Will you be buying The Sims 4 on console?

jackjack_kjackjack_k Posts: 8,580 Member
I remember when The Sims 4 was announced, that a lot of people wanted a console version because they preferred playing with a Controller, plus it's easier for those who don't have powerful PC's.

Will you be buying a console variant or stick with the PC? I know some people can't play until they get a console release, but just curious if anyone would actually switch.

It seems 50/50 on Twitter.


For me, I would consider it because I love waking up in Bed and playing Sims in bed :p

    Nope. The kids play the console, I use my PC. Also, we don't have an Xbox.

    If it has a story mode and ends up on PS4 and we get one in the future...maybe? If it doesn't offer anything super new/different from the PC version I really don't see the need to rebuy the game. Plus my roommates are pretty anti-EA so I would have to put up with that as well lol.

    The Sims 3 Pets had one so here's hoping. I think though it's just going to be a generic port :(

    I've been like that for literally years. Haven't owned a TV for about 12 years.

    Most likely not. I've never been a huge fan of playing Sims games on console.

    And also I have a PS4 and not an Xbox :D

    Well, no, since I don't own an Xbox 1.

    If it comes for Nintendo Switch, I will do a bit of research on it, but probably end up buying.

    nope, I do all my gaming on the PC and aren't bothered with any other platforms.

    Saying "not to be rude", then blatently being rude does not excuse rude behavior.

    Probably not. I already own it on PC, and honestly don't use my xB1 very often so it wouldn't be the best investment for myself.

    I don't own an Xbox One console (nor do I plan to), even if that was the case I wouldn't bother with The Sims 4 on console.

    Nope.. I played a few console games when my kids were into it but they've been packed away for awhile now.

  • Sk8rblazeSk8rblaze Posts: 6,944 Member
    Definitely not. I honestly regret buying the game at the premium edition price as it is.
  • KartaiKartai Posts: 1,178 Member
    If it comes on PS4 I might I don't have nintendo switch or Xbox One.

    I might of had the money for nintendo switch if I didn't have buying a new PC in mind.

    Nope, seems kind of pointless to do so (for me), unless they totally changed it up. I played Sims 2, Sims 2 Pets, and Sims Bustin' Out on console, but only because I wasn't allowed to install games on the family PC. :D

    No cuz I don't have a physical Xbox. I do have it in my Windows 10 laptop but I'm already playing the PC game on it.

    The only way i'd buy it is if it released on the Switch, other than that I have no interest.
  • icmnfrshicmnfrsh Posts: 16,073 Member
    No, I prefer the PC versions of vanilla Sims games. Plus I only have a PS4.

    If the console version offers something unique, I might consider it.
