Yes it's a real flat button, I often miss it when I try to hit! ;D

You can't be serious. IMHO Joysticks had to be (and STILL have to be) 8 or 4 or maybe 2 way, but not stupid analogue "handles".
I hated EVERYTHING about that joystick. The worst thing was that they were hard wired SOOOOO it was impossible for other manufacturers to offers something decent....

The manufacturer is Orion, it's a very old hungarian company founded in 1913 and it has immortal products like this TV.

It is more than 30 yeras old with a "like new" screen! ;D

In fact Philips did release versions of the G7000 with detachable controllers. They used the Atari style 9 pin D-Sub connector but I was told they are not compatible with Atari style joysticks. I have such a console but never tested it with other sticks, I don't find the original controlers too bad  ;)
