Nice try, Mark. I know the real reason for the DVD cases. They're not the more expensive option to preserve the shipped CDs, they're actually a cost-cutting measure!
For those of you who don't know, the whole habit of using DVD cases for games traces back to some guy, maybe he was a game designer, maybe he was a publisher, maybe he was just some poor schmuck who filled out a software registry card. One day he was cleaning out his office as he did every month. About a quarter of the way through his office he realized that he'd already found at least 78 AOL junk mail CDs, 54 of which came in nice DVD cases. It's something I think we all realize at one point or another. But this guy saw the possibilities of this realization and introduced the world to the best way of re-using AOL crap since coasters.
Lemme guess, Mark, all the matrixgames employees bring in their AOL DVD packages from every week and it provides you with enough free packaging to cover three-times your output, right?
