Another PlayStation Exclusive Could be Coming to PC Soon

The GeForce Now leak from September seems to be getting more and more believable. Steam's database has revealed another PlayStation exclusive that may be coming to PC.

Another game may join the (still) short list of former PlayStation exclusives. Sackboy: The Great Adventure, a spin-off of the iconic LittleBigPlanet has been spotted in the Steam database. The entry was quickly removed, but - as usual - not quickly enough: Netizens (including NeoGAF forum users) managed to capture data from SteamDB on screenshots.

After confirming the release of God of War on PC, Sony would have to make an effort to amaze gamers with the announcement of another console port. Though Sackboy is an otherwise successful game, it's hardly the sort of title that could inspire a burst of enthusiasm on the scale of Kratos' PC launch.

There are two facts to bear in mind. The first one, less important: Sackboy: A Big Adventure was released less than a year ago, which, along with Death Stranding, shows that we expect a relatively quick PC release for at least some PlayStation-exclusive titles.

Second one: the entry has existed in Steam's database for months under the name marmelade - the same name under which Sackboy appeared in the September leak of the GeForce Now service. This would be further confirmation that, contrary to Nvidia's explanations, the list uncovered at the time was indeed for PC titles.

As a reminder: the games listed included (in addition to Sackboy and God of War), Ghost of Tsushima, Returnal and Demon's Souls, among others. The latter title caused a stir a year ago when new video footage mentioned a PC release. Sony quickly released a "corrected" video and assured that the mention was the result of "human error." However, in light of recent reports, one wonders if the "mistake" was in announcing the game's PC release, or in revealing information about it too soon?
