  1. Like any smart company, they are also monitoring these channels for demand. If hints of a pending release land with a thud in the community they don't pursue it. However, if excitement builds and it keeps growing (or goes viral) within the community they know what might result in some good sales (making it worth pursuing a rerelease).
  2. Yup... The same view works on computer, tablet and phone. Things shift around a little, of course.
  3. I'll start off with this little tidbit... Today, March 12 2019, is the worldwide web's 30th birthday (what was life like before the www?). Bonus fun fact... TamaTalk is months away from being 15 years old. If you are under 30, you have never known a world without access to the web. If, like me, you are over 30, you know how much things have changed.
  4. Thought I would try to kick off a game of interesting facts similar to the last post wins and others like that we have enjoyed for years... This one is for fun facts. Winner is the one who collects the most reactions for the post (that little heart icon below each post). Maybe the rule will change... I don't know. Might be fun though and can learn a few things, right?
  5. Alexa tell the others that I won this *Topic closed by Admin*
  6. Can you post a livk to the tweet(s) you are referring to? PM me if you need help.
  7. Came across another cool article on Twitter and thought it was worth sharing: The life and death of Tamagotchi and the virtual pet
  8. I remember speaking with some of the Bandai USA folks many years ago regarding phones. This was around the time of explosive growth in smartphones and the decline of sales of Tamagotchi in stores. Back then they recognized that phones/apps were going to be eating into the attention spans of their customers. That being said, I think having apps integrated with the handheld devices is a natural thing to expect (though we kind of saw this kind of experimenting with Tamagotchi and web site codes years ago too). It is crazy to think about how much things have changed with Tamagotchi, the web, phones, social media, etc in just the (almost) 15 years that TamaTalk has been around... I hope Bandai is able to figure something compelling out.
  9. Sounds like you did a good job of teaching them responsibility. I still think there is some validity in using a virtual pet as a test for being prepared for the responsibility of having a real pet. My kids are still very young. We aren't doing the pet thing until they are old enough to handle some of the responsibility and care (this also buys us some time to be able to afford caring for pets after the caring for young child expenses like daycare and diapers are gone).
  10. I've been curious to know if a bit of Bandai's thinking with the re-releases and such... I've been left wondering if part of this is related to the fact that many of the people that had Tamagotchi as kids are now getting to the age of having their own kids. Will there be some generational sharing thing?
  11. Found this article about using a Tamagotchi as a good measure of seeing how ready somebody is to take on the responsibility of having a pet… I have to say, I could not agree more! https://gametruth.com/editorials/dont-get-a-pet-get-a-tamagotchi/ Have you all seen any relationship between caring for a virtual pet and how that relates to caring for a real one?
  12. I came across the following tweet and started to wonder what the current state of Tamagotchi is out in the world. I suppose virtual pet fans are in something of a bubble nowadays where it is easy to surround yourself (on forums, social media, etc) with people who like the same things. But what is it like out in real life? What do people around you think of your Tamagotchi? Do you all hide your Tamagotchi from others? There is no denying that it is not as popular as in the past... But there are still lots out there in use and still being sold... Or am I completely wrong?
  13. Came across a cool project called Tamagotchi Together. Hope to see some cool animation coming from them!
