NA Playstation Store Update: June 23rd, 2015

By Rebecca Smith,
There is no Playstation Vita content this week.

Playstation 4

There's a deluge of Playstation 4 content: three retail releases, a free-to-play MMO, five smaller digital releases and four new bundles. Add to that a major expansion for Final Fantasy XIV and a new episode of Tales from the Borderlands and there is plenty from which to choose. Of course, if none of it appeals to you, there's a demo for one of KOEI's upcoming fighters and the chance to pre-order three upcoming titles.
