Are you getting the PS4 CE-34878-0 error when playing Ghost Of Tsushima? There’s been a surge of cases about this error lately and unfortunately, not many players know what to do exactly about it. If you have this problem, read through this article and see which of the solutions below can help fix it.

What happens when you get CE-34878-0 while playing Ghost Of Tsushima?

Many Ghost Of Tsushima players are reportedly getting CE-34878-0 error. This error code usually follows a game crash. For some people, this error is not game specific or not triggered by a certain game as it can also persist even when the PS4 is not actively loading a game.

What does CE-34878-0 mean?

CE-34878-0 is a general error in a PlayStation 4 console. It’s been observed ever since the first model of the PS4 was released until now so it’s something that Sony is yet to address for good. If you are getting the error CE-34878-0 on your PS4 after Ghost Of Tsushima has crashed, it may be triggered by damaged game files or saved data. However, if the error happens when you’re in the Home screen and not playing any game, some other factors are likely at play.

PS4 error CE-34878-0 may also be caused by bad hardware, like a failing hard drive. 

What are the causes of CE-34878-0 error?

Below are some of the known reasons why a PS4 may encounter error CE-34878-0.

Corrupted game or saved files.

If Ghost Of Tsushima is crashing all the time and the same exact error keeps showing, you may be trying to load a corrupted saved data. This was observed way back when the game was first released in 2020. 

To check if this is the case, try to start the game anew or deleted the save file you’re trying to play right now. If the game works normally and there’s no error, you have a bad saved data issue.

Software glitch.

For some people, error CE-34878-0 may continue to bug them even when they’re simply navigating menus, checking the options button in some settings, or when in the PlayStation Store. If you get CE-34878-0 even when outside the Ghost Of Tsushima game, the cause of the problem may be software-related.

Bad PS4 database.

There were also cases of CE-34878-0 error showing up due to a corrupted PS4 database. Below, we’ll show you how you can refresh your console’s database to check if that’s the case.

Hard disk drive problem.

A few users may experience CE-34878-0 error because their hard disk drive is old and is failing. This usually occurs for those who are still using the original PS4 model. If your PS4 is still using its original hard drive and you noticed that the system’s performance has slowed down significantly, including when playing Ghost Of Tsushima, it’s probably time that you replace the hard drive.

How to fix Ghost Of Tsushima CE-34878-0 error?

Fixing error CE-34878-0 in a PS4 is not straightforward but it’s not that hard either. Most of the time, the reason for it is a software bug so keeping the everything up-to-date may be a good solution. 

These are the possible solutions that you can try to see if you can fix CE-34878-0 error permanently.

Reboot the PS4.

Let’s start with the basic system refresh. Simply turn the PS4 off and unplug it from the power source for 30 seconds. Afterwards, start it back up and check for the problem.

Restarting your PS4 this way also clears the system cache, which can sometimes fix minor performance bugs.

Keep the system software and games updated

Installing updates should be done whether or not you’re experiencing a problem. If you mainly use your PS4 to play offline games, make sure that you connect it to the internet from time to time in order to install the latest system software and game updates.

Rebuild the PS4 Database.

As mentioned above, error code CE-34878-0 may also be caused by a broken file organization or database. To ensure that the system’s database is in top shape, follow this article on how to rebuild it: How to rebuild PS4 Database.

Delete old saved files.

If you can’t seem to proceed with the game after reloading a saved file, consider deleting that particular data or try using another saved point instead.

Reinstall Ghost Of Tsushima.

If the game continues to crash, you can start Ghost Of Tsushima all over again by deleting and reinstalling it. This has been the early and only effective solution for many people when the game was released in 2020. I have not personally encountered this error on my own Ghost Of Tsushima game in my PS4 so there’s no guarantee that it may help.

Factory reset your PS4.

Some people may encounter error CE-34878-0 even when not in a game. If this is your case and your PS4 is also having a hard time loading applications or other games, you may have to do a drastic solution, which is to factory reset your console (Initialize PS4 option in Safe Mode).

Replace the hard drive.

If wiping your PS4 with a factory reset did not fix the error code at all, you may have an issue with the hard drive. Mechanical hard disk drives may fail after reaching certain periods. Some may fail prematurely due to factory defect too.

Replacing the hard drive may not be easy for an average user so if you cannot manage it on your own, let a professional handle the replacement for you. 

If your PS4 is still in warranty, contact Sony instead or visit the store where you bought the console from for a replacement.
