IGN for PlayStation, our new app for PS4, is available today, and I'm pleased to tell you that you can download it for yourself - free of charge - when PlayStation Store updates. The app is currently exclusive to PS4, and will come to PS3 and PS Vita next year.

But more importantly, our PS4 app will give you direct access to all of IGN's video content, letting you create custom playlists, while finding and consuming the exact content you're seeking.
