Naughty Dog: 80% Of PS4 Owners Haven't Played Uncharted
Back in June 2014, Sony said that about 1/3 of PlayStation 4 owners had never owned the PS3.
Later, Sony updated that statistic to about 50 percent and as such, they've looked to remaster back-catalog titles to take advantage of the newcomers. We've already seen plenty of HD upgrades on PS4, including The Last Of Us: Remastered and the recently released Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
Now, here's a new statistic from developer Naughty Dog: According to what community strategist Eric Monacelli said in a recent MCV interview, the vast majority of PS4 owners have never touched an Uncharted game:
"We did a lot of research and discovered that about 80 percent of the people that own a PS4 have never played Uncharted, period. That was one of the reasons why we thought remastering it would be a good idea."
Monacelli added that the team's expectations for the Collection are "high" and Sony has tossed some advertising dollars it as well (I just saw a TV commercial, in fact). If you haven't seen it yet, check out some excellent gameplay and this sweet PS4 bundle is awfully enticing, too.
