UPDATE: Naughty Dog seem to be taking the mistake in good spirits, looks like we will get the full details in the next day or so.
Well… that hit a few hours too early. See you in the AM. G'night y'all.

UPDATE 2: Naughty Dog has confirmed that the collection is real, and it will launch October 7th in North America and October 9th in the UK. Bluepoint Games will be handling the ports & an announcement trailer has also been released. The campaigns have been remastered to run in 1080p and 60fps.The collection will contain the main three console releases, with Vita exclusibe Uncharted: Golden Abyss not making the cut.
Buying the collection will also grant players access to the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer beta. According to the US pre-order page on the official site this will be a full priced release, coming in at $59.99. If you are in the UK, the pre-order price is £49.99 , anyone who does so will get the following bonsuses:
• Seven single-player skins reliving some of Drake’s most iconic outfits.
• A golden AK47 and a golden 92FS pistol.
• A PS4™ dynamic theme.
It is unclear whether the multiplayer will make the cut, but according to the current packshot it looks like only the single player campaigns will be coming to the new generation.
According to Amazon the collection will have a photo mode too, allowing players to take pictures of all the games and capture all the action.
Some eagle-eyed users on the PlayStation Store in the US have spotted a banner for Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. There has been no confirmation yet from Naughty Dog about the collection, but the inclusion of this on the store may point towards an imminent announcement.
Given the amount of remasters that have been releasing on the PlayStation 4, and the release on Uncharted 4 early next year, it comes as no surprise that this collection may be just around the corner. It would make sense for the collection to release in the run up to Christmas this year, plugging what is quite a sizeable hole in the PS4 release schedule. Is this a good move? Or is there further evidence of remaster fatigue setting in?
