I've ordered one because this is gonna need all the support it can get. But get your act together Bandai.

With $40, I can probably buy a lot more, especially on Rakuten and other online shops :P

Do you think if they don't sell well in Europe, they won't come to America?? If it was a new color one, I would definitely pay more and order one, but it does seem so basic. I don't want to keep complaining about it, but I just feel it is a step back still.

I think Bandai America spoke of Tamagotchi Friends that it will need to keep the word of being released. Exp since Life kinda got batted down (and haven't heard anything more beside online webisodes, no product yet)

I think going back to roots is a good idea. Not fully the p1/p2 but from what people say, its basic like one with a few extra features... I just hate we have to wait a year for it to be in stores in the USA. It would have been a perfect Christmas surprise... Even Valentines is better then a year to wait. With the "new connection" feature they could totally use that bump feature as a huge sell point.

I personally don't like the whole Tamagotchi L.I.F.E stuff...

This isn't Tamagotchi L.I.F.E, it is a completely different thing. Tamagotchi L.I.F.E is for late teens/early adults. Tamagotchi Friends is for kids.

I know they're two different things, SailorRosette mentioned l.i.f.e being batted down and I just stated my opinion on it - Doesn't mean I don't know the difference between the two.

Okays. Sorry I mentioned it. There is a topic about Life.

Anywho. Looking forward to Tamagotchi Friends... Next year. Lol.

But you didn't quote her... it just looked like you were randomly saying that you didn't like Tamagotchi L.I.F.E, so I assumed that you were confusing them. 

 

I really don't like the advert- I know that if my non-existent child wanted something with that advert I would be reluctant to get it for them. Its incredibly annoying and seems very very rushed, which certainly won't help the sales which have already been hurt by the high price point.

Well I just found out how to quote.. hence your quote^.. still figuring TamaTalk out... 
The Tamagotchi Friends to me just seems like the Tama-go except there is no TamaTown and it has NFC(I think?) instead of IR.. I'm a bit hesitant to purchase the product though I want to try it. Hopefully those who have already pre-ordered will give us a review soon :)

I know many are dissapointed because it is not in color. But if Tama Friends sells well maybe the next version will be a color one. It is a logical next step after all.

Alisachi, there is already quite a bit of people that have/had TF, like me, carol and few others (forgot their nicknames, but they are on tama-zone as well). If you have a question just ask one of us.

...Woah. That mini-games is from the Japanese Tamagotchi site! It doesn't even have the Dream Town characters...weird ._. I was hoping they'd actually make a new game instead of using the Japanese ones.
