To quote: Did any of the early birds among you stay up the week before last to watch the Tokyo Game Show keynote?

If you did, you'll have seen Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida take to the stage to unveil the new PlayStation App, launching alongside PS4 later this year.
