In an attempt to go "green", EA has decided to ditch printed game manuals in future game releases and move onto distributing manuals via game discs.
In a recent interview, EA Sports spokesperson Rob Semsey had confirmed that they will not print game manuals as of March 1. The first game which made the switch was Fight Night Champion. According to Semsey, the move was to make the production of games friendlier to the environment.
It is still unclear if this move was only for the EA Sports sector only or an EA wide move. EA's move mimics Ubisoft's decision, they ditched printed game manuals back in April 2010.
