Ubisoft Goes Green With Digital Manuals

Wed, Apr 21, 2010

Casual, Console

Earlier this week, Ubisoft announced plans to have digital manuals in all of their PS3 and Xbox 360 titles, in an effort to cut down on the wasted trees used to create paper manuals that many gamers ultimately never read. The first game that will come with this setup is Shawn White’s Skateboarding, which is set for a release in late 2010.

“Ubisoft is often recognized for making great games, but it’s a special privilege to be the industry leader at saving trees,” said Laurent Detoc, president of Ubisoft North America, as reported by Industry Gamers. “Eco-friendly initiatives are important to the global community and introducing in-game digital manuals on Xbox 360 and PS3 is just the latest example of Ubisoft’s ongoing commitment to being a more environmentally conscious company.”

Whether or not this announcement was made in an effort to celebrate Earth Day, or if the event on April 22 is simply a coincidence is unknown. However, what is known is another effort Ubisoft plans to put into place concerning their PC game cases, which will also be going green. For these, the company will now use “100 percent-recycled polypropylene “ecoTech” DVD cases.”

It will be interesting to see if more companies go the “digital manual” route in the future.
