Ubisoft to Stop Producing Paper Game Manuals

by on April 21, 2010

It’s good to see games companies doing their bit for the environment. Ubisoft, publisher of many games including Assassin’s Creed and Prince of Persia, is set to eliminate manuals from their PS3 and XBox 360 packaging, replacing them with digital manuals available on the disc, much like Sony did with the PSOne classics.

The company calls it a green initiative – thought the change will also save money for Ubisoft, in addition to helping the environment. Once question now remains – will you miss paperback manuals? To be honest, I’ve never really looked at a game manual except for the artwork and screenshots.

How do you feed about the change? Do you believe other publishers will follow Ubisoft’s lead?
