    Are you talking about a Skin or a Case mod? I can't see the skin causing a problem if the vents aren't blocked.

    Why not keep the classic look of the Wii instead of covering it up with skins taking away from the nice look of the console. Yes, block white looks better than some crazy skin. But that's just me.

    I don't actually have one. I was making fun. People with skins on their consoles grow up to drive ricers.

    Decal Girl if you're looking for a site with loads of skins. They have a nice collection.

    Here Nes skin for who ever lost their link.

    Edit: nevermind. I didn't read your post Chach. They're the same thing.

    Edit 2: I don't care who you are, this is kick ass

    Advertisers usually photoshop their ads to make them look good.

    I've never bought anything from decal girl, but I bought a skin off of Pelican. It was nice looking. The package said "No stick - Guarantee". Of course they were wrong. It took me an hour and a half to get all the goo off of my psp. Decal Girl seems a bit more trustworthy.

    I had the shattered skin off decalgirl and it was excellent. They're a hell of a ***** to get on, but if you're patient and do it right they look fantastic.
    Unfortuntely my damn wii had to be sent in for repairs due to a damaged gpu, and the skin had to be removed. I was really pissed, because I really don't like
    the ipod white look of the wii. I would order a new skin, but because I live in Canada and UPS are ****in douchebags, the brokerage fees to get through
    customs is 20 bucks CAD which is a total rip off. Costs more than the skin itself.

    The skins and mods all look really good for the Wii but im happy with the original look for now, might get one or the other in a few months time, like a chrome one or black one

    I am going to avoid using any kind of Wii skins. I prefer to keep my Wii console in its original white colour.

    I will upload my Wii with a skin on it. I decided to get The World Killer. Why, because that's what hte Wii is doing in turns of sales. It's killing the rest of the worlds consoles. Give me a few to take a picture and upload it.....

    PS: It's a decal from Decal Girl. Has never peeled and I have removed it before and it reapplied just as if it was new!
