EA Sports ditches game manuals

FIFA goes green.

FIFA maker EA Sports has ditched physical game manuals.

Instead, EA Sports will include instructions accessed from within the game, Kotaku reports.

EA Sports aims to support more environmentally friendly game production, the company said.

French company Ubisoft was the first to abolish game manuals. Ubisoft worked out that one ton of game-manual paper costs the planet roughly 13 trees, and making that amount of paper pumps out 6000lbs of CO2 gas and 15000 gallons of waste water.
