Back when I used to buy games at a store, I used to read the manuals while waiting for people to finish their shopping, and then while the game installed. But nowadays most of the games I purchase are either downloads, or they are at my doorstep when I get back from work, so no time to read anymore. I do want all the stats in-game though, like in Drakensang and Anarchy Online that I remember, everything was there with a right click of the mouse (well, except the obscure parry/evade rules for Drakensang, those I had to read in some site, and not sure I fully understood it even then).
I think another issue is the appearance of the Prima Guides. What used to be manuals included in the game turned into 'strategy guides' and you have to fork some $15-$20 extra just for that (which I'm sure the game developer gets a nice bit of that for something they used to do for free)
