Now this is something that can be very infuriating for gamers who have spent hours in a game progressing and locking down achievements and what not. The last thing you want to experience after spending so much time is the inability to access saved game data. Gamers have complained about lost progress and in some instances, even unplayable games. This mysterious error, PlayStation 4 error CE-34878-0, is being investigated by Sony.
Roughly a day after this mysterious error started making life hell for gamers, Sony has officially acknowledged its existence.
