Or rather, Sackperson. See, in our minds, the adorable player characters in Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet are anything you want them to be, yet immediately recognizable all the same. Whether boy or girl, plain or costumed, the shape and peppy movements of the Sack people are unmistakable. Plus, the plethora of customization options means anyone can tailor their own fabric-and-zipper friend, though the default model is charming all on his own. And any PlayStation character can make the Sack transition. M-rated fare of all shapes and sizes--Kratos, Ezio Auditore, Solid Snake, Nathan Drake--instantly look adorable once Sackified.
It seems like Sony itself desperately wants Sack-gender-of-your-choosing to be the face of PlayStation, given the huge marketing pushes behind LBP and its sequel. Plus, Sackboy’s got the prerequisite kart racer and handheld spinoff to be eligible for mascot status! Alas, we feel like it’ll be a long while--if ever--before we see our Sack buddies on PS4, if only due to an attachment to all the user-made LBP content on PS3. But until Sony proves us wrong, we’ll always think of Sackboy and Sackgirl as the PlayStation mascots.
