In 1983 Microsoft proposed a standard computer to run programs designed by one manufacturer on a machine built by any other. More than 20 companies were involved in MSX project (MicroSoft eXtended).


MSX 2 was the second-generation computer. Some MSX 2 models even included video digitizers or MIDI equipment

It was so successful that a French distributor went on to sell a console that was really a MSX 2 without a keyboard.
