NA Playstation Store Update: September 29th, 2015

By Rebecca Smith,
Not only are we bringing you the new content this week, we're also looking for opinions. Due to attending EGX, last week's roundup contained a bare bones list of just the newly released titles. This week, I've added back the DLC that adds new trophies to a game and new demos/betas. However, I've left off the DLC that doesn't add new trophies. Is this something that you wish to see still, or do you want us to stick to the content that only involves new trophies? If the latter is the case, do you still want to see the demos and betas? As usual, all opinions are welcome in the thread below.
