I have soem solutions. Firstly , when you think you want to but form e-bay try and find a picture of the package on the offical site before you anything else. this way you'll know what the package is suposed to look like. :huh:

then check the tamagotchi itself. does it have red comunicator at the top? does it have 3 buttons on it? does it say tamagotchi on it. the box also might give out hints too!try looking for something with bandi written on it. thats the smartest way to go. :D

dont be fooled and just buy something for the sake of buying . look into the thing 1st if u dont u'll be mad in the end. :D

the last thing im saying mite be the most importanat : TAMAGOTCHI V4 HAS NOT COME OUT YET. so dont fall for a discription like: v4 , v5 , 6, or 7. people just want your money. :o

if it helps check the offical website every weel-2 weeks for updates. B)

ok i hope i helped! B)

My Tamagotchi v3 is real its just at the top of it where the usually have the 'tamagotchi connection' it doesn't have that. does that mean it's a fake tamagotchi? :P

good question I bought a tamagotchi from zellars an hour ago it only says tamagotchi on the top but it connects with my translucent yellow tamagotchi V3 which says Connexion under the tamagotchi. This new one preforms and functions exactly like my other v3 but is it a fake, have zellars and wal-mart been known to sell fakes in the US and in my home of Canada?

My tamagotchi is light blue with green buttons at least i think its green im not overly sure with colours. it has blue green and white bubbles along with a blue and white stripe. It functions just like my yellow V3 it connects to it as well no problem, It also has the same background as my yellow V3.

But because the top says Tamagotchi and not Tamagotchi connection, I'm just a bit nervous. Is it a fake or just a miss printed V3 model?

and before someone says it was made in another contry, Of course it was if you read the back it says made in china like my other tamas do, all it says is Tamagotchi no connexion under neith it.

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!

This store called Oz has racks of tama's!!

No the back says Made in China like all real tamagotchis do. Unless yours says Made in China on the back as well if so then coolio Aqua ( thats what i named her) Is diffrent then her friends shes special.

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.
