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.

But I like having discs.

Me too. And a printed manual is nice. I don't care if it is in paper or plastic, or the form factor.

I would rather have a factory-pressed disk than a "burn it yourself" version.

We have a good recycling program where we live, and we throw about 4x as much into the recycling bin as we do the garbage can. And paper packaging is probably more environmentally friendly if you are recylcing....
