I live in the U.S., there aren't any shops yet.  And I also prefer the original Japanese anyways.  It will keep me fresh on my Japanese for one, and also I seriously think they are better than the U.K. is and MUCH better than the U.S. will be.  I love the Japanese culture, people and the country.....but they truely are the greediest people on the face of the earth(besides Americans).  The Japanese always have to have things BEFORE any other country does, AND they have to have theirs better if they do distribute to other countries.  Notice how Japanese got it MONTHS before any other country?  And then....takes their time to get it to the U.K. and especially U.S......even though the U.S. was the biggest importer of the Tamagotchi during the last craze?  To back that up.....15 Tamagotchi were sold every minute at the peak of the craze in U.S. and Canada ALONE!  That's 150 every 10 mins.....and roughly 900 every hour!

You're really ignorant. The Japanese aren't the greediest people on the face of the Earth, or not for the reasons you list atleast.

1. They always have to have things BEFORE any other country does.

This is not true. RARELY, some Japanese games made by Konami and Nintendo- Metal Gear Solid and Metroid series for example are often released in America before it's released in Japan. Of course the Tamagotchi is going to be released in Japan first, it was MADE in Japan. Alright, maybe it was assembled in China, but the concept/company is Japanese. It's quite common that the company will first release it's new concept/series/whatever in their originating country before going international. It's merely a marketting safepoint that you test the waters locally before you experiment overseas. It's true, during the Tamagotchi craze they sold like mad, and while I'm not saying they still don't sell well, but it's not always 100% sure that it's worth translating the game at the same time as creating the Japanese product (which is what they'd have to do to have an American release at the same time as a Japanese one).

2. Theirs has to be better than any other country's versions.

I don't believe any company would consciously shoot itself in the foot. I believe anytime the game is lacking something here, or in other countries it's either because they were rushing the game [which explains bugs] (and to prevent people, like you, complaining), or the countries they released it in didn't have... the capabilities or wasn't smart market-wise. If we don't have cellphones that have the technology to function (or the company willing to) with the Tamagotchis, what's the point in spending the money to keep the useless feature in? Or perhaps they did market research and decided that it wasn't worthwhile because the majority of their market wouldn't use that feature.

3. They take forever releasing it to other countries.

Translating takes time. I'm not sure how much Japanese you know, or if you understand how complex translating a language can be... but it's not like you wake up one night, sneeze and it's done. These things take time, and programming it into the game, etc takes time as well. Like I said, I don't believe any company would willingly shoot themselves in the foot like this. It's not an issue of patriotism, but an issue of capitalism. They want money, like any other business, and thus is the only reason why I can find a problem with some games/toys - when they RUSH it so much that it ends up being buggy.

I have other gripes about American companies publishing Japanese games... but the issues I have is with the American censorships (removing cigarettes from smoking characters) and not with the Japanese.
