The Panasonic Q is a hybrid of the Nintendo GameCube and a DVD player. It was released only in Japan. Since the Nintendo GameCube cannot play DVDs, Panasonic and Nintendo worked to create a new version of the console. It can play GameCube games and DVDs. Since it has two legs on the bottom, it requires its own special Game Boy Player.

On 18th December 2003, the Panasonic Q was discontinued due to poor sales. The reason it was is because it was usually less expensive to buy both a Nintendo GameCube and a DVD player.
