EA Sports games decide to go green with there game releases. Starting with Fight Night: Champion, EA Sports games will no longer carry the paper manuals going the same route as Ubisoft. There will be a on screen option to view the instruction manual. Rob Semsey confirmed that the decision to drop the manuals are “an effort to support more environmentally friendly production of game”.
I think that this change was inevitable with most games coming out with tutorials and walkthroughs in game.
