Its not about being environment friendly really. That excuse is just BS.
They just don't want to pay for it. Even tho most games cost around $60 a pop....

Environmental friendliness has NOTHING to do with it :P

But at least their cheapskate motivations have a grain of positivity in them, I just hate seeing them use that as an excuse when pure bottom line is the only reason.

Q is, why do they even sell games over the counter any more? They could be REALLY green by switching to a DL model only.

[Edit] Haha logicearth and I were on the same page (so to speak) there [\edit]

quite a few people don't have access to fast enough internet to download the games in a timely manner, so there needs to a physical medium for those people.

I agree. Environmental friendly my ass. I'd rather have a physical manual instead. I'm not really interested in reading a manual on my monitor. I'm glad I quit buying their games a few years ago then. Good luck EA, you're just going into the toilet now. Hope you like it.

And will they be publishing these in a proprietary format like PDF? Whichever format they choose, I'm sure it will drum up business for the proprietary format owner (a planned affiliation?). I guess I am cynical this way
