EA dumps manuals for digital

Written by David Stellmack

Follows UbiSoft’s lead on future titles
Electronic Arts has become the second publisher to announce that for future releases they will be more environmentally friendly by eliminating printed manuals and going digital.

The move makes Electronic Arts the second big publisher to follow UbiSoft’s lead and do away with the paper manuals included within future releases. The just-released Fight Night Champion is the first title to go with digital with its manual.

So far, the news has met with mixed opinions from the gaming community at large. Some already have expressed that they will miss the paper manuals, while others have said that they don’t care one way or the other.

Sources tell us that we should expect other publishers to move in this direction going forward, which actually comes as no real surprise; besides being more environmentally conscious, it also saves the publisher the significant cost of printed manuals for each title release.
