We're soon to come with some guides on the PS3/Xbox versions and their differences relative to the PC version. It may be hard to identify all trophies any quickly though just because it is so many of them and no official list I've found yet. However, I did give one un-verified list I took from a non-official forum a while back in this thread.

If you have any questions about earning them or any other concerns which are not brought up in the guide, you are welcome and encouraged to post in the forum console section or another appropriate section. :)

It will with most of the general gameplay, but it won't have any advice for the Karma powers, Challenges, or Trophies/Achievements as they don't exist in the PC version. There is a console version guide written by the same author that covers everything for the PS3/Xbox 360 and Wii versions.

If you've activated the cheat mode, you won't receive any trophies for that save file. You will need to start a new game to receive any more trophies. You can save the game at the very beginning before you create or place any Sims. I use that to quickly start new games for testing various things including the cheats.

The guide for the console version lists all of the trophies. It's a long list, so I won't repeat it here. It's just a little over two full pages long in the guide (51 trophies total). The Trophy (PS3) and Achievement (Xbox 360) lists are the same.

Most of the trophies are pretty self-explanatory. If you look at the Trophy list on the PS3 (there are no hidden trophies), the descriptions tell you what you need to know. For example, the Trophy Fit for a King has the description Prepare a Perfect Meal. So, just have your Sim with a fairly high Cooking skill prepare a meal and chances are you'll gain the Trophy with little problem.

Some trophies, such as Master Architect and True Wealth will take a while to achieve. Master Architect requires you to build a house worth $350,000 or more in value on a large lot, while True Wealth requires you to gain a total of 250,000 Lifetime Happiness Points on a single Sim. Another long trophy is Miracle Worker which requires you to grant a total of 1,000 wishes.

Hmm, sorry if you can't say for sure, but do you know that for a fact, that there are no hidden trophies?
I've wondered about that for a while in case we make a list on the guide later. Do you have a reference to that or just that you on a basis of big experience of the game have not encountered a hidden one? I myself have not found a hidden one yet as well.

Hi, Swede.

All of the trophies are listed in the XMB of the PS3 with full names and details. Games that have hidden trophies will still list the trophy in the Trophy menu, but will say Hidden Trophy for the name and no color in the trophy icon. All the trophies can be found in the Prima guide. The Xbox 360 achievements are in a separate list, but are essentially the same as the PS3 trophies.

Well, it should be pretty straight-forward actually. It's just to keep your sims productive and happy long enough to rise in their careers. Unless it's the week-end, my sims always spend the evening practising their skills to rise in the careers. When you get that into routine, the rest becomes pretty clear.

I find the Military career the easiest to go up levels. No real hard requirements for the first couple of levels. By level four, you begin working only three days a week instead of four. Having the Handy and Athletic traits will help a lot as both the Handiness and Athletic skills are needed for promotions. Having a decent relationship with the boss is required as well.

To start, send your Sim to the Military Base to join the Military Career. If you have enough money, take the Handiness class at the base as well. Then, send your Sim to the Gym to learn Athletic by working out on one of the machines. The Gym also has shower and cooking facilities, so you can grab a meal or take care of Hygiene needs. Try to get a skill point in each on the first day, though you may not be able to get the Athletic point if your Sim is too tired.

In the morning, try to wake you Sim about 3 hours before their job starts (about 4 am for Military Sims). Send them immediately to the toilet and then the shower (baths take longer). Queue up a quick meal while you're at it. If your Sim has a partner, send the partner to cook a meal while your main Sim is in the shower. Do this every work morning.

Over time, you'll get into the habit of doing this without too many errors, but in the beginning it may be difficult to time your sleep properly. Start fulfilling small Wishes to build up Lifetime Happiness Points and (more importantly) Karma points. At 40 Karma points, you can activate Super Satisfy, which will max out all of your Sim's Needs. If your Sim has a partner, the partner can help build Karma points while your main Sim is at work.

That should get you started. As long as you keep your Mood and Skills up when you're working, you should reach level 5 without too many problems. :)

Not at the same time. You must quit one job in order to take a new job.

There is not so much any 'wrong' career in the game. If you want an athletic career other than military, the criminal branches works too.

Unless you're wanting to have a home-maker (which many power-gamers around here seems to have) you probably want a job for each sim, if anything with similar requirements at least as you won't have to buy training machines for all skills. Then stick with that job; even when you've reached the highest level (unless it contradicts your lifetime wish or something :)), your sim can get raises and bonuses until the day he/she dies.

If you want to know the requirements, please refer to this page and the related subtopics. Some careers (the ones from expansion packs) aren't available to the console.
