Eco-Box: a greener way to protect games

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Eco-Box: a greener way to protect games

I buy quite a few games... In the last two months I have had to return 3 "eco-boxes" because of damaged cases. Personally, they suck.

Oh well, I'm done with this thread.

the two issues go hand in hand. you cant bring one up with out the other coming to mind. but yeah im done too im not in the mood to argue international policies right now. Good day to you sir



I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!!

Because we don't want care about the generations to come, and don't want to be prepared for when we run out. There is not an infinte amount of oil in the world, and there is no reason to not make it last as long as possible.



I forgot to add that the case feels flimsy, but it seems to do it's intended function(protecting the disc).



Doh, forgot EA published L4D2, don't know why I thought Activision.

And yeah, the cases are actually sturdy enough with the way they're built. It worried me when I first saw the MW2 case when I brought it home but after fiddling with it and deciding if I should get one of my extra cases I decided it would protect my game fine.

It's not really about how much oil there is in the world. It's about how much of that oil can be extracted in a given year and at what cost.

The supply of oil available per year has been basically flat for the past few years, while demand keeps increasing. Hence the price of oil is creeping back towards $100 per barrel and we are looking for ways to lower consumption and find new sources of energy.

PS3 cases can easily use this as well. It's not about being small enough, it's them being able to do more.

PS.: Saving plastic usage contributes to making our oil reserves last longer, a very good thing, that has nothing to do with global warming.

Eco-box has blu-ray cases as well...

The biggest problem is the global human population and not consumption.  We cannot continue to grow the population without over pilaging resources and creating unsustainable environmental issues.  Everything has a balance and sustainment breaking point.  With the population of humans on the planet constantly growing we get closer to that breaking point every day.  The population of any given medium sized mamal species (like we are) should by in the 10's and low 100's of millions...  NOT billions...

If the human population was 500 million rather then 8 billion, there would not be near as many environmental issues.
