Daniele M. of iNintendo.net writes, "Without a doubt the Panasonic Q is clearly the most interesting concept in regards to Nintendo hardware. The Q was manufactured by Panasonic in cooperation with Nintendo. The system became officially available in Japan and only Japan back in 2001. The exterior of the system looked something you would expect from the seventh/eight generation era, stunningly well designed to attract attention, to which it did. The front panel mini LCD screen with a backlight, blue neon glow and on controller sockets all looked very sleekly presented. Upon booting the system up you are greeted with a 'HELLO' followed by a 'GOODBYE' just before system powers down on the LCD display, all very charming."
