All signs point to Sackboy

The gigantic GeForce Now leak from November 2021 also hinted that Sackboy would be coming to PC. The datamine appeared to reveal several unannounced games, including a PC version of Sackboy. While Nvidia later clarified that the inclusion of a title in the leak was “neither a confirmation nor an announcement of any game”, much of the leak proved to be true. He successfully predicted the release of the PC port of God of War, the remaster of GTA Trilogy and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Edition.
Sony has ported a number of original PlayStation games to PC in recent years. Horizon Zero Dawn made the leap in 2020, Marvel’s Spider-Man hit Steam earlier this month, while Uncharted will arrive in October. If Sackboy: A Big Adventure joins them, PC gamers are in for a real treat. We consider it to be one of the best PS5 games on the market, calling it “the surprise gem in Sony’s lineup of PS5 releases”.
A charming family-friendly platformer, Sackboy stands out for its inventive level design and precision platforming that is as welcoming to newbies as it is enjoyable to experienced players. While it didn’t make our list of the best co-op games, its four-player local multiplayer makes it a perfect choice for the family.
