Battlefield 4 For PS4 Suffering Crashing Issues

Yesterday, after having some stability issues coinciding with the launch of the Playstation 4, Electronic Arts posted -- and removed -- a message blaming Sony's firmware update for stability issues on the console. Now, a day later, EA is taking some heat for a crashing problem that is plaguing the PS4 version of Battlefield 4 that seems to have nothing to do with the firmware update.

According to many users on the Battlefield 4 forums, players have been getting kicked out of games, and are getting shown error code CE-34878-0. Upon relaunch of the game, the game will load fine at first before telling you, the first time after receiving the initial error, that your save file has been corrupted and must be deleted... (PS4)

BF4 is an unoptimized POS game just look at on PC,PS3 and 360.
Enemy  +   812d ago
It actually is. Not sure why you got a disagree. The game is a completely broken mess even on PC. Anyone looking forward to buying it should wait it out a bit longer.

Obviously they wanted to beat Infinity Ward COD to the store. But this is a norm, EA got to be the worse 3rd party company with deep pockets! Now, all we gonna get is a bunch of patches that eventually gonna full up our HDD......bastards

Most of the bugs and crashes are server based. The game itself is very well optimized.
IHassounah  +   812d ago
I have to agree with you both , even CoD is bad , the only good games I saw for now are KZ:SF and DR3 (yes I'm buying both consoles)
Lwhit6  +   812d ago
@laMs12 no. The whole game is broken. Servers don't run the single player which is where the floor of one level glitched out causing me to fall and die multiple times. Oh well its not like it matters because I just had to redo the campaign three times over because the game didn't save. It's a massive, fumbling, broken P.O.S. there's no way around that fact.
static5245  +   812d ago
While I do admit that I love the BF series and I do enjoy BF4 but I definitely don't play it as much as I normally would because of all the bugs.

I don't blame DICE for this at all. They have proven themselves at releasing awesome FPS. But as soon as EA got their hooks into them things have gone down hill. I guarantee DICE wanted more time to work on the game, but here comes EA and says to bad it needs to be released on this date broken or not.

I'm actually happy Watch Dogs got pushed back. There's no shame in needing a little more time to make sure your game his going to be as good as it can be for release

Even with PC being the main platform BF4 is being designed still had reports of the game crashing. The game probably got rushed to stay competitive with Ghosts in sales. It's something a patch could fix but EA needs to give DICE more time to optimize their game next time. It gives them a bad view which results in less sales for the next game in this amazing franchise.

YES! I've had to restart my campaign THREE times and I can't play it for more than hour without crashing AT LEAST 3 times
frostypants  +   812d ago
People actually play the campaign? It's Battlefield...playing the single player campaign is sacrilege. Its very presence is just to appease people uncomfortable with buying an online-only game.

Bad review for exclusive? Reviewer must be biased, a noon or doesn't understand the game.
Technical difficulty with PS version of game? Lazy devs!

That is as true as it gets, and yours and my disagree counts will verify that.
sourav93  +   812d ago
Yet you will stay blind to the fact that some of those reason's are actually valid. Hypocrite much? With BF4, I can no longer progress on SP because the game keeps crashing on the beginning of mission 7, and this is on PC. The game is completely broken.
Mr-Dude  +   812d ago
And the same thing doesn't happen with other systems? Like for example the Xbox One or PC?

I am very curious for the 21 and the 22nd, for the reviews of the X1, and what the Xbox fans are going to say when things aren't going the way they want or hope. And the youtube vids appear online of "broken" systems etc... because they will, it's launch hardware and software!

Consoles suffering hardware issues? Foxconn had saboteurs in there to destroy Sony's launch because China hates Japan.

Although I cant find this story on any credible site nor is a picture of an open PS4 prove much.
KwietStorm  +   811d ago
I guess you haven't played the game then,and haven't played every other PS4 game that doesn't crash.
ylwzx3  +   812d ago
Agree. I have BF4 on the PC and it really is a optimized POS at the moment.
GirlOnFire  +   812d ago
I have an perfectly fine experience with battlefield 4. It was Ghost that was the problem with error code for me. It works today and it said I had corrupt data then worked fine. It was most likely an update problem because I started Ghost without the update first. ^~^
Nocando  +   812d ago
I have to agree, playing bf4 today and it crashed 3 times, not to mention this annoying glitch where the screen looks like its going into 3d mode and back. Fun game when it works, but I expect far better for the $70 "digital deluxe" premium.

And yet everyone was jumping for joy and dubsteppin not too long ago on N4G about dat 1080p for PS4.

Kind of hard to enjoy that 1080 when your game keeps crashing eh?

Another example of jumping the gun and celebrating before actually getting your hands on the game. And also another example of how resolution means nothing if your game is either crap or can't even work.

Both CoD and BF4 were rushed out to meet both new consoles release date. Instead they could have held these versions back and tweaked them more and released them later maybe even during Xmas time to make sure the game was working correctly.
KwietStorm  +   811d ago
Yes it's hard to enjoy it when it's crashing. What's your point?

I got that same screen on Killzone Shadow Fall one time so far... I'm about to finish the campaign now.

trancefreak  +   811d ago
I have the PC version because I couldn't wait to play BF4 but I had already ordered the PS4 version as well. I wanted to play with a ton of my co workers whom just received PS4's. Looks like that isn't happening with this game

I have not opened the BF4 PS4 version as of yet and its being returned. I am having to much fun playing Shadowfall so I will use the credit to get a compatible gaming headset.
Skizelli  +   811d ago
Anyone who says BF4 is optimized is full of crap. The game is buggy in general, no matter what platform it's on. I've been playing it on PS3. The game played fine the first day or so, but then I started experiencing game freezes. They weren't random, however. I noticed it only happened when spawning on a squad member, but not when I was alone or the Commander. After browsing some forums and then Reddit, I found out the game's field perks are bugged and I have to use the Defensive perk until they fix the rest. Sure enough, the problem was solved and I haven't froze since.

Battlefield is fun and all, but it's been a buggy, clunky franchise ever since BF1942.
starchild  +   811d ago
I don't know what you are talking about. I haven't had any problems with the PC version. It looks amazing and runs extremely well.

I have an HD 7950 and i5 2500k and I can tell you Battlefield 4 looks at least as good as Crysis 3 (probably better) and runs a hell of a lot better. I haven't had any real issue to speak of. I think they did a pretty good job optimizing it for the PC. I can't imagine how good it is going to run after the Mantle API is made available.

Like I said, the game ran fine for me for a day or so, even when I chose different field perks. Maybe you're one of the lucky ones, but the problems DO exist on the PC version as well.

Name a Battlefield game that has had a smooth launch.

You can't.

It's just the way it goes with some series. Most multiplayer games have horrible launch-period issues. They all get ironed out in the first couple patches, but the first week of a game's long life cycle is never a good metric for how good the game actually is.

unfortunately the truth is that it's not up to the devs.

it's up to the publishers, in this case EA. ea hold the $$$$ here. EA want it out before Cod, they don't care if it works or not.

this don't have nothing to do with the ps4 or it's power.

There's too many issues that are there to even have thought of releasing it with pride of putting DICE on it. The launch of BF4 on PC has been atrocious and had endless crashes and can only assume that the consoles are getting screwed too. There's been a lot of things that shouldn't have been passed through QA but was.
svoulis  +   811d ago
I agree, but I feel like they should've waited then. I can't even play on PC without random crashes and horrible FPS I have 2x 680's. Then I get it for PS3 and PS4..(cause of the digital deal)

and it works alright on PS4 (did the whole campaign with only 2 crashes) but online crashed a few times already.
pandehz  +   812d ago
Its the first Battlefield I havent bought yet. The beta was so horrid compared to BF3 that I decided to skip this completely. Crashing is one thing, the beta was almost unplayable. Also the final version from what I hear is not that different.

I have had corruption errors four times on my 36o. I noticed it happens when the game either locked up during loading, or I turned it off during loading. To fix it I simply copy my save file into the cloud. When it happens again, I just copy the save file again but from the cloud to the hard drive.

I got Assassins Creed 4 as my first title on PS4. LOVE IT, and I wasn't a fan of other AC games, but the pirate theme is awesome. I'll be getting BF4 and CoD on X1 on Friday.

Side note which may help some playing BF on PS4-It takes a bit to install the game, which I read on here or another site. AC was being buggy and corrupt for me at first because I was getting to areas not yet installed. Try leaving the game on for a bit and let it install. It MAY help, which I did for AC4 and it works flawless now. I'm sure the other issues will be fixed with a patch. Good luck guys

MorePowerOfGreen  +   812d ago
I've never seen a error code for a simple crash or freeze due to un-optimized code. Is this a PS4 feature? or a more serious system software/hardware notification? On current gen consoles those error codes mean something more serious with console software or hardware issues.

I was just hoping it was BF4 as it is a mess on 360 as well but the console does not notify you with console code errors. Maybe it's just the game(s) and next gen systems handle these things differently. I was going to get NBA 2K for XB1.

When the ps4 crashes it takes you to a error code screen that lets you notify sony of the issue. If the ps4 itself completely crashes it loads a safe mode disc checker and I have been a day one adopter since the N64 and I can say this has been the worst experience on day one so far for me. I had better luck once I turned of being online and reinstalled my 6 games.

Dee_Cazo  +   811d ago
Thank god i'm not the only one. DICE made BFBC2 fantastic and inadvertently became Call of Duty's competitor.

Unfortunately they were already working on BF3 that looked gorgeous but played a lot different and less fun for me than Bad Company.

So now as they are locked in this rivalry EA won't want to ruin brand recognition and will keep pushing out regular Battlefield titles so they dont confuse consumers.

I played so much BFBC2 and loved the Vietnam expansion. Disappointing that we get these Call of Duty DLC/changes in Battlefield making it worse.

Yeah, Conquest is pretty pointless, atm, unless I'm doing something wrong.. But I'm also experiencing a bunch of other issues, about 90% of the time I don't get to finish a match because I get the error code from this article, and when I decided to go give the single player a spin, that ends with a corrupted save file, not a good look. It's a great game, I would really enjoy being able to actually play it.

If you start a game and create a squad you can invite your friends, they automatically join your squad even if you make it private, otherwise you can flick between the squads in the team setup option by pressing start, it's all a bit backwards.

LMFAO!!! Oh My! Look Who's CRASHING NOW!

In your FACE! But Only to those Jerk of a FANBOYS who ridiculed the PC version of BF4 for Crashing.

Yes I'm acting Childish just like them because some people are just too stupid to be an Adult too so I gotta stoop to their LOW IGNORANT LEVEL from time to time.

Fanboy --"BF4 PC crashing then you should throw it away and go buy the SUPERIOR version on the PS4"

Sure why not so I can loose my progress and CRASH even MORE on a PS4, OK will do.

*A Game as Big as BF4 that got ported to 5 platforms is bound to have problems, I understand this more than anyone but DO NOT run around acting like one platform is NOT gonna suffer issues because they all will*

This Post was ONLY intended for the Silly Fanboys and their ignorant comments. I have BF4 PC and have ONLY suffered ONE crash! I see some bugs and glitches still but that DOES NOT detract from the fact that BF4 is AWESOME!

If you do not OWN BF4 but wanna whine and CRY about bugs/glitches then FINE go play COD:G and let us DIE HARD BF fans enjoy OUR game without YOU! DICE is still the BEST, The Frostbite 3 is still the Best Engine out.

This is why I hate new Gen consoles because DICE had to make BF4 for 5 platforms and did not have enough time to Debug but IDIOTS do not recognize this and just want to watch the world burn.

If XB1/PS4 had BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY more Gamers would upgrade to them FASTER thus DICE could of just SKIPPED the PS3/X360 versions and had time to Debug PC/PS4/XB1 versions.

So Basically this is another ISSUE of Consoles MESSING up a Game. Also the PC version is running pretty smooth as the amount of PC Gamers is huge and like I said the Crash issue was overblown, It may be Overblown on the PS4 too and same will happen next week for XB1 as N4G loves MISERY.

Battlefield Since 1942!

FIX for crashing Battlefield 4 on PS4: hit your PS button go to settings > Application Saved Data Management > Saved Data in Online Storage > Download to System Storage > Battlefield 4 > Select All > Download. This should fix any crashing issues
