In addition, we get to see the varied reactions of our Sims as they immerse themselves in playtime. So this complete mod package is something you don’t want to miss!
Your Sims Can Now Enjoy the Sony PlayStation 5
The Sony PlayStation 5 has been released last November 2020 and it has taken the world by storm. The gaming console has become a global in-demand product and has been on everybody’s wishlist since its launch. Now, your beloved sims can experience playing this awesome console, too, as mod creator SimmerWellPupper has passionately designed several Sony PlayStation custom content, including a bunch of fantastic video games for the Sims 4.
The Sony PlayStation5 Console plus Accessories
If you’re getting tired of the dull-looking consoles available in The Sims 4, you should definitely download the Sony PS5 Console now. Created by SimmerWellPupper, the said console is fully functional for the game. Available for 1255 simoleons, it comes in the colors of Metallic Silver, Matte black, Jet Black, Glacier White, and Rose Gold.
In terms of incorporating the gaming set in the entertainment area of your Sims’ home, you can equip other accessories that come with the custom content pack, such as the PS5 DualSense Controller (§90), the PS5 DualSense Charger Dock (§50), the PS5 DualSense Charger Dock Full (§230) and the PS5 Retail Box (§40). There is also a decorative PS5 console set (§1255) which works as a toy for kids.
The Realistic PlayStation 5 Controller
To provide another fully functional element of the Sony gaming set, SimmerWellPupper also came up with a usable PS5 Controller. Originally, the Sims 4 has a default black controller that your Sims use whenever they play their video games on the television. However, installing the
PS5 DualSense Controller Override will give them a feel of the real thing! These PlayStation 5 controller overrides come in five colors–black, white, pink, gold, and silver. Make sure to choose only one color to put inside your mods folder to prevent glitches in the game!
The New Games from The Better Console Mod!
To complete the whole feel of the PlayStation gaming experience, SimmerWellPupper also came up with the Better Console Games mod, which includes two sets of PS5 videogames for your dear Sims to experience. The games in this mod are playable even without installing the functional PS5 console introduced earlier, as long as you have The Sims4: City Living pack. It works by overriding the default games available in The Sims 4. The Better Console Mod comes in two variants, the classic games, and the anime games.
The Anime Games Set
If you are a fan of all thing otaku and anime, select this set and play it in the game. Installing this set would let you have the “Force Sims to Play” interaction which we will clarify in the later sections below.
- Final Fantasy VII Remake
- Persona 5 Royal
- Dragon Ball Fighterz
- Granblue Fantasy: Relink
The Classic Games Set
If you are more of the classic gamer type, you can choose this one to include in your game. This set includes special and remastered game editions.
- God of War 4
- Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition
- The Last of Us: Remastered
- Spiderman Remastered
All-New Playing Options
There are several playing options available in the Better Games Console mod.
- Game Tournament – Your sims can join actual competitions to show off their gaming skills! Let them enter the Novice category for 50 simoleons, or if they feel confident, let them join the Professional category for 100 simoleons, which will also help increase their fame. So if you want to build a pro gamer, let them join Professional Game Tournaments!
- Multiplayer Game – The mod allows your sims to convene with other Sims and play a game together through this option. Simply select the sims you want to play with, and let the fun begin!
- Online Game – If your Sims want to play online, you can let them choose this option. It lets them connect to the internet to play their game.
Other Flavorful Gaming Details
If you choose to play with the anime games set, you can oblige your sims to play the games in different ways. You can force them to play the Granblue Fantasy in the Japanese language, force them to play the hard mode in Final Fantasy 7, force them to date all the girls available in Persone 5 Royal, and force them to play Dragon Ball z without breaking the combo! It really is interesting to see your Sims have such challenging times through these options. Also, you can notice the all-new moodlets and flavor text that will appear as a result of the gaming experience of your Sims and as they achieve victories and losses in the process.
How To Download and Install
If you want to realistically simulate the whole PlayStation 5 gaming experience for your Sims, you have to go and download the PS5 console and accessories mod, and the official controller that comes with it. Then, throw in the Better Games mod as well. All these mods and CC would work if you have TS4 City Living installed.
Simply go and download the console mod and accessories, and head to this page for the controller. Finally, download the Better Games mod here. Unzip the zipped files, then place all the package files inside the Mods folder of your Sims. Follow this path: Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Mods. Make sure that the use of mods and custom content is enabled in your game settings. You can then access the items in Build Mode.
As we mentioned earlier, the Better Games mod is available in two selections: anime games and classic games. Keep in mind that for the Better Games mod to work, there should only be one of the two .package files inside the Mods folder at a given time.
