Sony's latest PC port was released on October 27. Charming 3D platformer Sackboy: A Big Adventure has failed to attract crowds since then. The bigges number of concurrent users on Steam so far was a mere 610 people. The average result on the other hand is between 200 and 500 players. Admittedly, the game also came out on Epic Games Store platform, but it's hard to expect the situation to be dramatically different there.
Recently we wrote about the poor launch of another PlayStation hit on PC. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection was played by 7973 people simultaneously on the day of its release. Sackboy, therefore, looks really miserable compared to Nathan Drake. Below are the results of other Sony ports for their highest number of active players (as of today; via Push Square).
- God of War - 73,529 (score reached 10 months ago)
- Marvel's Spider-Man - 66,436 (scored 3 months ago)
- Horizon: Zero Dawn - 56,557 (scored 2 years ago)
- Days Gone - 27,450 (2 years ago)
- Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection - 10,851 (9 days ago)
- Sackboy: The Great Adventure - 610 (2 days ago)
So it seems Sackboy has reached a record for (un)popularity among Sony ports. This may be influenced by a number of factors, such as the game's rather high price. However, it is worth noting that player interest does not translate directly into the number of copies of the game sold. Besides Sackboy: A Big Adventure collects very positive reviews on Steam, so the title may be a commercial failure, but at least not an artistic one.
