I just got my tamagotchi connection yesterday at the local walmart. I was under the impression that they were already out in America but now that Ive looked around online it seems that everyone has to order them or preorder them. I went to visit another walmart and saw that they didnt carry them. Maybe the fact that I got mine is from some freak mistake or perhaps walmart is already carrying them.

Wal mart is known for selling products early, last year they got in trouble for selling Harry Potter and the Order Of The Phoenix early.

Are you in the US? Maybe just some Walmart location that does not know they aren't supposed to sell them yet. :P

Let the mad rush to Walmarts begin!

Yes I am in the USA. I actually found out about the new Tamagotchis by comming across them at Walmart. I didnt buy one right away bc I didnt have money with me so I went home and looked them up online. Im so excited that they can mate and have generations!!!! I remember when tamagotchis were first out and how they came out with the mating ones in japan. Oh how i wanted one so much!!!!!! Ive been waiting years for the chance to get one that can have generation so I tried to get my parents to drive back to walmart that day, but because it was such a long drive we went to another walmart, which didnt have them... Next day we went back to the good one and there they were, glowing in their virtual pet splender!

They do not pay attention to when the box says to sell them. They just rip the box open and shove them on the shelves. My cousin works there... i kno

Well then I am lucky too! :P Decided to check out the two nearest WalMarts... First was a no show. Second had a handful right by the NeoPets and such. He shoots... He scores!

Thanks for the tip!

I'll try to get some pics to put online ASAP...
