PS4 CE-34861-2 error code causing problems

By Alan Ng - Dec 29, 2013

While PS4 owners look forward to a lovely 2014 with their brand new consoles, it appears that one or two users are still having some teething problems when it comes to using the PS4 PlayStation Network with consistency.

We’re getting one or two complaints that a PS4 error code CE-34861-2 is causing some bother, affecting a variety of games which involve inviting friends into a game using the main PS4 friends system.

Specifically, this issue could be affecting those with a EU PS4 only which is particularly worrying if region specific problems are present.

Evidence of the problem has appeared on Sony’s official EU boards here, while we’ve included a few Tweets from those users who have been getting the PS4 CE-34861-2 error below as well.

The question is: Have you seen this error code on your own PS4 console? If so, tell us when you saw the message pop up and which region your console is from.
