Not a MSX,Pioneer made only 2 models (MSX 1),PX7 and PX-V60
By the way,no MSX logo on it
It could be a computer used for some laserdisc made by ... Pioneer and called Videodisc Controller

It's the Pioneer UC-V102 Videodisc Controller. Google for more info.

I couldn't find anything on google, do you have a link please?
That rectangular thing at the bottom is not a cartridge slot?

The page title says "PIONEER Videodisc Controller UC-V102A with keyboard". But indeed, at first sight it totally looks like an MSX! Smile

Heh, indeed, I couldn't find much on Google either, only that it's mentioned in some other product PDF.

The keyboard is the same than Mitsubishi ML-G3, ML-G30, ML-G30MkII family. Good to know as spare part... Maybe the Sony keyboards made for video titlers like this are also compatible with MSX.

A pity that this hardware is more expensive than the ML-G3 itself Wink

Indeed it's a videocontroller; but it's also pretty amazing that it has (presumably) two joysticks ports and a cartridge slot. Sadly, the photo doesn't have enough resolution to see clearly what's going on inside.

each expansion slots are double width like in the National FS-5500.
In the picture of the insides, it looks like 2 x 50 pin slot placed side by side.
