IGN for PlayStation App Out Today on PS4

IGN App for PS4

Greetings once again, PlayStation.Blog! My name’s Colin, IGN’s Senior Editor. You may have seen me skulking around IGN PlayStation and making terrible predictions on Podcast Beyond, but today, I’m not here to make any pizza bets with you. No, I’m here to tell you about something exciting we’ve cooked up for PS4 owners.

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.

How does this benefit you, exactly? IGN’s PS4 app will make you more popular with your friends, give you more energy, and even make the food you eat taste better (that’s not true). 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.

What’s truly cool about the app, however, is how granular you can get with it. You can rapidly come in and out of full-screen view, minimize a video and let it run in the corner while you keep on browsing, and skip unwanted content with a press of R1. Whether you’re looking for a preview, a review, some help with a game, or just a totally inane conversation about nothing at all, IGN’s PS4 app is here to make your gaming life better.

So head over to PlayStation Store to download the app, and let me know what you think.

‘Til next time, my friends. Beyond!

The IGN App for PS4 can be found in the TV & Video section of PS4′s home screen, or in the App section of PlayStation Store.

    I don’t believe it supports PlayStation Camera, but perhaps our engineers will include that in a future update.

IGN? Really? I’ve yet to see one review from them that was any good, hell some looked like the reviewer didn’t even play the game……. Too bad X-Play got cancelled…..

This is great, because we really need a bunch of paid off biased game reviews… Yeah, this is waaaaaaaaay better than HBO GO!

How about releasing some GAMES for this $450 bucket I have sitting in my living room.

I’m still waiting for that YouTube app, sad that Vita could play all YouTube videos from it’s browser but ps4 only plays afew. But good stuff on the IGN app, hopefully you can check out written stories too

    The app only supports video right now; I’m not sure what the plan is for accessing written content.

Firstly BEYOND!

Secondly, to the people complaining about applications need for X and Y. Go complain to them. IGN built this app, its not sony’s problem.

@Teflon02 go to http://www.youtube.com/TV from ps4 browser, looks and works just like PS3. I use it everyday.

    I suspect wiki-centric game help videos will be accessible, yes. Written content will have to be used on a browser.

@Jayrabbit that’s what the browser is for. Best HTML5 browser on a console.

Hey Colin, true story:

I also submitted an app for PS4, but Sony turned me down because it ran natively at 720p. They kindly suggested I submit my app for the Xbox One instead.

Alot of people wonder why the ps3 is behind in apps and other updates that the xbox has its because its a JAPANESE COMPANY – The USA if going to support its system better from gaming to everything else like oil and weapons of mass destruction..lol but yeah in order to get the approval of the app company and be able to update it..will always take longer than its homeland step brother..sad but true.
