He said it in a interview for PlayStaion Spain: (At 4:34)

https://youtu.be/aPeYJiVPGHg?t=275

In my personal opinion this is our strongest beginning, opening sequence for games since the Last of Us, which was obviously very emotional, but I think this is probably one of the best opening sequences as well. That feeling of wanting to keep playing and wanting to know where it goes continues the entire game.

The wording was kind of confusing, but looks like he thinks it is their best intro yet. So yeah... brace yourselves, greatness is coming.

The Last of Us opening is highly regarded as one of gaming's finest. So I would say it is pretty big that he is confident enough to say something like that.

He's saying it in regards to their work. He's not saying "I think this is one of the best openings ever", he's saying "I think this is the best work they've ever done".

I mean, yeah. I fully expect it to be. Same folks, more experience and better hardware. It's not like they just forgot how to "great game". Gonna have to carve out a good 4 or so hours for my first session since ND makes games that you don't want to stop once you start.

No it wasn't, he said "Since The Last of Us." It's odd because, as pointed out, that's the last game they made lol.

He said this unprompted. He wasn't asked to compare the opening to previous games. So the fact that he said this on his own is noteworthy.

A playable montage of scenes from the previous Uncharted games and new scenes (such as whatever events led up to Sam's arrest), seamlessly flowing into each-other, all created from scratch in Uncharted 4's engine, ending in Nathan Drake waking up at his work desk.

Oh I know. I agree that it is interesting that he jumped immediately to that and I do expect UC4 to have a great opening.

This was coming from how I was playing through the game from the beginning after we hit GM and I was really impressed on how the opening shaped up on all levels. I didn't want to stop playing and I know the game, so I thought that was saying something to me as someone who plays games.

I did clearly say that it was in my opinion - so separate from hypetrain statements and most certainly arguable or fallible. :)
