EA is losing its Direction(s)

Many companies have gone down this altruistic “green” path in an effort to save our planet, but in reality the only thing they are preserving are their own wallets.  EA is no different.  They have announced that they are cutting all physical manuals from their games to be more “environmentally friendly” (*cough, bullshit, cough*).  I agree that maybe physical manuals can be replaced by digital ones, but don’t make it seem like you are doing gamers a favor EA.  They had originally announced that this was only going to pertain to their EA Sports lineup in favor of video based tutorials, but have since changed it to anything that is being published by the company.  This is just fantastic.  What will the industry take from us next?  Box Art?  Factory Shrink Wrap?  Call me old fashion, but the manual is a sacred part of the videogame package.  EA will no doubt start a trend with this blasphemous move, but money is green and that is what they aim to be.  The days of old are a changing and those of us who enjoy a simple manual will soon have to go without.  If you are as outraged as I am, scream at the top of your lungs, or comment above.
