Minecraft - you may have heard of it.

It's the indie success story from Swedish developers Mojang which is all about wandering around, hitting things with pickaxes and building really nice things out of blocks.

It has sold over 35 million copies.

And now its set to sell a few more with the release of the game in physical form on PS3. This follows a digital release on PS3 in late 2013 and comes ahead of a version on PS4 and PS Vita in 2014. So there's really no excuse now for you literally not to own the game on every single platform every imagined.

Build, craft and explore a world with the freedom to do whatever you want. Dig down into the unknown depths or build incredible structures, from humble homes to grand cityscapes. Decide to go it alone or bring your friends along for the ride in eight-player online multiplayer and four-player split screen modes. The only limit is your imagination!

The new PS3 Edition will come loaded with all the features you'd expect from the console versions of Minecraft, along with everything that came with the most recent update of the game (update 14), including Emeralds, Ender Chests, potatoes and more.

Minecraft: Boxed Version (not the official name) will be on shelves from May 14.
