DICE has told Battlefield 4 players how they can help the developer iron out the kinks leading to the CE-34878-0 crash on PlayStation 4.
Now the customers need to help fixing the product they paid for ...I hope DICE but especially EA learned from this fiasco ... DON'T RELEASE UNFINISHED GAMES
Nope, EA will translate that to "don't be overly ambitious enough in projects to risk not being able to release it on schedule in a playable state"
Nail. head. Hit.
Great point. Without leveloution no doubt they could have realeased a shiny polished game, but there wouldnt be any innovation. When you push the boundaries sometimes they push back.
EA are greedy bastards but DICE is at fault as well. What this did in my eyes is completely destroyed DICE's reputation and I will never buy a game made by them ever again. They killed my favorite shooter franchise. Now I'm stuck with CoD. At least that game always works, say what you want but it's true.
@slimey, leveloution or not I think it could've been mostly avoided with a better beta period. Not a couple weeks out from launch. Just my opinion.
@ares I agree with you dude. Duce reputation with me has fallen down the drain. Bf3 had so many bugs and now bf4 has more bugs. 2 games in a row no way. Goodbye dice as much as I love battlefield is not worth the money if it's unfinished
"CE-34878-0 has been linked to multiple PS4 titles, including NBA 2K14, FIFA 14 and Need For Speed Rivals" All are EA titles - go figure. I don't remember getting this crash on say Killzone (or any other game for that matter). I still get it on BF4 albeit maybe once or twice in a two /3 hour time frame when playing BF4
wow. that's about all I can say.
@slimeybrainboy wuuuuut? Have you forgotten about Battlefield Bad Company 1 & 2 having buildings that were ALL destructible? Not just the odd one like in Battlefield 4? Maybe this is an apples to orange comparison on my part though because Battlefield 4 IS a 64 player(in conquest mode at least) game with insane graphics all at the same time..
While i do admit EA pushed this game out too early.. And they should have done a better job. I don't see this being a huge problem.. I mean it's not like they are asking people to figure out what the exact problem is. They just want to know the circumstances that it happened to you so they can patch it quicker. And yes it is still BS that it has to come this far, it's only really to get the patch out quicker.
Exactly. Asking the user base for input as to what is leading up to a crash is common in software bug fixing.
Is it possible to hit the share button and just share what happened at the time of the crash? Not sure if that part of the system also crashes. I have yet to use the share button (on purpose).
How about this. Some of us would rather have BF4 than wait an extra 3 months. You can go stare at a wall if you dont want to play an unfinished game. Better advice is: "DONT BUY A BROKEN GAME!" And leave us who can get some good out of BF4 to play it.
^This. I'm enjoying the game big time! I'm not having any crashing or issues, maybe im a lucky one but its been all good on my PC. Even bought a new R9 280x for it, smooth as silk on Ultra.
Exactly. Whether or not the game was pushed out early, it will be fixed soon. I'd rather be playing it now then have had it delayed. The end result will be the same. I've crashed to the dash zero times over the past few days. The game is incredible.
How were people who bought it at release supposed to know it was broken?
Excuse me, but think about what you're saying. Would you buy a 60$ toaster, bring it home, find out it doesn't work and not bring it back? Even if you're getting the same model it was most likely a defective unit which happens. Almost all stores have a no reason needed return policy with a time limit where you get your money back. With software you can not get a refund, nor is there any point in a direct exchange. So the problem isn't people buying a broken game, it is the people who bought the game and found out it was broken. They are left with no options. With people who have not purchased the game: they are concerned with a disturbing trend. Where companies know that the repercussions are not as drastic because they patch afterwards any problems. The trend can continue where big problems, like Battlefield 4 experiences, are left with the patch later attitude. Battlefield 4 is supposed to be flagship. You don't send your Flagship out unprepared to fight the enemy(COD)
@Lukejrl This has fucked EA up. Stock were going weird, half the community hates them, they can't work on DLC untill it's finishes, lots of extra cost making the game work post production. I for one dont think EA will be doing this again. This hasn't been a good thing for EA, and I trust that DICE didnt want or try to release a bad game. They were trying to make the best game they can. I don't know why so many people believe DICE are capapble of such evil. They're just trying to make a game. I'm sure they would make it better if they could. It not like they deliberately fucked the game up. These are brand new systems they had to make the game for, and they've only had they dev kits and final specs for a few months. Cut them some slack and please dont pressume that they are out to make your life worse, there's alot of DICE devs who just want to make great games.
This have nothing to do with unfinished game. This is ps4 only problem, not optimised for new architecture
Lolwat? Not optimized for new architecture? Even though both the X1 and PS4 now use x86-64, which is what all modern PC's use as well? Lol okay.
What!? It has EVERYTHING to do wit an unfinished game dude! We're not just talkin PS4. These issues are occurring on PC, XBOX One, PS4, and even 360 and PS3. The game is BROKEN and incomplete. The sound constantly goes in and out, the game crashes back to dashboard, and sometimes the server options that you select don't even show up accurately.
the game was rushed to be released before Cod, nothing to do with the ps4, its the same thing on pc.
@zod18 I agree. As a customer, this is rediculous. We shouldn't have to do ANYTHING but enjoy a product that we paid $50 and $60 on. You can't release a broken UNFINISHED game to the public, wit the mentality of "Let's get it out to beat Call of Duty, but patch it later." EA is notorious for doin shit like that, and it's gotten out of hand now wit BF4. Patch number 15...Get outta here wit all that!
You can help us fix the crashes by paying $60 XD
The Game works fine on PC so the game DOES work. The Fans don't HAVE to do anything, but if you can help out, why wouldn't you want to ?
Help? after paying 60$ they still want us to help? Next time they shouldn't release something unfinished in the first place!
Ok... So youre gonna continue to suffer with a broken game? Lets say you payed for a plane ticket... Then the plane crashes on and island... If everyone cooperates you guys can be rescued... Are you gonna refuse to help the captain and flight attendants lead you to safety and choose to die on the island?
Horrible analogy that doesn't relate to this subject at all.
dude you have been watching way too much last lost
Literally the worst analogy ever made. Congrats.
I get your point... I agree, I don't see why it's a big deal to assist. I still believe DICE makes an excellent product, however I'd almost guarantee EA was pushing and forced the unfinished product out the door. I'm hate jumping onto the "refund" bandwagon, but it'd be nice if EA would give us Premium members a kickback of sorts...after all we paid 100+ $$$ for this debacle!?! This will get resolved and greatness will abound! But I would have rather have waited 6 months.
The only thing this game has done is cement the fact that I will never buy another EA or Dice game. They sold us a broken game with less features than the last version. It is a disgrace.
Am i the only one getting this code on AC:Black Flag? ive looked online and all i see are BF4, COD and the occasional 2k... :( this sucks. on ps4, dunno if that matters, all the F2P games and psn games, rasogun and contrast work fine tho.
