Electronic Arts is doing away with the practice of having paper manuals in its forthcoming retail games, including its PC game titles. The publisher announced today that from now on its game manuals will be made available on the game disk itself. In addition game manuals can be downloaded from EA's web site.
In addition to eliminating its paper manuals in its retail games, EA has started using the Reduced Material DVD Style Cases for its retail game releases, including its PC titles. The cases are made of polypropylene and require less material and energy to make. They are also easier to recycle. EA says these efforts and others steps it is taking to "go green" will reduce the amount of printed material in its game packages by 40 percent.
