We learned last month that The Sims 4 iscoming to Xbox One and PS4this 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.
