Where did you find that info Gameblabla? It's really hard to find anything about it on the Internet because it was almost completely forgotten.
I found all the info here :

Follow the thread for an interesting journey inside the Vidéoway.
He even tries to run the dumped ROM in MAME !

According to the decap, the Vidéoway has :
  • A MC68A09EP processor (6809 based, 1.5 Mhz)
  • 256Kb of Video Ram (a lot for 1989 !)
  • 8Kb of Static RAM (Like the PC-Engine)
  • A QSI chip labelled "LSI LOGIC CANADA" (Probably for handling video and sound)

It might be possible to play some games by replacing the ROM chip but other than that,
it's a dead old brick.
