I've been getting this on NBA 2K14 since this evening. 

The game is completely unplayable. I know it's happened with other games for people and it happened to me on Battlefield yesterday but seems to be working okay today.

Still, if games are going to become unplayable, what is the point of owning a games console?

This means an error has occurred with the application.

  1. Close the application, install the latest System Software and game updates and restart the system.
  2. If you have upgraded the Hard Disk Drive ("HDD") in your system, please re-install the original HDD.
  3. If the error occurs again, back up your saved data, and then go to [Settings] > [Initialization] and choose [Initialize PS4].
  4. If the error occurs with every application, or as soon as the application starts, please use our Fix & Replace tool: https://hardware.support.eu.playstation.com/

I have been reporting the problem each time it comes up, i have also checked my software and it saying that it is up to date.

 

I hope we will be receiving re embersment for the inconvenience this is causing s we pay to use the functions!!

 

I do hope this issue is resolved soon as i have to say i turned down the xbox one for the ps4 and so far i am dissappointed!

Superfastzombie thanks for the update but where does that leave us? I have tried all the suggestions by your customer service team with no positive results, subsequently I have a ps4 that I can't really use. £350 is a lot of money for a pretty unattractive ornament.

So if it is now clear that CE-34878-0 simply means 'application crashed' (for unknown reason) there is no chance for a quick, universal fix as there are probably dozens different reasons why this is happening. I'd encourage all users who experience the error to submit the report with as much descripction as possible, that would give Sony a chance to explore all possibilites (as long as they read them)

 

How many times in recent weeks DICE have released patches that were suppposed to prevent BF4 from crashing, and what - the game is still unreliable. I can't see this being sorted out quickly then

I have returned my unplayable PS4 due to error code ce-34878-0 and received a full refund from Game. Then spoke to psn regarding a refund due to the fact that I no longer own a PS console. Their reply was there is nothing wrong with your psn account tough. After many years of Sony loyalty I am very disappointed and have decided to never use Sony products again.

I will give it a few more days. Then I will get rid of it and buy an xbox. This is dumb. This is the 4th console so they should be experienced with these type of errors. I have over $500 worth of stuff just sitting collecting dust.

This is starting to make me angry! Being a person with only one error so far . . .seeing alot of owners even new owners get it is a disgrace! Sony im aware you are aware but seriously its not like you a two man team!

Im also aware getting a patch out takes time but again not a two man team working on this. Surely with such a serious problem you should be focused solely on this!

Can't praise the PS4 enuf even at the time of hardly no games its still going strong and even with this problem . . Just sort it guys otherwise I can see alot of people on here leaving for XbOne!

I get this error every time I play call of duty ghosts, I'll be in the middle of a match online and all the sudden I'm stuck, nothing happens, and there is nothing else to do except hold the ps button and close the application...

Not had this problem with COD ghosts and don't have it with an ID without PS3 history on FIFA14.  But do get it with ID's having any PS3 FIFA13 history.  If I simulate a game, the league record is updated without a problem.

Initialising the console seems to have done it for me. I may have lost some save progress in the process but I'd rather start again if it meant having a functioning console. Will keep this forum updated if any more problems occur.

Full removes the firmware updates also, basically putting you back to proper factory settings.

 

The quick just removes your data, e.g save games, game data, installed apps.

got this error a couple of times. once while playing ghosts which didn't do much damage but the second time on battlefield 4 wiped my campaign save!!!! I tried re downloading from online storage but while sending the error code it automatically updated the save to a blank one!! really disappointed that after months there is no solution. I was told it was a fault with the game only for EA to tell me no it is infact an issue with the ps4 and there is nothing that can be done. great, not starting over. Sony FIX THIS!!!

I'm gonna have my PS4 in a couple of days. regarding this problem i have some questions.

I will be playing AC:Black flag. Is it possible to get the latest software update for that game without having to do the latest system update?

Also. i read in this thread to go back to a previous update (1.5 i think), Is it possible tp pick the upgrade version you want? if so how? I figured if i plug in my PS4 for the first time it will prompt me to get the latest system update..

 

I tried going online to download earlier update files but didnt seem i could, was in a hurry so maybe i missed something.

 

Sorry for all you guys having trouble and thanks for anyone answering me to help.

could there be a firmware choice you could download to a USB stick and do it manualy? Not sure if once they release a new firmware the older get removed. Best bet is chect playstion site for updates?

yeah tried again in less of a rush and you can only download the latest one. They show the older updates history but can't download them.

 

At this point i don't wanna take a chance so might as well just plug in the ps4 register my account cuz i bet you have to and then turn off internet and not install the update. Whats the trade off though.. if there already has been a few updates maybe without them the hardware can run into trouble?

 

Oh well guess we'll see in due time...

Came home from work looking forward to a bit of ghosts on the PS4 and low and behold the ce-34878-0 message. Truly unbelievable stuff from Sony. First the plethora of Blue Light of Death consoles on release  and now this. Without being alarmist or too pre-judgemental this increasngly seems to be a premature release of an unfinished and untested console which would have still beaten the microsoft brick hands down even with a slight delay to ensure it worked properly.

 

I recall when the Sony executives publicly bowed their heads in collective shame as a public apology to their devoted followers when the PSN was hacked - think they ought to get their best bib and tucker prepped for a repeat performance.

The PS4 works fine for most users. It works perfecty for me. Some users will experience issues. This is how technology works. There will always be a small amout of people who experience problems with any piece of technology ever released in the history of the world.

 

The PS4 is not an incomplete, unfinished product. Sony is not that stupid! Think logically. 

 

Sony will work out the kinks that some users are experienceing with the PS4. It takes time. Don't expect miracles.
