Ditto, especially with how that recycle image comes off as kinda pretentious: you can't actually go and recycle those, it's more about using less plastic then something that can be broken down and reused as we'd normally think of recycling. Hopefully they switch to thinner plastic there, or even eventually abandon though that'd probably require almost the rest of the entertainment industry turning its back on those for whatever reason. Really should be kept for $5 DVDs, not $60 games.Ew. Hate the recycled cases full of holes
Resolution is useless, and player data's there, just look at the number on the Wii Remote. They definitely should put the amount of space required however, especially if games start wanting to make installs.So, yeah, guess they really are leaving all the resolution/save/player etc. data off the back of the box. What the hell, NoA.
So you need an origin account to access online features, but you need to be 13+ to have an origins account - but the game is rated E. how does that work? Other than just outright lying about your age (but then I think on ps3 is checks your age against the PSN account)
OT though I guess.
Talk about a terrible in-game shot for EA to use on the back of the box. Wow that's awful.
I took that picture to see if blue light would reflect off of it. It seems to me that the disc is blu-ray like (blu laser)Is the disc surface blueish and scratch resistant akin to BRD? Looks like it from the picture.
Thank youNicely taken pics, OP.
My thoughts exactly. Most websites were not showing pics of the spine.Spine design looks nice!
It is smaller by like a mm in length. But the plastic is thinner than the Wii case as well.Is it my eyes, or is that case smaller than the Wii case?
Online head-to-headThe Nintendo Network feature on the back of the box is difficult to read, can you tell us what it says?
Origin client when they had that $20 off promotion. I bought some game for cheap and used the $20 towards the preorder.Where did you order from OP?
Me too! Consistent with 3DS.Love how they've carried over those little square icons on the spine from the 3DS boxes.
No manual, it's a health and safety sleeve saying the manual is on their website or will most likely be digital like the Vita.What does the manual say about online?
And I tend to think of whether the savings really are worth it. Cart based games, it's not a big deal and youd can make good use of the 3DS holes for the design (too bad NoA doesn't give a shit, tries it once with Kid Icarus then abandons it again), but with discs? ESPECIALLY in this way? It's like the packaging equivalent of chainmail bikinis, except penny pinching instead of fan service.Stl bloody horrible though.

They don't do this in other countries, and Walmart IS partially a factor. Well, and the size of the US: shipping over a small area like Japan or much of Europe really isn't a worthwhile savings, but it adds up here. Technically it's not even penny pinching, they actually may be saving several thousands or millions by using packaging like this. But like said I think we'd be better off focusing first on what will be disposed: fewer boxes of plastic bags for example probably WOULD help a lot there, and it's those you're going to be seeing on the side of the road or being blown around by the wind, not a disc case.I don't think it has really anything to do with penny pinching. Just more about not wasting materials and hurting the environment.
Just got my Gamestop automated call for Assassins Creed 3 tommorrow
The disc is thicker too or something. The edges are well rounded, when I grab it it just feels...different lol. Also, this is such a tease because I have to wait 6 days to play it
