The PHILIPS G7200 did get a limited release in the UK, but I had never seen one. and to this day I have never seen the box to one. so that's one of my personal "holy grails", please if you have any information on a box to a G7200**, or if your a collector could you please just supply me pictures.

**UPDATE
Thanks to site visitor Ulf Svensson, I have now got a picture of a G7200 box which I thought I would share with you all. Oh God I would like that baby in my collection, so there it is.  Needless to say I will be taking serious steps to acquire it.

 

Like The G7000 Schneider released a variant of this machine as did Radiola. In a very stylish black casing The Radiola Jet27 & Schnieder G7200 are much sought after pieces of kit in the Videopac world.

There was also the N60 with a built in screen, but a very different design, that cannot really be classed as a 7200 variant but a new model entirely, however the capabilities were identical. There is no known Videopac+ variant of the G7200.

Of Course The G7200 apart from the built in screen had no advantages over the G7000 and plays all standard Videopac cartridges, it did have a change of keyboard layout and size making the Musician and QFTR keyboard overlays invalid, The enhancement modules C7010 chess modules still work but hang funnily off the side.


I currently own two G7200s an extremely rare English model, and more common French model. The 7200 got most success in France and can easily be bought from there for use in the UK, simply converted my use of a European mains converter (2 to 3 pin) the only real difference is the English one says "Select Game" whereas the French asks "Que Jeu ?". and the space bar language

is there a German or NL variation ?

A third variant has been mentioned by forum member list, which appears to have the Anglo-French keyboard but with English ROM
