The cheat console can be opened by pressing all 4 shoulder buttons at once (L1 + L2 + R1 + R2). It can be accessed at any time in any part of your game.
Every basic cheat that you’ve been using in the PC version is available on the Console version as well. Sadly I haven’t tried the advanced cheats such as stats.set_skill_level and careers.promote so I don’t know if they’re functional in the console version or not.
Options & Settings
You can access the options by pressing the “options” button on your controller.
Unlike with the PC version you won’t be able to change the settings of your graphics – as they’re all turned up to Ultra settings.
When it comes to other options you have all the basic audio options, music section where you can listen to all pre-installed Simlish music, camera where you can invert the camera movements and “other”, which is basically just allowing EA to collect your gameplay data for analytics and enabling / disabling / resetting the tutorial.
The Sims 4 for Consoles is still that same game you’ve experienced on your PC or seen in the trailers and other sources on the internet without that extra flavor of community generated content.
The Sims 4 Console will also have all the big DLC titles that you had on PC. We’re also going to talk about that in the near future.
There are still a few things that need to be polished regarding the performance but considering we managed to get our hands on a game that’s coming out in 2 months the game is pretty much smooth in my opinion.
If you prefer playing video games on your console and you don’t mind the lack of mods and community creations then The Sims 4 Console is the best installment in the franchise for you.
