[Updated] Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Arrives in October With Remastered Graphics
Sony has officially revealed the existence of the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection bundle that includes all of the previous titles and makes them playable on the PS4. Thankfully, it's real and we can pre-order now or wait until October to purchase the Uncharted collection.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection has been confirmed by Naughty Dog and Sony, coming October 9th 2015 for the PS4.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection has now been confirmed by Sony, with a release date of October 7th in Europe and October 9th in North America, and it'll definitely be coming to the PS4.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, which includes the single player campaigns for Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception, will also give you exclusive access to the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta once that goes live, which is still TBA.
All three of the Uncharted games have been remastered to run at 1080P and at 60FPS with updated textures, lighting, models and higher polygon counts throughout. Of course with the remastered versions there will be new trophies to earn and a new Photo Mode.
If you happen to be in a pre-ordering mood, you'll get some interesting extras with the Nathan Drake Pack. This pack includes a slew of different player skins and outfits to make your Drake unique, a Golden AK-47 and a Golden Beretta 92FS. Digital pre-ordering also nets you a cool Nathan Drake Collection PS4 dynamic theme.

After the discovery of the Uncharted bundle through the mobile PlayStation Store site the creative director for Naughty Dog sent a tweet substantiating its existence and reassuring us that it wasn't a prank, but that someone was just a little too trigger happy that controls the PlayStation Store website.
Well... that hit a few hours too early. See you in the AM. G'night y'all.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to confirm whether the bundle will just be a discounted collection for the PS3 or if they are indeed remade and remastered versions for the PS4. One would hope that they're for the newer console, however.
More details will be revealed soon, and we'll be updating as they come in.
