How to Fix Not Init Genshin Impact PS4 Error

To fix the Not Init error in Genshin Impact on PS4 and other platforms, normally, all you need to do is restart the game, and maybe the client too, if you’re on PC. On consoles, you might have to turn you machine on and off again. That’s basically all there is to it. Indeed, if you happen to get this particular error, you’re in luck, because the fix is just that easy. Just exit the game (and I do mean completely; don’t leave it running in the background). Then, turn it on again, and the problem should be solved. You can give it a couple of minutes before booting the game up again, just in case, but it’s not a must.

Allow me to explain what’s going on. Basically, the only time that this error appears is when the game doesn’t download a new update properly. By that, I don’t mean major patches that introduce new zones and whatnot, I mean the usual everyday maintenance stuff that the game installs on its own almost every day. So, the Genshin Impact Not Init error on PS4 and other platforms appears when this download is interrupted in some way. In fact, you’ll probably notice that the main screen is different, and, of course, the game will refuse to connect.

Restarting the game allows it to complete the download that might have been interrupted. That’s why I recommend waiting for a few minutes after exiting Genshin, just to let it tie up all the loose knots. If it doesn’t work, just restart the client/your console, and you should be good to go.
