Ooh, I had to look it up! It's so cool they're releasing a new Tamagotchi this summer. But I agree with you, it was exciting until I read about it connecting to a 'social network' and being able to 'like photos' lol.
I wasn't expecting an EU release this year myself, it really came across as a huge surprise - I'm not sure if it will be available to buy in shops where I live, but it would be awesome to be able to see them available again.
Yep, whilst I understand that they're trying to hit a target demographic, it just sounds way too stressful for me - what if the 'health' of your Tamagotchi will depend on the amount of 'likes' you get? That sounds terrible.

Is the social media thing and Add on? Or necessary for core gameplay? That's what drove me crazy about Farmville on face book. None of my friends played, so I'd have to friend strangers if I wanted event stuff.
I'm really, really hoping that it won't impact the core gameplay of the 'gotchi.
Bandai has also recently released some information about the Twistedtchi, which is a collaboration with Disney's Twisted Wonderland franchise - now, I have to admit that I don't really know anything about Twisted Wonderland itself, but the Tamagotchis look really cool!

Re the Pix talk, I'm actually really intrigued by the social media thing. I like that Tamas lately get more ongoing content thanks to the community, and this sounds like a great way to expand on that. However, I think the units themselves look very Fisher Price, although I'm sure they'll look different in officially released correspondence (pretty sure what has been leaked is most likely some kind of prototype!)
Both of my girls had to have them when they came out in the 90's. As much as I love virtual life, babysitting those things while they were in school drove me bonkers! I was trying to be the kind, cool mom... but grandmothering those never ending beeps. Oi!
Oh gosh yes, I loved those things when they came out!! I'm not sure if I ever had a "real" tamagotchi or if mine was an, uh, alternate version, wink wonk I also remember having one where the case was shaped like a white dog with black patches. I remember getting ready for school one morning, hearing it make a lil bleepy noise I hadn't heard it make before and it had died ;0;
I also had a few of those digimon digivices that were kinda like a tama. They used to count your steps and you progressed along a map when you hit certain step "milestones" and fought bosses. You could also connect them with one another and battle. I can distincly remember a friend and I spending lunchtimes frantically shaking those things to get as many steps in as possible and power up out digimon to fight one another, haha!
i just wanted to pop in and say this is SO ON BRAND x)
did anyone have the ones back in the day where you could put the tops together and communicate with other ones??? ICONIC. REVOLUTIONARY. i got one of the revamped versions they re-released for christmas a couple years ago and it was so cute so pure
also, i want to be buried with my pocket pikachu....did anyone have these?:

Thor: Oh no I have 44 profile notifications now-- I found a method to my showing madness but it makes notifications like crazy! I wonder if there's a way to turn off certain ones in settings haha

Arie: Thor, it should be possible to disable notifications per (sub)board! I know I've done it before.

Alex@Marvel: So I decided after (I don't even know how many) years of Gotham being my prefix, it's now Marvel. ^^ I felt like it was time for a rebranding.
