Fix Cyberpunk 2077 Crashing-Freezing on PS4 with Code CE-34878-0
When the crash occurs can indicate the root of the problem. If the crash is random, happens during cut scenes, or specific scenes where the game requires more resources, it could mean the settings of the game are set too high and that’s causing the crash. If the crash occurs when you are loading specific checkpoints in the game, it could indicate the system is over-exhausting its horsepower which could be resulting in the Cyberpunk 2077 PlayStation error codes CE-34878-0 & CE-108255-1.
Since the game is pre-optimized for consoles and there is little you can do if there is a performance problem with the game, the only permanent fix for such a problem is to wait for the developers to resolve the issue in a patch. However, you can tweak some settings on the PS4 to ensure that game performs better. Change the PS4 Video Output Settings to 1080p. Reducing the video output will consume less resources and therefore, it will prevent the crash from happening. Also disable the Supersampling Mode in the Video Output Settings to further enhance the performance of the device. Additionally, you can also try and avoid any visually demanding scenes. PS5 users can also attempt the available settings changes.
For crashes that happen at random, these are some solutions you can try.
Restart the console
To restart the PS4, press the power button and allow it to power down. Remove the power cords and hold the power button again for 10 seconds. Allow the PS4 to rest for a while and connect the power cords. Fire it up and launch the game. Most people will eliminate the error simply by this step. If you are on PS5, perform the same fix.

Clear Cache on PS4 & PS5 and Rebuild Database
Corrupt cache files on the console can lead to the Cyberpunk 2077 crashing with error code CE-34878-0 and CE-108255-1. Cache are temporary files on the PS4 and PS5 that enhance the performance of games. You need to clear cache, but there is no way to do it on the PS4 from the settings. Instead, you have to hard reset the PS4 to clear cache. Turn off the PS4 completely and disconnect the power cords. Let the PS4 rest for 30 seconds. Now, connect the power cord and hold the power button for 10 seconds. After you hear the second beep around 8 seconds, let go off the power cord.
