It seems like France has received a lot of special CD-i box releases coming in a PC style carton box. We've seen the 7th Guest here on Interactive Dreams (thumbs up if you can retrieve that post!) but thanks to two CD-i members we know of a pretty big list of CD-i games which also were released in abig PC style box. I wonder how many of you actually own those:

Besides those we've seen the 7th Guest and Burn:Cycle being released in the UK in a big box; I have to find out in what countries these were available, but as far as we can track down: France was a lucky country. It's possible this was only in a specific country, as Philips Media had their own publishing offices in different countries like Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands.
It surprises me the Voyeur box doesn't say Philips on the place of the publisher (down left), but something like 'Max Stage'. That's typical, why is that and what is Max Stage? The jewelcase just had 'Philips' printed on the boxart (Although Philips was carefully not to connect its name to 18+ titles on CD-i !
