    Horizontal or Vertical?

    The Wii can be displayed either vertically or horizontally and i thought it'd be interesting to see what the vast majority prefer.

    Im pretty undecided, think im gonna go for horizontal, im just not keen on the whole axis of the disc spinning away vertically.. i dunno.

    I havent read any reports of overheating with the Wii so im guessing horizontally although increasing the surface area will probably be my best bet

    How are you guys positioning yours?

    Horizontal

    Gamecube controllers will tip it over if its vertical....unless you have a Wavebird.

    Ya but if you have it horizontal then you have to completely remove the cover to plug in a gamecube controller and it looks like shit without the cover on it.

    Why do you have to remove the cover? It flips down quite nicely.

    Well I havn't tried it with it horizontally but in the manual it says that you have to remove the cover when the console is placed horizontal so that the console can sit flat. So I guess it will prop the console up off the ground a little bit.
