Earlier today, one of the industry's biggest publishers announced plans to do away with the shiny paper manuals we've all come to know and some of us have come to love. Ubisoft, publisher of the Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia, and Tom Clancy series' of games, is set to eliminate manuals from their PS3 and XBox 360 packaging in lieu of digital manuals available on the disc. The company calls it a green initiative. I call it a bit dissapointing.
