Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions *UPDATE*

When the Golden Turkey debuted at the Ganz eStore this past Wednesday, many players noticed that it had the exact same Pet Specific Item and Pet Special Food as the plush Gobbler Turkey.  It was assumed by most that this was a glitch that would be corrected once the programmers realized what had happened.
 
As we have now confirmed with the Creative Director, this is not a glitch.  Here is the exclusive statement he sent to Webkinz Insider:
 
"The Golden Turkey and Gobbler Turkey do have the same PSI/PSF. This is the first time that we’ve done this."

UPDATE: We've received an update from the Creative Director in regards to the identical PSIs and he has proposed a possible solution. I'll fill you all in on the details once I have everything set up!

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

Thanks for the info.Everyone have a great day and God bless.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

Well, I guess this will be the very first eStore pet that I won't purchase. If the Golden Turkey had a different PSI, I would have bought it for sure.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

There is sort of a precedent. Those Easter chicks all had identical PSIs except for the colour, and the PSFs were basically the same exact food in different bowls with the candy corn arranged in the bowls in different ways.

Would've been nice if we'd had a heads-up about that, though, before people shelled out money for the Golden Turkey pet.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

I was going to buy the golden turkey, but now I might not. I wish they would have re-colored the tablecloth or something. It is still a nice pet.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

Hmm. Well, I like the Golden Turkey and the Gobbler Turkey equally, and will probably be asking for both for Christmas (the Golden Turkey as an early present, though, because I think it may be just a Thanksgiving thing ), sooooo I suppose I'll have 2 of the PSIs. Make a reaaaally big dining room... yeah, with lots of Fall Fest prizes!

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

I agree with you, momtotaryn, I would have bought the Turkey if it had a different pet item.
I do like the color of the estore turkey. They could have done better with the pet item.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

I think Ganz is trying to figure out if people will still buy it/ test how much the psi really effects the sales. Personally, I think it is a good strategic move to figure out the desires of the webkinz fans. It will be interesting for them to see if people will buy both the estore and the gobbler turkeys. Time will tell...

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

Aww... that's kind of lame.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

I love the pet but I already have the table. I never use it and bassicly it's worless to me.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

Hm... well, even though I don't get eStore pets anyways, that's a little disappointing. I like the look of the Golden Turkey better, but since I'd much rather have a real pet to snuggle with, I would get the Gobbler Turkey.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

Huh, I wonder why they chose to do this... having the same PSI can't be helping increase sales.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

Oh wow, well they can keep it then! Why would I want just a golden version of a turkey I already have if it comes with the SAME PSI that I already have? I guess it's good if you don't have, and don't want the gobbler turkey. But that's just lazy on Ganz part IMO.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

What is the point of having a virtual only pet but having the same PSI?? Where is the fun in that I WAS going to get one, now I am just going to settle for the one I have.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

They should make a lil kinz turkey and design a kiddie table for the psi. I guess they don't make lil kinz estore pets very often, but they had the chicks for Easter... hmmm...

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

Odd. Why repeat PSIs over? Oh well. Thanks for letting us know, Ganz.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

Well, that saved me s-store points. thanks!

A children's table! I love it! Great idea.

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

How interesting

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

No.. I am not getting a turkey now.. neither of them. This is so lazy of Ganz.. LOL

Re: Creative Director Responds to Gobbler/Golden Turkey Questions

Well, that is disappointing. I guess this is one pet I won't be getting. Do they really think, no matter what they sell, people will buy it. I have all the e-store pets, but I won't buy this one.
