The Sims 4 Will Support Cheats on Console, but There’s a Catch
We learned last month that The Sims 4 is coming to Xbox One and PS4 this November with all the same features offered on the PC version.
That includes cheats, according to Maxis senior producer Michael Duke. In response to a fan question on Twitter, Duke revealed that cheat codes will be supported on the console version of The Sims 4 at launch, but there’s a bit of a catch. Using cheats will disable Trophies and Achievements.
The free holiday pack will be in console game at launch. We will also support cheats but many cheats will disable trophy/achievements. https://t.co/SMLeUtN90K

I’m going to assume this is a Microsoft/Sony security-type issue more than a Maxis decision to willingly disable Trophy/Achievement support. In any case, I think it’s a fair trade off as I’m sure most of us prefer the ability to enter cheats.
