Some Apex Legends players on PlayStation have been plagued by the CE-34878-0 PS4 Error Code. Though, there is an easy way to rebuild the system’s database in order to fix it.

Just like any other solely Multiplayer game, Apex Legends has encountered a few big problems when it comes to getting into a game. We’ve had the infamous Code Leaf error, DXGI ‘device hung’ problem on PC, and the code 100 error on Xbox.  

While those specific problems have become pretty rare these days, PlayStation 4 users have been running into the CE-34878-0 error code in recent days and weeks. This issue is to do with the console itself rather than an Apex issue, but it does prevent you from playing. Yet, it actually isn’t all that hard to fix. 

The dreaded error code can look like a disaster, but it is fixable.

Step-by-step guide to fix PS4’s CE-34878-0 error code

The CE-34878-0 error code forces players to rebuild the database of their PlayStation 4 – which can happen because the console has become bugged and believes you don’t own the game. Rebuilding the database can be much easier than redownloading the affect game, however. 

You simply have to trigger the console’s safe mode, execute the rebuild database command, and wait until everything figures itself out. Though, to make it a little easier, we’ve produced a step-by-step guide below. 

  1. Turn the PlayStation off completely 
  2. Unplug the power wire from the back of the console and wait for a full minute
  3. Put the wire back in and hold the power button down for ten seconds
  4. Plug your controller into the PS4 via a USB cable
  5. Select ‘Rebuild Database’ from the PS4 safe mode menu
  6. Wait for the update to complete and you should be back playing games

By following these simple steps, the PlayStation will rebuild its database and your screen will look like it is doing an update or downloading a game with a progress bar. Though the warning says it could take a few hours, it shouldn’t take all that long.

Once the rebuild is complete, the console may quickly reboot or jump right into its main menu – it depends on how long it takes. Though, you should be able to get back to playing games like Apex Legends again.

Apex Legends dev confirms highly-requested inventory feature coming soon

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
