The Sims 4 Is Officially Coming to Console This November

The appearance of The Sims 4 on the Microsoft Store earlier this week wasn’t a clerical error; the game will be making its way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 17.

“Right now, the team is currently preparing for launch (looking for bugs, and making little improvements that will ensure this is the best Sims game EVER on console),” wrote senior producer Michael Duke on the PlayStation Blog. “It is certainly no small task to try and bring a PC game over, but we are doing a lot of iteration and testing to make sure we meet your high standards and deliver an experience we will all enjoy for years to come.”

Duke also added that the “current generation of hardware has enabled [them] to translate code” straight to console, without any major changes required. “… It is no longer about which platform has the superior version, but where you like to play,” he went on to say.

As Polygon points out, the last game in the franchise to hit console was 2010’s The Sims 3. The game released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii.

Neat. I know a lot of people will be happy, and younger audiences will be able to play. Wonder if it will come with any packs or if you will have to download them separately.

I wonder if the expansion packs will be in the game or if they will be added as DLC over time.

Played quite a bit of original sims and Sims 2 on pc before they got into all the town stuff. Might give it a go, as a relaxing type game. - but there won't be a shortage of games out then, as well as xbox one x.
