The History of the Panasonic Q
« on: March 08, 2017, 00:34:51 AM »
I just watched this video about this system I had never heard of, the Panasonic Q!  Has anyone heard about this before?  Check out the history of this console by the Gaming Historian. It seems this was the answer to the lack of DVD playback on Nintendo's GameCube.

Very cool system. I'd love to own one but they're pretty expensive.

Yes, they sure are!  It would have to be a modded system to work in our countries.

I've seen one of those at some retro events over here. Was a while a mind you.
Looks like one of those shuttle PCs. Its a quirky little thing. I like it.

It must belong to someone prominent in the UK retro 'scene'. Maybe they'll see this thread.
