Back in July 2016, when Pokémon Go was released, everyone was hyped about it. Unfortunately, two months after the release of the Pokémon Go, we can clearly say that a good amount of players got bored and have left the game.
We remind you that the game was supposed to be launched along with the Pokémon Go Plus, a wearable device that notifies you if there is any Pokémon around and it also allows you to catch him. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, because the company has decided to release it a bit later.
We’re pretty sure that if the Pokémon Go Plus would have been released at the same time with the game, many stores would have run out of stuck in just a few hours. However, even now a good amount of players have left the game and the ones who are still playing it have lost their enthusiasm, there will be not many persons who will want to purchase this wearable device.
Don’t get us wrong, the price is not that high, but we’re not very sure who will want to spend $35 for a device that only functions with a game. After all, the Pokémon Go Plus is a device that’s using the Bluetooth sensor and it just vibrates when a Pokémon or a PokeStop is around.
While Nintendo has already apologized to customers who’ve pre-ordered the Pokémon Go Plus (promising that they will get a discount on future purchases), we’re pretty sure that a good amount of them have decided to ask for their money back. The Pokémon Go Plus is expected to be released on September 16, 2016 and it will be sold for $35.
Are you playing Pokémon Go? Will you spend $35 on the Pokémon Go Plus or will you rather save money and purchase other games?
