Sony’s coronavirus sweetener proved a massive success, as more than 10 million people opted to download free copies of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey. The tidbit comes courtesy of a CNET interview with PlayStation boss Jim Ryan, who also told Games Industry that the Play At Home initiative was important for “financially strapped” fans.
In addition to the giveaway for PlayStation 4 owners, the manufacturer also pledged a $10 million support fund for indie studios, which will be shared by around 100 teams. “It's easy for me sitting here with someone paying my salary,” Ryan explained. “But if you're an indie with not much money in the bank, and you've got a game that might be within touching distance of getting made and getting published, but you're running out of cash... that's a pretty rough situation to find yourself in.”

For the players!
Fantastic games! Played them all twice and love them all! Love to see what Naughty Dog can do on the PS5 hardware.
Good job king 👑 sony.word up son
Free Quality game well appreciated from me. Saved me £8.99...........so guess what I bought Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
@Grimwood whats wrong with the other 90 million who didn't download them!!!
@Bioth For the players indeed. Really good games. Very fun to play alone or with friends and family. Stay safe, cheers and happy gaming to us all.
My favourite part was Francis stakes skeleton still having full beard and moustache - for recognition purposes probably, otherwise skeletons pretty much alike. Journey was worth a play through but glad I didn't have to pay for it
I paid $100 for the Uncharted Collection. No regrets.
I told 3 of my friends with a ps4 about it and also my sister. Was really cool. I'm trying to play through Uncharted but bit slow progress. I completed them all before so may just do that instead until I have run out of back log which is probably like 40+ (Switch, ps4 and ps3) games long, not even mentioning a GC, Wii, Ps2, PsP and ps1 titles I never played. May have to forget about those tbh. xD
