Imagine sitting down at your PlayStation 4, ready to continue your game of Assassin's Creed IV, Fifa 14 or Call of Duty: Ghosts only to see an error message flash across your screen. "No problem," you think "I'll just restart the system and everything will be good as new." However, you come to realize the very unfortunate truth that your save gone, all of your progress lost.
For many PlayStation 4 gamers, this scenario is reality.
It's an issue that has plagued the PlayStation 4 for months but is just now starting to get traction on a bigger scale as more and more gamers run across this issue. The culprit in question is error code CE-34878-0, which corrupts your save file, making it useless and flushing hours of game progress down the toilet.
It's unknown what causes this error, as it's not tied down to any one particular game or PS4 function. Sony claims they are looking into the error but there is no timetable for when they will find a fix, if they find one at all.
If you are affected by this error, Sony asks that you quit the game and verify that your PS4 and game software are up-to-date. If that doesn't work, Sony suggests that you make a backup of your save and initialize your PlayStation 4. But let's be honest: it's unlikely these fixes will work because for many gamers, they haven't. If you run across this error, the sad reality is that your saved game is likely lost for good. What you can do is make backups of all of your saves on a regular basis.
