3 reasons why The Sims 4 on Console is currently better than The Sims 4 on PC

Editor’s note: this article isn’t all that serious. However, there is some truth tea.

You’ve probably noticed that The Sims 4 for PC / Mac is going through a rough patch at the moment (no tea no shade). Screenshots which are a crucial part of storytelling have been blurry for a few days now ever since The Gallery update and The Gallery itself, although it looks great, crashes on a daily basis. I actually spent plenty of hours these last few days playing The Sims 4 on Console with all of the packs currently available and I gotta say – I’m enjoying the game a lot more, and here’s why:

1) The screenshots are c  r  i  s  p

Nothing better than taking a screenshot that isn’t blurry. Sure, The Sims 4 Console relies on taking screenshots using your controller but still the result of those screenshots that you take on console are perfectly clear.

The Sims 4 PC screenshots make me want to see an eye doctor.

2) No Gallery – No problem!

The Sims 4 Console players are at ease considering they’ve been met with expectations that the game won’t have The Gallery feature (at the launch of TS4 Console). Sure, the developers have said a few times that they’re working on implementing The Gallery on Console but as of right now Console players have no worries or struggles when opening up The Gallery only to find out that The Gallery is down. Seriously though, The Gallery on PC went down at the same time for the last 3 days and it’s starting to get annoying.

Console players are currently at their own mercy of creating their own Sims and Houses which is actually pretty fun. I’ve built a house last night on Console (which isn’t something I usually do) and thanks to The Gallery not currently being a thing for Console I’ve discovered all the wonderful ups (and downs) of building your own house.

3) The ability to appreciate previous packs all over again

You probably know already that The Sims 4 Console doesn’t have all the packs from PC currently available. However, the game is slowly getting there. With 3 Expansion Packs, 3 Game Packs and 8 Stuff Packs I’ve gotten an opportunity to appreciate all the features and gameplay we got with Cats & Dogs, Parenthood and so on without being distracted by features from packs that are currently trending.

Honestly, all I’ve ever done lately on PC ever since The Sims 4 Seasons Expansion Pack came out was create holidays and take screenshots of my neighborhoods covered in snow. It’s nice to go back to the good old days when everything seemed like a hint towards Seasons.

  • “Truth tea”. Come on now.

    Jovan, I supported you and even talked to you personally about how I appreciated that this website wasn’t toxic and was very refreshing. I told you how I liked how you didn’t get into drama and were very kind.
    Now, you keep making clickbait articles and “lol tea” articles.

    Even a few months ago, when you kept changing the name to the twitter where the “customer support confirming seasons” articles and even nastily used a twitter name from a Simmer that’s handicapped and hadn’t tweeted since 2015.
    Or weeks ago with the person that said they were going to report Maxis for all their bugs. Then, a day later, the person deleted their tweets and confirmed they had a bipolar attack and didn’t know or understand what they had done. You kept that article up, even after the person removed themselves from Twitter completely.

    These aren’t okay, especially the changing of twitter names of articles.
    Please be better than this.

  • The three reasons why the Console version is “currently better” than the PC version:

    1) The PC version has a bug that the Console version doesn’t
    2) The Console version is missing a major feature, so players don’t have to worry about it not working from time to time! Whew!
    3) The Console version is missing DLC, allowing players to appreciate what it DOES have while not being “distracted” by what it DOESN’T have (see #2)

    OMG, you guys, I just had the best idea! Only install the packs on your PC that are on Console, use Win + Prt Sc to take screenshots instead of the in-game camera, and stay offline to disable the Gallery, and you have the ULTIMATE SIMS EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!

  • its about time they are adding laundry day i’ve been waiting for a long time like a good loyal simmer but i hope they don’t release seasons next year for console lol makes me want to go out and get it for the computer but i hate using my mouse now that its on console

  • My “pro” for console play would be not needing a high powered laptop or computer to make the Sims run smoothly. Thats the only “Win” i see even with no CC and all the packs and stuff the sims is horrible on my laptop and im not willing to invest right now so i am currently waiting on Seasons for the console and ill be satisfied.
