The PS4 error code CE-36329-3 usually pops up when there is an error in the system software/firmware of the PS4. Worst part about this error, your game crashes midway before you get this error message.
If it’s the 1st time you are getting this error then it’s probably a one off crash with no serious issues to worry about. Just restart the game and you shall be good to go. Worst case scenarios here would need you to restart your PS4, initiating a new power cycle, which shall clear out the error following which you can get back to your gaming session.
If restarting doesn’t fix your problem, then the problem lies within the PS4 firmware. Check for updates. You can do this by going to the “Settings” in the main menu of your console then selecting the “System Software Update”. If for some reason you are not able to update from main menu you can always start your PS4 in safe mode and update it by pressing and holding the power button for 7 secs. In few cases, the game might be the one which received a update. To check this, press “Options” over the icon and select “Check for Update”.
Still getting the error code CE-36329-3? Time to back up your data and go for factory restore (Initialization). This can also be done in 2 ways, either from the settings menu found in main menu or by starting your PS4 in safe mode.
If the above attempts failed then the problem is with your account. This problem arises if someone sends you a text message from a dummy account to exploit a bug in the PS4 operating system causing the game the crash and show the error code. These messages usually contain a bunch of hearts and some sort of hieroglyphics. Fixing this is also pretty easy:
Just download the “PS app” and “PS Messages” app on your smart phone and delete the messages from such dummy accounts.
Once you are done deleting the messages, go to “Privacy Settings”
Then go to “Personal Info | Messaging” and set the option to “Friends Only”. This little precaution shall save you from such spam in future.
Moving on to the last step, start your PS4 in safe mode and select “Rebuild Database”. Restart your PS4 once the database is rebuilt and you shall be good to go!
