@jasmer947  Yes, you have to buy the packs a second time, unfortunately.  Sims 4 content doesn't transfer between the PC/Mac and console versions.

I thought that might end up being the case. Good to know at least, thank you!

I bought sims4 on my Mac and I have origin.

I bought sims4 on my Mac and I have an origin account and an EA account. Can I transfer the core game to my PS4 without having to repurchase the core game?

@Wolfhounds0042  Nope, sorry, you'll need to buy the game specifically for PS4.  The Sims 4 base game and packs don't transfer between PC/Mac and console.

Can I transfer of packs to console

★★ Newbie

Is it possible to transfer my PC packs to console or do I have to buy them all back? I'm logged into my origin account and it only registered the free stuff and it says that I don't own anything else. Please help.

Re: Can I transfer of packs to console

@THEDOMINATOROO7  Yes, you need to rebuy everything on console.  The PC/Mac and console versions of Sims 4 are considered different games in many ways, including the content you own; your packs don't transfer between the two.

I think you might be able to if you stream from your Xbox to the PC.
