I apologise for the previous comment and retract what I said. Your PS4 is totally normal, just going through a phase as it is now in its teenage stage.


Like a computer, higher demanding games will make it work harder and thus it will get hotter, and the fans will turn up

What previous comment?

The thing is, it's really loud. Is it normal?!

mods deleted it, if your PS4 seriously overheats then it will shut itself off so regardless of how noisy the fans are - it should be ok (technically)


I'd just make sure you're not blocking the vents at all, and make sure it's not in an enclosed space because it might just be sucking hot air back in after throwing it out

it was nothing relevant

My PS4 sometimes sounds like a shuttle taking off but other times it's really quiet. Here are two examples, Wolfenstein being played via disc it's quiet but Final Fantasy 14 being played via download from PSN it's really loud.

Hmm, I wasn't sure whether to contact Sony or not. It's scary how loud mine gets.

I remember with my 360 (totally different types scenario yes, but hear me out it made a really loud noise when playing Halo 3 (probably because I had all DLC packs installed) but was fine whilst playing any other games! So I would suggest it is perfectly normal, and as CBEE2 says, it will turn itself off if things are getting too hot anyway

ignore the word 'types' there, would edit but the mobile app doesn't seem to have an edit button...

I dont know anything about Playstation, but my Xbox 360 does the same thing your describing. I presume its just the console working a bit harder so it can play the game. The fan going into overdrive, is pretty normal. If your worried its going to stop working, turn it off and let it cool for a while. The one thing I don't suggest is buying a external cooler as it could void your warranty. ( Don't quote me on this, it voids your warranty with Xbox, not sure if its the same case with a Playstation )

It was a troll comment I've been told. Don't comment on my threads again or I'll have you suspended.
