It always seemed certain that No Man's Sky would receive a retail release, but Sony confirmed as much this week, stating that the ambitious outing will be available on Blu-ray in Europe and North America. However, if we're going to point out bad box art – DOOM's atrocious artwork immediately springs to mind – then we should also champion the beautiful covers as well. Take a guess which category Hello Games' space sim sits in.

As we mentioned in our preview, the game's been inspired by the art on old 70s sci-fi covers, and the box does a brilliant job of capturing that look. In fact, this artwork is so tasty that we'd actually buy a full-size print of it. Remember, the game will be receiving an equally stunning special edition, which comes with a 48-page art book for you to pore over.
