Will the P's pierces lose value due to vdp?

Recommended Posts

With Mister Blilnky's new VDP+ do you think that the physical pierces will lose value? The only one out currently is the sanrio pierce for the P's but, it's completely in English. I'm not trying to complain because the physical pierce is like 90$ and in Japanese but I have been wanting to play with it for like, forever and I can completely read everything. But do you think because we can download the VDP+ for free that people will stop buying the pierces?

I don't think they'll lose value altogether. I mean, people still own angelgotchis and p1's in spite of there existing an app for it. I guess it'll come down to whoever wants to own the pierce physically as a collection piece.

It will probably end up being a mixed bag. Being an older product, the P's has probably already lost enough sales in Bandai's eyes that whatever depreciation there is from the Download won't hurt it. Most likely the people who would be downloading this are those who can't afford to pay $90 for a mini-game add-on anyways. I doubt it will effect the market much if at all- besides perhaps causing a slight lowering in price of the physical unit over time.

I just wanted to say that I' m new to tama collecting and playing and that I'd still prefer to own the physical pierce itself because I think its just nicer to know I took my time saving the money. Also I think they're cute :)

I have bought pierces that are pure decoration due to the vdps (a bear, a bee, and a rabbit-bear thing). And a lot of people would prefer a free download than to pay for a physical copy.

I don't have an infrared device so I can't use virtual deco pierces. Moeover though, I just prefer to have official tamagotchi things. While the pierces aren't high priority for me and I already have a lot of other things to spend money on, I do think it's interesting but still don't have a way to use it, and if I did possibly I can't be bothered to xD And would still prefer to use official things. I've never completed a tamagotchi (unlocked everything to unlock). Not even close. So I think I still have lots of things to do in them as it is.
This is just my personal opinion.

I don't think it will impact it that much. I'm still personally getting the Pierces when I can as the VDP's can only be stored for so long. Using the infrared dongle to patch my P's into English took a while and was fiddly. I feel like having a Pierce I can simply take on and off will be a lot easier for me.

On top of that they look pretty. :)

      Hello everyone! I have a tamagotchi on right now but I’ve been really wanting the p’s. It is very expensive but it seems like so much fun. I don’t think I’m going to be able to get any pierces because they are also pretty expensive. For those of you who have a tamagotchi p’s, do you think it’s fun without the deco pierces (or an IRDA phone)? Thank you

      I need help. My tamagotchi keeps saying : I want to play. Does anyone know what this means?

      We're almost a week from Halloween, I'm just post this drawing here since I've put enough effort and finished before Halloween. But enjoy this Mario & Luigi x Tamagotchi crossover for the spooky month of October!
       
      Wonder if you know something familiar in the Mansion?

      Hi there! I'm BoredRabbit who has a passion on character design on Twitter and DeviantArt. Now I was introduced to Tamagotchi in the early 2010s by my cousins. I know it's a virtual pet toy, but I did knew there was an anime when I was on the internet watching videos on YouTube. But yes, I'm one of the few who doesn't own a Tamagotchi, but was introduced to the franchise since the early 2010s.
      But I have some Tamagotchi Crossovers if anyone is interested. 
      Let's start with Mario & Luigi: Future Dream Town

      Mario & Luigi: Future DreamTown was another of my Mario & Luigi Box Art Crossovers where I wanted to gimmick the Mario & Luigi box art like where Nintendo and AlphaDream would unexpectedly announce a new Mario & Luigi game but with crossovers with partners. 
      My pitch was to have Nintendo and Bandai Namco collaborate to bring recognition to the Tamagotchi franchise starting the Mario & Luigi RPG series to break down 4 buttons or pull the Partners in Time concept. 
      For Story: The Mario Bros. has face new faces in their world and now they've jumped into the Tamagotchi universe. The twist is that Mario & Luigi went into DreamTown but in the Future. Clulutchi and Miraitchi were flying around and discovers the Mario Bros running around knowing what this place is. Together, the Pocket Designer Twins and the Mario Bros team up to fend off foes of Robots and Bowser's Minions who are plotting to takeover Tamagotchi Planet (plot twist: It's Spacytchi and Bowser Jr. plotting this).
      Oh, but here's Mametchi and Ludwig rivaling with:

      Toad + Tamagotchi Friends: Bowser Jr. was looking for Mario & Luigi until he steps into a portal which leads to TamaTown. He found Spacytchi and his brothers as Spacytchi plots to takeover Tamagotchi Planet. Toad follows Bowser Jr. but he encounters Mametchi and Kutchipatchi, which results the trio to find Bowser Jr.
      It's a side-story staring Toad which hasn't been a playable character in Mario RPGs before. Instead of the typical Bowser's Minions/Bowser Jr's Journey, I wanted this side story to be like Paper Jam but having the ability to change characters and give Toad a main roll with Mametchi and Kutchipatchi.
      With that, this topic is gonna be long so here's another Crossover I wanted to see ever since:

      The description I put together on DeviantArt:
      "Sackboy and friends enters a completely different world filled with a different cast of characters that are said to be called Tamagotchi. It’s up to to the Heroes to enter Tamagotchi Planet to stop Spacytchi’s plans to takeover the entire planet."
      This is another crossover concept when LBP had DLC crossovers like Muppets and Spongebob (oh and I'm not forgetting Marvel and DC Comics.) LBP is a charming game and I get nostalgic on LBP alot when I see Sackboy in my timeline. Heck, DLC costumes maybe interesting when sometimes a DLC level can be packaged with massive content LBP had back then.
      Here's my pitch for this LBP x Tamagotchi DLC concpet:
      11 costumes for Sackboy & Friends (DLC Costume Pack) Sackboy: Mametchi, Spacytchi Sackgirl: Memetchi, Lovelitchi, Himespetchi  Oddsock: Pochtchi  Swoop: Hinatchi Small Toggle: Kutchipaitchi, Pipospetchi, Akaspetchi Big Toggle: Gotchi King The DLC Level Kit pitch:
      TamaTown being the hub world to explore (like MangleWood and Bunkum Lagoon.) The Level kit tells a story of Sackboy and Friends going in the Tamagotchi universe. Levels contains 10 levels regarding the story (+6 challenge levels + 4 racing levels) Can contain costume exclusives in specific levels (Clulutchi, Miraitchi, Kuromametchi, Gozarutchi, Masktchi, etc.) Over 250 stickers and 100 decorations based on the Tamagotchi franchise.) Over 200 materials and 150 objects) Gives Sackboy a brand new Power Up that has the ability to break through walls. I've been knowing LBP in my life and every time I see Sackboy, he gives me flashbacks playing all the LBP series (and yes I have all 3 games + PS Vita), so here's some Tamagotchi + LBP crossovers:


      Now for the last crossover which some of you may or may not be familiar with but...

       
      I'm a COD Zombies geek and yes, I know what the Aether story and placyed the COD just for the Zombies mode, is but it's confusing to know the storyline when there's too much in the multiverse. Anyways we have Mametchi and friends dress up as the Tranzit crew (aka Victis crew). I know Victis are the weakest crew in-terms of Characters, but my thoughts: they're just survivors trying to fight undead freaks when the rockets nuked earth in the Ultimis Timeline.
      Now it's time for the Tamagotchi fathers as Primis Crew:

      So here are the Tamagotchi fathers except Ikaritchi (as he's not Kutchipatchi's father but his beard and stash caught my attention to fit the Primis Nikolai role), I'd thought it'd be funny to see them star a role by cosplaying as Primis.
      And here's the last one which may contain spoilers for those wondering how Treyarch ended Aether as it's been going for 11 years (however, I suggest if you didn't seen the ending of Aether, be warn! But if some don't mind or seen it, okay):

      This was where I wanted to redraw the Tag der Toten scene, where Victis gets banished in the Dark Aether. I put the Tamagotchi characters there just to redraw this and it almost took 6 hours to complete. But holy shoot, this one was sad considering that Primis and Ultimis had to erase themselves in-order to break the cycle, resulting Samantha and Eddie being the only two to go on this one sigular universe with no Zombies, no 115, and no Apothicons. The only thing that makes sad redrawing this is Victis treated like puns. It's a shame that they got banished, which caught my interest redrawing this scene.
      I've wanted to post this and yes I'm joined this site just today. So hopefully I read your replies on your thoughts on these crossovers. I'd been posting positive and wholesome art  just to make people happy as 2020 was getting rough. So stay stay everyone!

      Hey
      I was wondering if anyone knows where I could buy a DVD copy of Tamagotchi: The Movie online in Canada. The only place I can find it is on the Australian version of eBay.
      Thanks
