According to a gaming industry analyst, Sony has told its first-party studios to shift their focus to PlayStation 5 titles, with many of them already tinkering with the company's brand new dev kits. Starting in March 2019, only PlayStation 4 games will be up for grabs if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber. Divekick is promoted as "the world's first two-button fighting game".

In addition, Sony has confirmed they're expanding the cloud storage of PS Plus members from 10GB to 100GB. Seagate said games can take up 40GB each and - as any fan will know - just a few can max out PS4 disk storage.

The two big free titles in February through PlayStation Plus are going to be For Honor and Hitman: The Complete First Season.

"This won't affect any games you've already downloaded, or will download, prior to March 8, 2019", Sony explained at the time.

The next model - allegedly codenamed "Erebus" - is rumoured to being backwards-compatible, and PlayStation boss John Kodera hinted that the console may arrive in 2021. For PlayStation Plus members, every month new titles become available for players to enjoy for free.

That is obviously a massive increase, but it's also worth noting that Sony's cloud storage services still seem to lag behind Microsoft's. Divekick is also cross-compatible with PS Vita. It's got a pretty good combat mechanic, and if you like the game enough, you can grind to unlock characters that have been introduced via its season pass.
