The much-awaited Gran Turismo 7 release date has finally arrived! This racing game is great fun to play however, as with all games there can be a few issues that you may face with gt7. These issues could be Gran Turismo crashing and not launching, black screen issues, connection issues, or the error code CE-108255-1.
This game is fantastic to play on the PS5 and PS4 and the graphics are spot on! You may notice a better graphics performance on the PS5, especially if you change the graphics priority to prioritise Ray Tracing.
You can play the new Gran Turismo as a solo player, to race against opponents or gain your licenses. You can also compete against a friend on split-screen. So it’s very frustrating if you get an error CE-108255-1 code, which crashes Gran Turismo 7 on your PS5.
What is the CE-108255-1 PlayStation 5 error code?
This error could pop up when first launching Gran Turismo 7, navigating the menus, or when you are in a middle of a race! Annoyingly the error will crash your game to your PS5 home screen, or freeze or get stuck on the menu screen before eventually crashing.
It will say something along the lines of “A problem occurred in the following app” and you may be given an option to report the CE-108255-1 to Sony.
The Gran Turismo CE-108255-1 error is actually fairly common and can occur in other PS5 games such as Horizon Forbidden West.
