During the process of collecting French Wing Commander reviews from Joystick, we collected several interesting French advertisements! Before the Electronic Arts buoyout, Origin games were published in other territories (such as Europe) by other companies on a case-by-case basis. Wing Commander was published by Mindscape in Europe, with Ubisoft (!) handling distribution on France for the first two games. Here you can see French versions of the 'sales slick' ads for those games, followed by a variant for the later Amiga release. Look closely at the bottom: as Ubi was not publishing the Amiga version, they literally blacked out that portion of the design. The final ad is for the major French chain FNAC showing Wing Commander II.
