Playstation 4 - PS4

I have had my PS4 less than 2 months and every time I play a game for more than a few minutes my PS4 gets insanely hot and it sounds like a jet engine. I have looked all over the internet and I have yet to find anything helpful or official. Should I be worried? Is it going to die on me?

Answer: 
If you have it set vertical, don't
"Watch Dogs, BF4, TLoU:R are notorious for causing the fan to increase and get louder because it needs to cool off the system. I use an IR Temp gun on my PS4 regularly just out of curiosity and the hottest Iv'e seen it get while playing MP games is arround 120F, which is less than my PS3 playing TLoU MP. "
Mine was very loud when playing Sniper Elite, Trine 2, Killzone, AC4, etc, but okay on games like pixel junk shooter or something not intense. So loud I could hear it through headphones during quieter moments. Talked to Sony and they said it wasn't normal so I sent it in
