Ubisoft's "Green" Packaging

Ubisoft announces plans to use new "eco-friendly" retail packaging for upcoming Windows and console games. Starting with Shaun White Skateboarding this holiday season, their console games will include digital game manuals (as their PC games have since last month), and starting with the release of the PC edition of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction on April 27 they will introduce "the entertainment industry’s most environmentally-responsible DVD case for all of its future PC titles in North America." The "ecoTech" DVD case is made from 100% recycled polypropylene. Here's word on the impact of digital manuals: "Ubisoft internal data shows that producing one ton of paper used in Ubisoft’s game manuals consumes an average of two tons of wood from 13 trees, with a net energy of 28 million BTU’s (equivalent to average heating and energy for one home/year), greenhouse gases equivalent of over 6,000 lbs of CO2, and wastewater of almost 15,000 gallons."

So we're going to get a price discount because we're no longer getting physical manuals?

Yeah right.

Who are they trying to kid? Alt-tabbing out from the game to read the manual isn't exactly the most user-friendly experience one can have.

My dictionary now has a picture of the Ubisoft logo next to the name 'bollocks'.
