Like any new system, the PS4 has seen a number of glitches. Similar to the Microsoft’s Xbox One, users have been reported various bugs and errors on Sony’s latest gaming system. Recently, players have reported two new PlayStation 4 glitches on the console’s European blog.
According to reports, an error window appears every time a user attempts to gain access to their online friends' list. User Kieran0161 reported this bug on the blog, saying, “I keep getting this error and I’m not happy it cost me like £500 for ps4 then £40 to get online and I can’t even use it you take our money but don’t give use a service we pay for on ps3 it was free so can’t complain but now I pay for bout coz it don’t work you best give use free online for a year now.”
A second user stated that he received the PlayStation 4 error CE-34878, which happens as a result of users attempting to play EA's first-person shooter "Battlefield 4." Gamer SAUER_30-06 reported the glitch on Dec. 30, saying, “Yesterday I called Sony support about my PS4 that constantly gave me the 34878 error, despite total rebuilding the system, reinstalling certificates and reinstalling games. Sony support told me to get it replaced at the store I got it from, so I did. Got home and plugged it in and everything worked fine. I even played an whole hour of 'Battlefield 4' for the first time.” He also added that “if your console crashes constantly every 10 minutes, call support or your store. You´ll get a new one. The reason I never found an answer was because the problem is not very common.”
