Differences between game disc and digital game?

It's probably a stupid question but I feel each one has their pros and cons. I've never purchased a digital copy of an Xbox game before (not counting DLCs).

So with digital copies, you don't need a disc, right?

Yeah you install to your HD and play. Its the same exact thing as having a disc copy except there will be no 3 min of disc spinning or whatever.

And of course if xbox live ever goes away or they take the game down permantly you may not be able to download it again.

On top of that, you get 2 copies of the game instead of 1.

So yeah.. GoD is better than most people think.
