    Mine stands up. Also why would nintendo advertise the thing only standing up if it was bad for the console?

    I have my Wii standing up, and I haven't seen scratches on my games.

    Almost everyone here will have it that way unless there is no enough space therefore they lay it on its side.

    I have my Wii vertically, because that's the best way it fits below my TV.

    I had it horizontally sitting on top of the Xbox 360, but with Wii Connect, the Wii plus the Xbox 360 got REALLY hot where they made contact.

    The Wii sits vertically. It has a slot loading drive, so disc scratching shouldn't be an issue. It should be no different than a computer with a slot loading drive, sitting vertically.

    Vertical because I wanted to use the stand.

    OH! By the way did anyone else forget about the clear plate for the base of the stand? I never seen it when I was setting it up. It was only when reading through the manual I realised it was included.

    Yes I noticed that clear disc also and I use it. I think nintendo noticed the unstableness of the console so they mad the disk to make it more stable.

    Where I have my Wii (right next to the Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive) there isn't enough vertical clearance to use the stand or the plastic disc, and use Gamecube controllers at the same time. If anyone does this, be careful. I've "smashmywii.com'd" my Wii, figuratively speaking (it fell over) a couple of times while playing Gamecube games with the wired controller with it like that.

    The Wii thankfully is ok, and doesn't seem to have taken any damage from it either time. It scared the hell out of me though.

    I wanted it right on top of my xbox 360 because it looked real good, but it gets to hot so I have it horizontal on the side of the tv. ( Still looks sexy though )

    to warn you...if your console is vertical and your paying a game then you decide to make it horizontal and move it..then it scratches the disk really bad!

    Vertical Wii. Strangely enough, when I put my first PS2 vertically, the drive began to make strange noises and it went kaput within an couple months.

    i have no [plate. i looked in the box, nothing, unless i threw it out but i doubt that. Maybe mine didnt come with it. i got it off ebay and that person got it the day it came out. and then he shipped it to me.
