Meh, forgot that SE has the IP. Well, Amy Henning was a big part of those games and shes part of ND (at least I think so), so maybe she has some weight to throw around. Its just a dream anyway, I know it will never happen, just like a FF7 remake.
Ignoring that Sony own them and that one of the companies core technology teams is there, I'm not really sure why the dev kits have anything to do with that. Naughty Dog is one of their biggest team that pump out some of Sonys biggest and well known games, why wouldn't they be giving them a ton of dev kits seeing as they at this point should be full on into PS4 development.
