When does Newegg charge the card, is it like Amazon and they charge when they ship?

Nice. I've always wanted to try Minecraft but I refuse to pay for digital-only. Will definitely order this.

@VGC17: NewEgg charges when they ship.

Awesome, thanks! I have it digitally, but I prefer my games in discs.

Dammit forgot my credit card....

I don't even own an Xbox but I'm getting this.

Wish PC had a disk version, it would run so much better.....
Imagine PS3/4 with MC....

If this came with new achievements I'd probably re-buy it at this price.

Well, second cheapest actually. Preorders at Best Buy for the download code were $14.99. Makes me wish I waited to pick it up since I always prefer physical media.

Meh, digital doesn't bother me. I prefer disc, but I'm alright with Minecraft being digital on my Xbox. Thanks for the post, OP.

Yeah I know, that's when I got mine. But I don't count that since it only last a few hours and a lot of people missed out :/

I was kind of hoping they might have some pre-order exclusives/bonus items, but I haven't seen anything.

My kids and I love this game. Virtual Legos. :)

Disc version means my kids can play online on any 360 in the house and not only the one with the original download. Am I right?

hmm, Minecraft is one of the games I think I might prefer to have a digital version of. Just being able to jump in every now and then seems a lot more convenient. Newegg charges me tax as well, so this is really only a $2 savings:cry:

guess I should just hope it one day goes on an XBLA sales

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

This is why I will be buying the disc version. 3 kids + 3 360's + 1 digital copy of minecraft = lots of fighting :)

I have 3 360's too and always download my xbla/dlc on the kid's main console in the family room and then if I want to play the game on the 360 in my room I log on to my account on that 360. So you can get 2 consoles at a time using a digital copy that way. But that doesn't help with my daughter who has her 360 at school so I still prefer physical copies where possible.

How far do people think this disc version will realistically drop?

This is exactly why. They've mentioned the possibility of Minecraft showing up on PSN and Vita after the exclusivity deal with Microsoft is over.

I would rebuy it on my Vita if it ever makes it on the console.

Any word if Minecraft can be installed from disc? If it's like other arcade-on-disc games, then the answer will be no.

The disc release has been pushed back to June 4.

Major Nelson: "FYI: In order to include the very latest content, the retail version for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has been delayed until June 4 (US)"

How is the OUYA not getting it when it runs Android?

Now, I'm not saying it will get it "officially", but I'm sure you can get it on there somehow.
