@batgirlraver1991 Unfortunately packs and games are platform specific, so they will not transfer. If you have reason to believe you have a case for gettin a refund on any of them you are certainly welcome to contact support. They can be reached at this link: https://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/

That's the sucky part of using both console and PC is that the games are platform specific. Especially the Sims game and packs. Hopefully you'll get a refund! Best of luck. Fingers crossed

purchased side packs on pc, can i transfer purchases to my linked ps4 account

★★ Newbie

i bought sims 4 on pc and bought all but 4 of the side packs. I linked my EA account with my ps4, got the game on ps4, but now I cant transfer and use my side packs. Fortnite, Rainbow Six, even Minecraft lets you now transfer purchases and game data, why wont EA? I'm not buying all the side packs again just to play on the PS4, I rather hook up my computer and figure out some other way to play it on the TV then spend $100's of dollars just to play on the PS4.

 

Can someone explain why they won't allow this when other gaming companies do?

 

(Also I know you guys have the money for it if that's your issue. You just gave David Dobrik a new car to promote your game and even flown them out on a private jet and lent them more expensive cars to promote your games. This really seems unfair that you'll spend the money for that, but not for us to get the full experience in our games.)

Re: Why don't my expansion packs transfer between platforms

@Captain-smitty23  I've merged your post with a master thread on this same issue, in the Sims 4 general discussion forum.

 

The Windows/macOS version of the game is considered separate from each console version, so no, you won't be able to transfer your packs from PC to console.  This is common  in games that run on multiple platforms, exceptions notwithstanding.  In this case, Sony undoubtedly wants its share of the proceeds from the sale of any PS4-enabled packs, and EA isn't going to pay Sony for your right to play on your console.

 

As for playing on the TV, find yourself an HDMI cable and plug the TV in like a monitor.  Most models support HDMI, as do most graphics cards.

Re: Why don't my expansion packs transfer between platforms

@Chynna_jaide  I've merged your post with the master thread on this issue.  No, there's no way to transfer the PC/Mac version of the game to either console, or vice versa.  If you want to play on your PS4, you'll need to buy your content again.

Sims 4 dlc transfer

★★★★ Newbie

Hello, if I bought a dlc on orgin for the sims 4 would I be able to use that on my ps4 sims? Or will I have to buy the dlc all over again for ps4?

Re: Sims 4 dlc transfer

@Slomey_l   Unfortunately, the packs you bought wouldn't transfer from PC/Mac to console, or vice versa.  Even though the game plays essentially the same on all platforms, the two versions are considered distinct games in many ways, including what content you own.

@tamezcua83 Unfortunately the console Sims 4 game and packs are not interchangeable with PC/Mac games and packs.
