Despite being a collection that just features remastered games, Sony believes that Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection has the potencial to be a system seller this Christmas. Sony states that a huge number of gamers that plan to purchase a PS4 never played Uncharted, and this will help sell more systems.
"The Nathan Drake Collection certainly has the power to be a system seller this Christmas. It offers fantastic value as a gifting proposition, giving newcomers the chance to pick up a PlayStation 4 with three great games at a very competitive price," PlayStation UK product manager Joe Palmer told MCV UK.
"PlayStation's audience base has also changed significantly since the original Uncharted games were released, so there's a huge number of gamers looking to buy a PS4 who may never have played these games before.
"We aim to appeal to several audiences; the fans who want to play through the series again in all its remastered glory; the action-adventure fans who are new to PlayStation; previous-generation players who are considering an upgrade to PS4."
In addition, Naughty Dog also expects the game to do very well, taking in consideration the fact that the large majority of PS4 players never played Uncharted before. "We did a lot of research and discovered that about 80 percent of the people that own a PS4 have never played Uncharted, period," said Naughty Dog's Eric Monacelli.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is out now.
