PlayStation doesn’t have a singular mascot, but Sackboy can be counted among the many iconic characters on Sony’s platform. Introduced via LittleBigPlanet on PS3, the hessian hero has appeared on every PlayStation console since, and that extends to PS5 as well. While Sackboy: A Big Adventure drops the creative aspect associated with the franchise, it seems Sumo Digital has put a lot of effort into realising the titular character in far more detail on the next-gen system.
Just take a look at this simple comparison from Twitter user @Nibellion, showing the difference between the character in LittleBigPlanet 3 and A Big Adventure:
As is evident in the new story trailer for the PS5 launch title, Sackboy himself looks far more realistic — you can see all the fuzz on the edges of his stitched together scalp. It’s an impressive upgrade.

Having grown up alongside PlayStation, Stephen has developed a wide knowledge of video games, from AAA blockbusters to the smallest indie gems. He also has the Platinum for The Witness, so there’s that.
It’s a shame we don’t get the Physical Edition with real life Sackboy, in the UK. I’d buy that for a dollar.
Sackboy is amazing! That ps5 screen looks brilliant fair play, will be picking sackboy adventure up at some point for sure, glad they decided to make it a game and not with all the make your own level like LBP although I did enjoy them but now all the effort goes into the game which can’t be a bad thing
@JapaneseSonic Haha. Fair play! I hope you do. I don’t think I’ve ever regretted sticking it on randomly.
I wonder what the PS4 version looks like in comparison, this game looks very promising and I am tempted, perhaps not for launch but soon after
