I was SSBB today and noticed a weird noise coming out of my Wii. It sounded like the Wii was having problems running the game. So I started to wonder if its a better idea to have the Wii horizontally instead of vertically?

How is your Wii positioned? Horizontally or vertically?

All consoles I've ever owned, I've always positioned them horizontally.

Well my Wii's vertical because it looks cooler. I don't think it'd affect performance though.

my Wii is usually vertical unless I am planning on playing for player smash bros. I've got a nasty scratch on my PS3 because of it toppling. The PS3 is also vertical.

Mine is horizontal because I don't have the space to fit it vertically.

I used to have mine stood up vertically, but now I have it horizontal.

When I had my Wii it was vertical for space purposes, my friends also put them vertically.

Vertical for space reasons. My PS2 is also vertical, also because of space. I don't use the stand thing for the Wii either.
