    Default EA ditching printed game manuals

    EA has quietly done away with printed manuals for its games, instead replacing them with manuals included on the game discs.

    EA Sports spokesperson Rob Semsey has confirmed to Kotaku that the firm did away with manuals as of March 1, marked by the release of Fight Night Champion.



    The move is to make its game production friendlier to the environment, according to Semsey, although we're sure the monetary benefits have a lot to do with it.

    Remember the days of coming home after buying a game and reading the manual in the car?

    That's so stupid, ubisoft did the same thing. First they use less material to make the case, making it ugly in the process, now this. Next they just toss the disk in your lap. I'm an AVID game collector and love a weighty feel to the case, instead of this flimsy crap we get nowadays...

    Remember the days of coming home with a cassette tape in your hands and waiting 20 minutes for it to load Space Invaders on your Commodore 64? Ah, the good old days......

    remember the old days when you try to figure out how to play the game and you can't find the manual.

    Ok, will the game will be any cheaper when there is no case and manual?

    I'd wager............No. People should start posting that on their forums, asking if those cost savings will be passed onto consumers since we're getting less and we expect to pay less now as well.
