Information:

The console version of Sims 4 is mostly the same gameplay wise as it is on PC/Mac, with exception to the controls, See controls here.

EA/Maxis wanted it to be this way so no matter what you're playing on the gameplay mechanics are similar. SimGuruDuke mentioned this some time ago.

However, there may be a few other little differences, there isn't as many options in Game Options, there is no mod or custom content support. Some cheats aren't available.

From time to time, they add a few community creations to player's My Library tab.

Players can have multiple families per save game, however there are only 5 save game slots.

Players can still use Carl's guide to get general help and information on the game.

Sony and Microsoft aren't allowing mods and custom content on console except for very limited exceptions (Fallout 4 and Skyrim)

If you've purchased and/or registered Sims 4 and it's packs via your PS4/XBox One account, you shouldn't need to worry about them being deleted or having to re-purchase them. When you log into your account, the game and it's packs should be available.

Plans to port over all the packs (DLC) from pc to console.
