CNET News.com: "Matsushita Electric Industrial said Friday it would release in Japan on Dec. 14 a
hybrid of Nintendo's GameCube video game console that can play DVDs.

Retailers will be allowed to set their own price for the machine, named "Q," but the company
plans to sell it for $328.70 (39,800 yen) on its Web site, a Matsushita spokesman said. The
company has no plans yet to sell the device in North America."
