The LittleBigPlanet Trilogy Might Be Coming To Steam
Sony Keeps Porting Games To PC!
Sony Interactive is known for its critically acclaimed video games developed exclusively for PlayStation consoles. But during the last few years, Sony has deviated from its typical course and is now trying to establish itself in the PC gaming sector. Following recent releases, the LittleBigPlanet trilogy may be coming to Steam.
A few new entries have been added to SteamDB’s database – known for tracking the changes made to Steam’s backend – suggesting a possible PC port of the LittleBigPlanet trilogy. All three games are interconnected by something called Gorilla Engine.
It is important to note that Sony shut down the online servers of LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2 back in 2021. This means if the games make their way to PC, Sony will likely bring them back to life.
The Steam platform offers a sizable game catalog and an active community and is the preferred choice among PC gamers. The LittleBigPlanet trilogy would have a larger audience and possibly attract a new user base if released on Steam.
Additionally, the LittleBigPlanet series heavily relies on user-generated material, which is supported by the Steam platform to a great extent. Players may find new levels and inspiration from the Steam community should Sony make the servers online again.
However, LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2 were initially released on the PS3. Sony has shown an evident hesitation regarding PS3 ports, even for modern Sony consoles like PS4 and PS5. Combining the complexity of porting PS3-exclusive games and Sony’s reluctance to revisit PS3 games, it is difficult to see the trilogy coming to PC.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure was also released on PC recently. The game performed poorly, falling behind popular PlayStation games like Marvel’s Spider-Man and God of War. However, a PC release is not entirely out of the question.
Previously, SteamDB hinted at the Returnal PC Port – another PlayStation-exclusive title – before it was announced. Fans of the series should keep an eye out for any official announcements, as a Steam release for the LittleBigPlanet trilogy would be a welcome addition to the platform.
