What is 1600 msp in pounds (euro's?)?

Other than that, the question you really have to ask yourself is "do I want to go change the disk every time I want to play minecraft?" Personally the answer was no. If I had to go change the disk every time I wanted to play minecraft, i'd never play it. So I just downloaded it.

They're the same game. But if your Xbox were to die and you didn't have a physical copy you would have nothing.

If your xbox died you couldn't play it anyway. If you got another you could DL it again.

They both play the same game.
They both don't take much space on the HDD
They both cost the same
Up to four people can play on the same screen

The only thing different about them is
The disc version has the all the updates up to date
You don't need to download the game on to your HDD
