How much memory does Minecraft use?

Hello, I am new to xbox...we just plugged it in and it is the 4GB version. I am understanding that you have to download minecraft.??? how much memory does this take? is there plenty of room on the xbox for this?

Does it take more memory to download a game VS. buying a game and using the disc?

Thanks for any help.!!!

In terms of HDD space, its around 300MB (I think).

As for memory (RAM) usage, it would be closely the same regardless of whether its downloaded or played from disc. I hope that helps.

Thank you!

just to be clear minecraft doesn't come on disc.

When you go to download a game and are about to purchase it it tells you on the right hand side how much memory is required .


When the game is downloading a bar will come up and say X percent of X amount is now being downloaded.


For the game save files go to systems - memory and click on the game it will tel you what the save files take up.
