The Sims 4 is great, and it's even better with cheats. But if you're playing The Sims 4 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you might need some help accessing the cheat menu. Here's how you do it.
To access The Sims 4 cheat menu on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, you'll need to hold down all four shoulder buttons at once. For the PlayStation 4, that's L1, R1, L2 and R2 — and for the Xbox One, that's LB, RB, RT and LT. Be warned though — cheating on console will remove all in-game achievements and trophies.
If you're successful, a pop-up window will appear, and you're free to cheat to your heart's content.
