Update: Did Amazon lie? Quite possibly. This info comes from Kevin Butler, no not THE Kevin Butler. Just a guy who thinks he is Kevin Butler. See here
If you ask me this all seems too coincidental. Why would Amazon post a game with the same name and design of this mans art? It could be very simple, but it could also be much more complex. Let's hope for the latter of the two, because that means an Uncharted 3 announcement is coming soon.
Playstation Lifestyle has uncovered that the artist, Albert Ng, does work for a company that has been employed by Sony Computer Entertainment. Quite a coincidence, eh?

QUOTE(Albert Ng (in an e-mail to Hooked Gamers)) said:I'm sorry to say, but the artwork referenced in the article that is mine isn't for the new Uncharted 3 game, but was for an architecture class I took earlier this year. For the assignment, I was asked to take an existing Intellectual Property and come up with new levels for it, so I had decided to try my hand at Uncharted since it was the game of the year and wanted to work for Naughty Dog. I had clearly stated that in a caption on the bottom of my post to hopefully clarify things for viewers, but I guess it was looked over by amazon france. With that said, all the work on my blog site was created by me and it has no affiliation with the Uncharted team or Naughty Dog and their projects whatsoever. I apologize for the impression and mix up it has given. Thanks.
QUOTE(Update: Albert Ng has added)As for my work for Tyler West Studio, i've worked as a contracted concept artist for him on various projects which I can't reveal because of a non disclosure agreement, but I can fully confirm to you that I didn't not by any means work for the Uncharted series.
