this sucks. everytime I find myself having to delete and reinstall the game. I then have to download the game save from the cloud to overwrite the corrupt save. flustrating. but the game aside from that is pretty awesome. when I am able to play it. :(

I would, it should be fixed by then for sure

From what I'm seeing in the PSN forums, this error is not just tide in to BF4, apparently is to a few more games with autosaving on multiplayer, there are complaints of the error from KZ, Ghosts, and even NFS Rivals.

I've deleted the entire game and re installed it, and it seems to work for me.

Lorddhampire sounds like he works for ea, lol. Yeah pick up our game we should have it fixed by then but give us your money now. I have it for the 360 but after reading about the next gen version I'm kinda hesitant to up grade it to Xbox one.

The game is awesome, by far the best MP game on the PS4 right now.

The issues are annoying though. Im able to play Rush, TDM, and a couple other matches online, but not Conquest... my favorite. So Im upset about that, but the game is very fun and looks/runs amazingly when it works.
mediate-this  +   253d ago
Its really not that big of a problem. At first i thought it was the game, i got switched it didnt work i figure out you need to delete the game save, didnt touch any files in the cloud. It happened only once, now runs like a charm. Amd bf4 is soooooooo addicting, just really nice to look at, and plays really good.

Me too , by the time we get ours these problems would be ironed out .

They had trouble fixing bf3 on ps3. It is a shame they wont add the ability to party up before a bf4 match? Talk about a major step in the wrong direction.

Do you mean "didn't add" or did you actually mean "won't" add? If so, can you provide a link saying where DICE said they wont add it?
kazuma999  +   254d ago
Lol the only thing I need to do is restart battlefield xD I feel lucky. And the error only does it in a rare chance when I start the game, but that's it.

LMAO the PC is plagued with bugs and problems. Good thing some are already patched.
Psychotica  +   254d ago
If this problem is so easy to produce how did it escape testing? I was thinking about buying this but I think I will wait now.
kazuma999  +   254d ago
MONEY!!!! They rushed to get it out before/same time as ghost.
Panthers  +   254d ago
I would still get it. Its the most fun Im having on the PS4 right now. Such a huge step up from BF3 and the PS3 in general.

Still, the issues are annoying and need to be fixed.
InTheLab  +   254d ago
Bought the game at target during the two for one deal snd haven't opened it yet. Gonna replace it with AC4 and roll killzone for my shooter needs.
dcj0524  +   254d ago
Or you can give it to me for free!
BLAKHOODe  +   254d ago
I would hold on to it until they fix it.

I have it, Call Of Duty: Ghosts and Killzone: Shadow Fall. All are great, but BF4 (when it works) is TONS better than COD and Killzone.

They say good things come to those who wait.. WAIT!
InTheLab  +   254d ago
While I can't disagree as I have yet to open it, I have a hard time supporting a broken game or believing it's better than a not broken game and a mechanically broken CoD.

I also bought KZ,BF4,CoD then realized I had 3 shooters...lol.

Just not a fan of Knack and burnt out on AC after Brotherhood...

I agree, this will be patched extremely soon. Probably before you get a chance to return it. There are just too many sales to lose right now, they literally can't afford this.
BLAKHOODe  +   254d ago

Call Of Duty is a lot like Xbox right now in that the internet loves to hate it. Don't buy into that; form your own opinion. I've been playing COD Ghosts while Battlefield is "broken" and I've had a lot of fun with it, but I would rather be playing Battlefield 4.
BX81  +   254d ago
How is cod? Does it have dedicated servers? They said it would for next gen last I saw.
InTheLab  +   254d ago
I hate ghosts mostly due to the maps. They are just too large for such a low player count. The maps are also a clusterfack and despite what a few defenders are saying, the spawns are broken. There's also an issue of balance with the weapons but they usually fix that weeks after launch.

If I had to do it over again I'd roll with nba 2k instead. IW are the B team for COD and MW3 and Ghosts are the proof.
mediate-this  +   253d ago
Hey, i fully agree with you, i dod not buy ghosts on current gen, just apauled at how ghost is the same thing, i was a massive fan, buy im changing now, bought ghosts for ps4 its garbage, i bought kz:sf, bf4, ac4, knack, injustice. And by far bf4 is the best in my opinion, just so addictive, i like kz also but the online doesnt seem as crazy as bf4 to me.,
thehitman  +   254d ago
My BF4 coming in the mail today I hope I wont have any major issues.
jmac53  +   254d ago
EA seems like the company that would take the weekend off instead of working to get this fixed. They will look into it on Monday.
GoPanthers999  +   254d ago
It is a shame that you need to "fix" anything with a brand new game and brand new system. I hope like heck MS has their act together on the 22nd.
Visiblemarc  +   254d ago
I dunno...games often require fixing. The beauty of modern consoles is that they can be fixed at all. Cartridge based games used to ship with bugs that were with you forever.

Why does everyone expect everything to be perfect? You know how complex all this stuff is?
frostypants  +   254d ago
People will find SOMETHING wrong. The bottom line is as consoles get more PC-like, that comes with the good AND the bad things about PCs...like buggy software. The fact that patches can be created and distributed at will allows developers to skimp on QA.

Not to mention there are no conquest servers, no hardcore servers meh

Obliteration is fun though
FullmetalRoyale  +   254d ago
When you are searching for servers do you have multiple game modes selected?

I ask because when I had Conquest, Rush, Obliteration, and Large Conquest selected all that ever came up were the Rush and Obliteration game modes. However, by selecting only Large Conquest, and no other game modes, I actually found a ton of Conquest lobbies.

I just had to keep spamming refresh for a lobby that wasn't full so that my friend could "see me join it" and then click to join me, and also not pick one that was totally empty.

It's a pain, to be sure. But when you figure out how to play the system you can get what you want.

And it. is. glorious.

Am I the only one who was completely surprised by how fun Obliteration was? Hot damn.
frostypants  +   254d ago
Anyone else ever notice that Battlefields game browsers have sucked in every game ever since BF2? It's always been tricky to get what you want in some way. BF3 still gives no way of searching for only official servers (at least on 360...and I assume all other platforms).

FullmetalRoyale  +   254d ago

You can(and I do) search for only official servers in BF4. At least on PlayStation 4. It's not as simple as I'd like it to be. But when you get it working for you it is fantastic.

Theres actually been reports of it happening with CoD and Killzone as well. Looks like its just more common on BF4.
shuuwai  +   253d ago
all bug games are coming from EA.
They(EA) try to push the blame on Sony, But Epic Fail on their part.

A few web site reviewers pointed out it happen after patch 1.5, So it seems games are not updated or compatible with 1.5, Epic fail EA. All other PS4 games are running on 1.06 and 1.50. I say shoot EA a email, and tell them to make their games compatible with 1.5.
Jsoc  +   254d ago

I am only facing this error on FIFA 14, just got it yesterday and haven't been able to start the game since the error pops up non stop, any one else having issues with FIFA?
FullmetalRoyale  +   254d ago
When my friend had an error during the start-up of BF4 *several times I might add* he said that starting a different game, then switching back to BF helped. Perhaps give that a try. Don't hold it against me if it doesn't work.

Good luck, mate!

I have not had this error and wonder what is causing it for others. Did any of you that did get this error have issues while installing firmware 1.5?
redknight80  +   254d ago
I didn't get it while installing 1.5 and haven't received the error on BF4 of Killzone, only FIFA for me. If you are having errors while installing the firmwar, there is an option to download it on to usb and install that way.
ColdNorway  +   254d ago
My PS3 game backlog will save me from these PS4 birth problems, hopefully they'll be fixed by next year. And as EA/Dice don't give real BF veterans any good deals on DLC I'll wait for the PS4 BF4 Ultimate Edition, I will never again pay for any overpriced DLC.
BattleTorn  +   254d ago
I've been affected by this.

I lost all my SP and MP progress, and I was on the last mission of the campaign.

I'm also experiencing Killzone having difficulty running.

Btw, these aren't solutions!!!

I got the same problem when trying to access BF4 on the ps4. I thought is was because I upgraded my ps3 bf4 to ps4 bf4 version. I was thinking is was download problem because of the switching version. I lost all my ps3 progress as well. the sad part is I deleted it then re-downloaded it and still can not play BF4 on my ps4. this is the new system bugs I guess.... I hope it get fix soon...

I have a problem with single player actually. every time I try to play the game and quit I have to start over from the beginning. The game tells me my save file is corrupt and it needs to overwrite it. I can't finish the campaign because of this
lobocob  +   253d ago
i had this problem as well ;\

My campaign save was deleted on the hard difficulty with many collectibles already found. I stopped playing it for now because of this. DICE needs to fix this ASAP; made me a really pissed customer today.

So I upgraded my HDD to an SSD and installed 1.50 firmware freshly download via the Sony website with a USB drive. The PS4 seems to have formatted the replacement drive and done a 1.50 install cleanly. After doing so and reinstalling BF4 and all else, the game works flawlessly. No crashing, able to get into conquest, not constantly losing connection or any issue...

I would submit that the freshly formatted drive with a clean install of 1.50 is the ticket. I do not think it being an SSD is relevant.
TemplarDante  +   253d ago
My NA BF4 brothers, I feel your pain. EA sure dun goofed up BF4 this time. I hope its fixed by the 29th so I can see ya on the Battlefield, or the EA forum cussing EA out.
mgeezy313  +   253d ago
The Error Code CE-34878-0 is not a Battlefield 4 specific error. I was playing Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag last night and it crashed with the exact same error code. It must be something with the PS4. I traded in BF4 for AC4:BF and I am going to get it back when it is fixed to a playable level on PS4, but I have the error codes recorded in my PS4.
kalistyles  +   252d ago
Does anybody have problems with the campaign mode not autosaving? It keeps starting me from the beginning every time I want to continue the game. So annoying. Game is great otherwise.
