Here Is Why Project Nebula Will Not Release On Xbox One: Releasing On PS4 Feels ‘Natural’

A new HOME for PS4 players.

Posted By | On 03rd, Jan. 2015 Under News | Follow This Author @GamingBoltTweet


UK based Kovok studios are working on Project Nebula, a 3D interactive world where players can use custom avatars to socialize and play games together. The game went through crowdfunding via a Kickstarter campaign but unfortunately the campaign got canceled. However the game is still under development via the company’s savings and private investments.

Along with Windows and MAC platforms, the game will be a console exclusive to the PlayStation 4. This has apparently led many fans to term Project Nebula as a spiritual successor to PlayStation Home for the PS4. But the lack of an Xbox One version is rather surprising since Microsoft’s platform does have a solid community of its own.

An executive from Kovok revealed the decision behind going console exclusive with PS4 to GamingBolt.”We were PSHome developers and all our fans are PS3 owners. Releasing the game on PS4 is what feels more natural for us and it’s what our fans wanted.”

Given that Kovok are pushing Project Nebula as the new PlayStation HOME for the PS4, did Sony had any issues when they certified it for the PlayStation 4? Apparently no.

“Project Nebula will only share the social side of PSHome. The world has a solid background, rather than being only a chat room with 3D avatars. For Sony it works like any other game, they are not against it.”

Project Nebula currently does not have a release date but you can get a taste of what to expect from it in the video above.

    At first I though this was just a Sims/PS Home style thing, but then there’s more outside of the house/apartment you customize.

    I’ll keep an eye on this, it looks great!

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      Going to more or less like PS Home, but on much higher level for sure.

      I thought I was going to get into home more than I did, but I have friends and family that can’t get enough of it.

    • HalfBlackCanuck

      PS Home had the same types of games. So this is exactly like a Home-style thing.
      If you liked Home you will likely enjoy this as well. It seriously looks like the same experience with better graphics.

    • GotNews4Ya

      I dunno, some of the extra stuff is way different.. i.e. the horror and suspense and the “TvT” I am guessing that stands for Team vs Team? That means some sort of sport? or .. Paintball or something? Intriguing, and probably will be free to everyone with PS+.. so I am guessing it might be a big hit.. Home was before its time.. and it wanted to do so much more than it could on the PS3.. I think the PS4 is the perfect space for it to accomplish its goals and possibly become a hit. I mean look at Second life.. lol

    Lame excuse. In other words, someone came up with some money

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      I thought Microlo$t had all of it to begin with??

      They do but $on¥ has to put their indies somewhere.

      How old are you?

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      Old enough to not have a fan boy user name.

    • Microsoftjunkie

      Then, I guess you’re still to young to spell correctly too.

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      I’ll take another college course on computers just for you, but maybe I’ll keep a sharper eye out for auto correct since you obviously care so much me an my age.

      HAHAHAHAHAH…….. Go ahead and get online with your bone right now.

    • Microsoftjunkie

      R u ok?!

  • Doggystyle

    Ahhhhhh…..so this is why Microsoft is trying to bring those stupid avatars from the 360 to the Xbox One. It figures.

    • HalfBlackCanuck

      Wasn’t the original home an attempt to out-Avatar the Xbox Avatars?

    • Doggystyle

      No. Actually, home launched before the 360 avatars and was an actual functioning social environment, vs these silly avatars that stand there, out of place on your desktop, looking effeminate.

    • bardock5151

      Yet Avatars were/are more popular. Go figure.

    • GotNews4Ya

      Where are the statistics to prove this?

    • bardock5151

      No statistics, just general observation over the years, and the endless number of different avatar based gamerpics out there. You also had to create an avatar, and it also ended up tied into the achievement system with new gear earned from certain games, which brings even more gamers onboard due to the hit the achievement system was/is. Not to mention Xbox is supposedly updating the thing (I wonder if RARE is heading it still) while home is being shelved….. Sorta, maybe in favour of something similar to Mii’s and Avatars.

    • Fay_Z

      calm down sonys dog, ps home sucked & it was a good decision not releasing their next trash for the xbone. some developers need to stop trying & move on

    • Doggystyle

      I never said I used Home.

    • corvusmd

      Yes, you nailed it. Back in the 360 days they knew this indie game would be published for PS4…so they said then they needed to create Avatars for gamers, then bring them to X1 on day 1 where you can still customize and create gamerpics with…all so they could counter Project nebula.

    • GotNews4Ya

      Playstation Home = Project Nebula almost verbatim, with additional upgrades to graphics and other elements.. So…

    • corvusmd

      …yeah, so?

  • efnet

    I wish devs would stop the pr bullshit and just say the real reason
    ” we wanted to release on the ps4 because they have the larger fanbase (13mil) and we want to caputre as much revenue as we can before we invest in another platform (xbox one )

  • Toni D

    Im not in to home interior designing anyway. #FAB5TheGame

  • Starman

    Who cares .We don’t want gay crap over here anyway …. keep that girly gay crap …

    • Lacerz

      No. Xboxers are hardcore. Now bring on Fantasia and Dance Central.

    • Doggystyle

      LOL.

  • Mike Scarborough

    I hope Microsoft doesn’t waste their time with this trash….. Time would be better spent on real games. Not “second life” or “PS home” I tried it out on PS3 and it was vaguely neat for all of 5 minutes…. If I wanted to go to the mall, i’d go. LOL

  • JerkDaNERD7

    Remove quotes from natural and put it on “feels” …such a subjective opinion.

  • trfe

    Haha! This exactly what home was. So funny. If I was Xbox i’d stay far away from this!

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    Just say its cause xbone sucks and no one cares about it, we already know it anyway just be honest about it.

  • Tuni Peace

    I have seen this developer work through the slush that was ps home. Ps home was ok for social gaming but there was alot to be desired. There is a market for social gaming and i believe that they will succeed. i look forward to what they will deliver on the ps4 and pc.
