Green Game Packaging - Paper or Plastic?

Wal-Mart promotes green gaming has word that the retail giant has met with representatives of Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo to discuss making console gaming more environmentally friendly. Topics included giving system lower power standby modes, and the possibility of reversing the recent evolution to plastic game packaging by returning to paper and cardboard packaging, with Wal-Mart saying that would reduce the industry's carbon footprint by the equivalent of taking 4000 cars off the road.

Actually paper bags are worse than plastic bags. It all goes in the landfill (unless you recycle in which case it doesn't matter) and landfills are designed NOT to let stuff biodegrade. There are garbage excavations they've done into landfills which dig up readable newspapers from 50 years ago.

That being the case, plastic takes up less VOLUME than paper bags, so we can have more room in a landfill, thus plastic is better.

I imagine similar arguments could be made about game packaging.
