Is there any way to access the in-game console in Fallout 4 on PS4 to type custom commands? If yes, how can I access it?

What I checked tried to find so far:

Various other fan forums speak about it, but no one actually provide any source for this.

    Wow, people are sensitive... Same question for another game, several upvotes, no downvotes. Fallout 4? 1 upvote, 3 downvotes. All I'm saying regarding the source is that the source is weak (some guy said something anonymously and therefore it's true). I'm not saying the answers are incorrect.

No, the command console isn't available on console versions of the game.

From the wiki page (emphasis mine):

The console is a debugging tool in the PC version of Fallout 4. It is useful for altering content while in-game, but may be used to cheat as well. It cannot be used in the console versions or in Survival mode.

A former employee of Bethesda Softworks has also confirmed this fact in the comments section of this question.

  • Thanks, but some actual source would be better than a wiki page everyone can edit. How can I be sure that what IP wrote is correct? Commented Aug 19, 2016 at 11:52
  • Well ok, I'm only suggesting one source. Perhaps you could do a bit of your own research if mine is so unsatisfactory... Or wait for another answer...

  • Wait, isn't the spirit of this site to make research first and ask questions only when you found none credible? Well, I did research and never found any actual source other than "I couldn't in previous games, I surely can't now". Commented Aug 19, 2016 at 11:56

    @OlivierGrégoire As someone who used to work at Bethsoft, I can confirm that the release versions of their games on consoles do not allow players to access the console.

    @OlivierGrégoire And just as an additional note, when I first started using Arqade, I was an absolute stickler for people sourcing their answers from reliable places. After frequenting it for a while, I've realized that 99% of the time, these game-specific wiki pages are accurate. Mods of the wikis usually take down edits that aren't known to be fact/aren't sourced properly. I've started using them as a primary source for answers myself in most instances. Not saying you have to follow suit, just that you're going to have a very hard time finding answers sourced solely from devs or articles.

When asked

You've mentioned bringing mods to console, but are there any plans whatsoever to bring console to console? (~)

Bethesda representative Pete Hines said

nope. use of the console is not supported or recommended on PC. that kind of thing isn't permitted on consoles anyway

I found this rather obscurely, but it's a better source than what was provided earlier.
