I had forgotten about this when AoD first came out, but someone brought it to my attention today that the classic triangular box for Tomb Raider didn't happen. :eek: Do you think this is because AoD wasn't really considered to be classic Tomb Raider?

And how many people want to see the classic triangular box return? :D

Hi Kasia http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Does everyone understand what I mean though? I think PS players never had the triangular box, or so I heard.

I only have it on PC, and I have yet to get a triangular box. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

TR 1-5 all had this box style, so it was the classic style. AoD came along, and it no longer was the triangular shape.

I want the triangular box back! :D

My boxes were always just a normal rectangular shape! We don't get anything special in Austalia :rolleyes:

I think they did away with the triangular box because the gaming industry, on the whole, is trying to reduce the size of the packaging.
I'm not sure if they could do a triangular box with the smaller sized package.

Now that you mention it, it does seem like the box sizes are getting smaller. The Sims, SimCity4, and AoD all have that small box thing going on.

Do you know why this movement is going on?

Cup hun, it's a movement that has been around for some time now. The slogan is "reduce, reuse, recycle" and it's called conservation. The waste of energy and resources used in packageing is huge.

Indeed, think what we (and the planet) would save if we used simple eco-friendly packaging like cardboard pouches for CDs and games instead of great chunky plastic boxes and jewel cases

I don't care if I get a classic box, no box, or just the CD in a paper envelope, I just want a good TR7!
