Sackboy: A Big Adventure - How Sony Tackles The Generational Divide

Digital Foundry writes, "From my perspective, no console launch is truly complete without an excellent platform game and thankfully, Sony and developer Sumo Digital deliver exactly that for PlayStation 5 with Sackboy: A Big Adventure. It's a beautiful game, and a fascinating example of how one developer aims to straddle the generational divide - while Sackboy champions the power of PlayStation 5, there's also support for PS4 and PS4 Pro too. The question is, has Sumo Digital delivered the kind of magic we expect from a platform exclusive next-gen launch title but at the same time still deliver a good experience for owners of existing PlayStation hardware?"

It's a beautiful game. The levels that are timed to match the licensed music are almost too cool - platforming to Uptown Funk is definitely a highlight!

Look what they're working with, CD is just a terrible ip. You know something is shit if Terry Crews can't save it.

It makes me sad because I loved Crackdown. Sucks that they haven't been able to expand on that original idea.

Most launch title platformers are usually crappy games. This again shows how great the launch games on ps5 are compared to other console launches.

So many great games to play. both new releases and older improved games offered through ps plus collection.

That couples with new games offered through plus plus every month and new additions to psnow every get the best gaming experience with playstation5.

Not to mention the new dual sense.

"Most launch title platformers are usually crappy games" and Sony offers us 2 amazing ones - one of which is free with every console! LOVE Astro Bot!

I've yet to get my hands on the ps5 but can't wait for stock to normalize so I don't have to do anything extraordinary to get one.

I don't think that's true.
