So what? I don't I have used rechargeable a for years and there's been no problem, they are just batteries they just recommend so you know what type of batteries to use doesn't mean you have to use exactly alkaline batteries.

I didn't say you can't use rechargeable batteries 0_0

Me my self is using rechargeable batteries too, by the way, let's get back on topic.

Any updates on the 4U so far, not on tamagotchi news section.

Usually recommendations are made because of bad experiences with certain types of products that may have ruined said product. Such as rechargeables leaking more often in electronics, they probably put it because, if they were used and leaked inside, it would void warranty or something. So it essentially is a 'use at your own risk' sorta deal.

Furbitchi, do you know if it's free shipping/how much the shipping costs?

Unfortunately, they don't calculate shipping costs for you until release because they don't yet know how much the items weigh, etc., etc.
 
Still good deals though, and HLJ has been great for me in general.

I would guess about $21 or so, but with them, I always use EMS. That was the cost of my last purchase and it was a bit heavier with the one item. Its usually like $10-$13 then a few dollars more for the middle and then the EMS. Same box usually comes to my house so it generally stays the same price for me sending to the USA. (from HLJ)

Anyone want to pre-order on eBay? :P

pfff 100$, I would never spend that much on preordering a tamagotchi I don't really know how it is. We only know SOME features of the 4U for now, but not all of them, we don't know if we can get downloads outside japan yet and other stuff.

I think I'd rather wait some month to see if it's really worth it before throwing 100$ at the screen xD

 

I think 60$ (70-80 with shipping maybe)  is more reasonable, but it's still a lot of money you are spending on something you don't know yet  :o

 

I'm really excited for the 4U and I know it will be a great version as you all know! but I'd rather wait to see if it will really be fully enjoyable outside japan  ^_^

And preorders are now all gone... *sigh* I should've preordered this morning when I had the chance. :( I might preorder some faceplates and charm straps in the meantime.

I am following this thread quietly... 

 

I jumped out of my seat after seeing this but only to be hit by a boulder seeing that its on order stop yet again. D=

 

Maybe they only got another 40 of these to distribute... *sad face*

 

I am having a difficult time knowing what color strap is what when they do not have stock photos of any kind.

The pink one is still available.
The price equals to $55 which is rather ok imo!

Sadly I'm going to have to wait for release or something because I have bills to pay and there's video games coming out I'd rather get instead. The preorders sold out super fast again anyway, which is surprising. Guess I'll have to stick to Ebay after release and pray the prices aren't inflated like crazy.

Did I just miss out on another one? I was on around the time this post was up but all Tamagotchi on HLJ were all on Order Stop.

I had put in orders for 2 face plates and charm straps for the time being... This means I am committed to getting a Tamagotchi 4U, right? NO TURNING BACK RIGHT? *shifty eyes*

Really hope they have one more open window for preorders on HLJ so I can get the white one. I ordered a pink one since I wanted two anyway. I'm a weird collector and need 2 of everything  :P
