Ubisoft does away with paperback game manuals

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ubisoft does away with paperback game manuals

Can't disagree with them...
I just got a Kindle2 this week end, and despite being a huge book collector ( over 1300 scifi/fantasy books in my collection) I've decided to do away with books and only read e-books from now on...
It's easier to carry around, makes managing my collection easier and at any time anywhere on earth i can order a new book and get it within 60 seconds...( when reading the 7th part of a huge fantasy serie it is very easy to go back to previous books and get up to date very fast...).

And every book written before 1923 is basically free ( integral of Shakespeare work : 2.50$...)

Lets face it, 20 years from now most bookstores and newstands will have disappeared and the e-book market will represent the huge majority of sales..



PS3-Xbox360 gap : 1.5 millions and going up in PS3 favor !

PS3-Wii gap : 20 millions and going down !

They should print it on the reverse side of the case sleeves, I do rarely use it so it's no biggy to me but i can see why it will effect some people



Just skip them altogether. Manuals are for pussies.

That goes for you too, tutorials.

I second this notion. They can't just do away with the manual. That's a tradition! I'll be very upset if other companies follow suit

If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy

Saving the trees... yeah right.. more like it saves them making the manual whilst charging the same price. If you do go ahead UBI-SOFT I'll expect a deduction in the price of the game, seeing that you are saving money by not producing any paperback manuals.
