If you're planning to get the game, you might as well get the best Sackboy: A Big Adventure price going. And we're here to help you get your head around it all by laying out a look into the various versions of the PlayStation-exclusive game.

The first thing you should know ahead of your Sackboy: A Big Adventure purchase is that this game isn't a creator-focused title, which is unlike the Little Big Planet series that made Sackboy's name. Instead, it's a more story-driven 3D platformer, which lets you explore the world that Sackboy and his friends call home either on your own or in up to three-player co-op, although online co-op has been delayed until later this year.

Since Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a PlayStation exclusive, that release date also makes it one of the PS5 launch games, but it'll still be available on the PS4. If you opt for the current-gen version, however, be aware that it's also a PS5 upgrade game - you'll be able to take advantage of Sackboy on PS5 at no extra cost, which is particularly useful if you've got your eye on the PS4-exclusive Special Edition.

Whichever one you go for, we are here to help you get the best Sackboy: A big Adventure price or deal.

Getting the most out of Sackboy: A Big Adventure

As with the majority of the games that are spanning two generations, Sackboy: A Big Adventure will run best on the PS5 - next-gen hardware will mean faster loading times, better graphics, and an all-around improved experience over what even the most powerful PS4 consoles can offer. If you're planning on buying a current-gen console and upgrading later, keep your eye out for great PS5 price bundles after the new console arrives.

Wherever you're playing, however, you can make sure you get the best experience with some audiovisual upgrades. Grab one of our best gaming monitors or best gaming TVs to make Sackboy look better than ever, and grab one of the best PS4 headsets (or update your gaming sound system) to make sure you never miss a note of the adorable soundtrack.

Finally, you'll want to make sure that everyone can play. Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a perfect family game, but with that online co-op delay, you'll want to ensure you've got some of the best PS4 controllers or queue up your DualSense price so that the whole squad can play at once.
