Using Cheats on The Sims 4 Xbox One / PS4

Cheats on The Sims 4 for Xbox One and PS4 are almost exactly the same as the ones on PC. However, the way you use them is a little bit different.

You open up the cheat console by pressing L1 + L2 + R1 + R1 (PS4) / LT + LB + RT + RB (Xbox One).

NOTE: What’s different with cheats for The Sims 4 Console is that almost all of them require the testingcheats true enabled cheat before entering other ones. You will have to enter this cheat or otherwise other cheats won’t function.

After entering that cheat the game will let you know that it’ll disable trophies on your current save game because cheats and achievements don’t go along together.

After you hit OK you are free to enter any type of cheat that’s currently available in The Sims 4 for PC. Yes, motherlode is available.

However, one of the great things about this is that the game lets you use Debug cheats as well – meaning that you can promote your Sims’ careers using the following cheat:

Careers.promote [Career Name]

Also – spawn cheats are working as well! I managed to spawn a fish right next to my Sim.

However – not all cheats revolve around entering text in the cheat console. Enabling the testingcheats true cheat will also unlock some object-specified and Sim-specified cheats. For example you can fill the motives of your entire household or add a Sim to the family (just some of the examples) by holding O + pressing X (PS4) / holding A + pressing B (Xbox One).

  1. You have to press L1+L2+R1+R2 at the same time on live mode then (testingcheats true) first before putting in any other cheats. The person who did this page messed up the cheat.

  2. I haven’t got all of the debug objects shown in the video… such as all the fruit and vegetables for the kitchen. how do I get them? :/

  3. Has anyone else had issues with saving while they are enabled??? Went to go save my game last night and it wouldn’t do anything. No message or anything and I couldn’t get out of the pause menu without pressing the controls button. Went and saved my original game. The one without the cheat and it saved no problem.

    • I noticed that myself has worked fine with the monry cheat i noticed the problem happened after i used the satisfied points cheats just use money is what im gonna do at least til they patch the game

  4. Hey if your having trouble trying to get the cheat console open just press L2 and R2 at the same time then press X or on Xbox press LT and RT then let go and press A then a keyboard will show up and you can type in the cheats

  5. Can anyone tell me how to level up, fitness, gourmet cooking, mixology and video gaming. The stats cheat seems to work for all other than these 4??

  6. Is there a way to enable trophies in new game? I have tried this and it didn’t work even when I turned off cheats and started new game with new save.

  7. Issues with saving xbox one. I will save it, but when I come back to the game another day… i lost days in sim time. Whole chunks of time go missing. If i spend an entire day away from lot, when I come back the progress is lost!

    • Time seems to continue on as long as you are doing something within the same world. I saved my lot (a couple newly pregnant), then went to build mode onto another lot (added a new neighbor and house). When I went back to my original, the wife had already had her baby even though I had not been in live mode since saving that particular lot.

  8. I have two separate saved games and I’m wondering if I use cheats on saved game 2 will it disable achievements on saved game 1 or just saved game 2?

  9. I’ve brought up the box in live mode testing cheats true no effect whatsoever and I ended up just typing testing cheats and “cheats are disabled” came up how do I fix this anyone it’s doing my head in

  10. Although kinda late on this I found that the debug does work and will show the whole list. PS4 controls

    1. Open up the cheat bar then type in bb.showhiddenobjects (all lowercase)
    2. Exit, Then go to sort by room and press R2
    3. Go to content and press debug
    4. Exit and go to sort by category (chair icon)
    6. Before selecting a category you want to press L2 (search bar will pop up)
    5. Don’t type anything in the search bar and just press R2 (it will send you to ALL the debug items)

    I hope you found this useful 🙂

  11. Sims 4 on Xbox the cheat log command prompt doesn’t pop up for me. Anybody else having that issue? How do I fix that? Please help

  12. Best code for getting a lot of money is just MONEY and however much you want. I have found with other codes that have a capitol letter in the code it is best to input the code as written.

  13. Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many choices out
    there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions?
    Thank you!

  14. Roses are red
    Violates are blue
    My sim is dead
    All because of you

    I am just a paintbrush
    With no purpose in this world
    When someone paints a rainbow with me
    I fe l such purpose
    I get that same feeling when I kill sims
    So thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you,
    Your such a G bro

  15. I cannot for the life of me get the fill needs cheat to work, I’m holding down A & pressing B and nothings happening, nothings coming up on the mailbox or my sim. I’ve followed all the instructions and its just not working…can someone please help, its driving me crazy!

  16. How can I use the debug? I’ve pressed on an appliance and then pressed R2 but still all I have under content is unlock and purchased

  17. I have been told that Ro level up a skill you need a word in front of the skill. Appenently it’s on this website but I can’t find the word you have to put in front of the writing skill
