The Philips VU 0005 is a better joystick than the VU 0001, it does not have the MSX logo.

It was meant for the non-MSX VG 5000 computer and its VG 5200 joystick interface, but is actually MSX compatible, although it lacks the second trigger button (both buttons are 'button 1'), making some games difficult or impossible to play.

Joystick with only one trigger are classified as type 1 joystick by the MSX standard.
