Ubisoft Says No More Game Manuals

thsoundman writes with this excerpt from The Gamers Blog: “No more manuals? Ubisoft announced last week that they will be ditching the trend of printing instruction manuals for new games under the ‘green’ initiative. While no other publishers have jumped on that ‘green’ train just yet it is likely that others will follow suit. Printed manuals have been part of gaming since you bought PC games in plastic bags. There have been many stand out eras for manuals such as the NES-era booklets to the manuals that accompanied Electronic Arts vinyl-sized game sleeves. Some may argue that the advancement in on screen contextual commands, first level tutorials have made the manual pointless but is this really the case?”
