    If it's letting the fan draw air through the Wii, then it's letting smoke into the Wii too and not protecting the laser optics from smoke build-up at all. So it's not a solution.

    It makes plenty of sense for smoke to completely ruin your Wii.
    I remember when we first moved into our home, I spent hours scrubbing the thick film of smoke off my bedroom walls. It was terrible. If it sticks to the Wii as bad as it does to walls, that can be a big problem later on.

    You can't both protect the Wii from smoke and let it breathe and keep cool, without a huge, dense filter (huge so it doesn't restrict airflow for the Wii's puny fan).
    I said why not cover it when it's not being used. When it's not being used it's not turned on...therefore anything you've mentioned about fans is moot.
    I don't claim to be a genius, but I'd say it's fair to assume you're not one either with that sort of retort ;-)
    Or perhaps you just didn't read very well :-P

    Do you always jump right to insulting forum longtime forums members when just on your 3rd post? Gives us lots of incentive to try and help you in the future.

    The Wii's fan runs even when it's "off". This was added with recent firmware updates as a way to try and control the overheating that is damaging Wii's.

    Unless you're totally unplugging it when you're not using it, but I doubt that. And even if you are, the fan runs while it's on, pulling that smokey air through the Wii's delicate optics.

    So nice try, but no. It's not a solution. If you care about your Wii (and your health), don't smoke.

    Some people will delude themselves and believe anything it takes to allow them to justify doing something they know deep down is bad for them. One way or another, they're going to do whatever they want, even if it means convincing themselves the earth is flat or the sun rises in the west.

    josh85 asked a question and has been given the truth. I guess it's going to be a given that the pro-smoking addicts are going to come out of the woodwork and sell their snakeoil to try and contradict the painfully-obvious and ridiculously-simple truth, and somehow make smoking+Wii seem "ok".

    Whatever. Kill your Wii, I don't care. It's your $300. Smoking makes you live longer so it must be good for the Wii. It floats, too. Throw it in a bucket of water. It'll be fine.

    This just in. Smoke of the right kind makes games more fun. If catch my drift.
    Just like second hand smoke kills vans of children, of course the smoke will damage the optics. Its not like smoke will help the wii. Of course there is a Wii at the bar that i regular and its been running fine. Maybe it just needs a drink to go with that smoke.
    And yeah the Air does flow through the Wii so maybe you should buy a oxygen tank and buy a glass case for the wii to. Cause Global Warming man. It's comming.
    -I didn't come from the "Woodworks with snakeoil", i came from the bowels of Hell with a keyboard and mouse. (And my NES gun)-

    Has anyone tried smoking a Wii?

    Well I wasn't trying to insult, hence the emotes.

    I'll admit I did not know that a fan is still running when it's in standby mode.

    Though, I'd find it hard to believe that a simple plastic bag over the wii or something similar that still allows airflow but filtering it, would have any risk of overheating when it's in standby mode.

    I suppose you can argue this point all you want, but to me it's fairly logical.

    *shrugs* I was only trying to help. Most people that smoke understand it's unhealthy and typically want to quit, but it's easier said than done.
    Helping with little remedies like this is at least a bit more productive than saying "it's bad for your lunges" or "just quit".
