Default Minecraft XBOX edition will be released on disc

Mojang and their XBOX partners have announced that the XBOX edition of Minecraft will soon be released on disc as a boxset.

playxbla.com As if Skin Pack 4 Wasn’t Cool Enough…Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Retail Disc Version!

The retail disc will arrive in stores in the US on April 30, and will cost $19.99. The retail package is also coming to Australia, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Singapore, and Taiwan in early June.
Previously, the only way you could buy Minecraft off-the-shelf was to buy a giftcard that was linked to an un-activated Mojang account for the PC version. With these new products, players will get an "up-to-date" version of the Xbox release and can update it as per an online purchase. The cost will be the same. The real advantage is that it will enable XBOX players who don't use XBOX live to purchase the game. ( but will need to update it).

Must say that compared to other console games Minecraft seems to have a very competitive price
EVE Online characters:
Daedalus II
ex-CEO TOGOA, Daedalus III slave of Daedalus II
GW2 characters:
Little Molok Asura Engineer

If it is $19.99 in the US, it's probably $90 in Australia :

Oh come on, that's a bit extreme. It will only be around $60, I'm sure.
