Hey guys. I know it isn't pc, but ill give it a shot anyways. My Playstation 4 is very loud while playing games. It's at a point where it's truly annoying. Any advice on how to fix it?

Welcome to SPCR.

The cooling fan / PS4 might be clogged with dust. If it's out of warranty, or if you don't mind voiding the warranty, get a Torx screwdriver, open up the back and clean the thing out. Be sure to hold the fan blade in place while using canned air on it.
