    Ever since I got Brawl Sat. night my Wii has been heating up rapidly. Also when I play Brawl it heats up to the point where it turns off by itself. I can keep it cool by putting my window fan by it so I'm thinking of buying the Wii USB Fan but I wanted to make sure it wasn't a problem that needed to be fixed by Nintendo. Also has anyone else had a problem like this since Brawl? My cousin said it could be because Brawl has so much content, I LOLed but I think it's true now.

    No problems here, yet...
    I did notice that the 'disc read' sound happens A LOT though, even when nothing seems to be happening in the game, the Wii sounds like it's working it's ass off.
    May have something to do with it?

    The sound of the Wii reading the disc definitely is louder than any other game I have ever played. I expected to hear it during the (slow) loading screens, but not in the middle of the game itself.

    As long as you have adequate ventilation around your Wii, it should not overheat no matter what it's doing. Sounds like your Wii is starting to fail.

    Yesterday my Wii was running Brawl for ten hours straight and it didn't over heat. A lot of disc reading sound, cause of dual layer I'm guessing, but it didn't shut itself down >.<
    Is there space around your Wii for ventilation?

    the reason the wii sounds like its overworking is because SSBB is one of the only dual-layer disc games for the wii. therefore the wii would be noiser than on a single-layer game

    it's just like it sounds. the disc has two layers of data(8.5 GB) as opposed to other games that only have one(4.5 GB)

    my wii is running cooler when i'm playing brawl than it does on standby, but making alot of noise

    My Wii is on the side of my TV and now that I think about the TV IS blocking the Wii from my window. However my window is usually closed. I just wanted to make sure that it wasn't a technical problem. So do you guys think that if I move my Wii to the other side (also closer to my window) this problem will be solved.

    Hate to say it but, get the USB Fan. Or if it's still under warranty go get it fixed

    How long does it take to get fixed? Also what do I need to send it with/in?

    Thanks for the help guys. Oh yeah anyone know the number for Nintendo? I wanted to ask them about it first.

    Edit: I found out the problem. My idiotic siblings and cousin have made my Wii fall so many times that the fan (the one installed) doesn't come on. Unless it's not supposed to be on all the time when the Wii is on.
