Panasonic of America has declared that the GameCube DVD player hybrid known as Q will not be put out to American retail.
Company spokesman Kurt Praschak said, ?It's simply a Japan device. Right now there are absolutely no plans for US marketing.? News that will no doubt frustrate American GameCube fans.
In a way, this might be good news for European gamers. Nintendo and Matsushita (Panasonic in Japan) will have much more time to assess the situation for a European release of its fantastic looking machine. It might also decide that there would be greater demand for it in Europe, a region that is second only to Japan in terms of mass-technology fetishism.
As soon as there is a decision, you will be the first to know.
