issues or not M$ has done something about it, I don't know if you heard a couple of people complain about the PS3 60gb version kicking the bucket just roughly after 1 year.

All Microsoft has going for it now is Xbox Live which is being challenged now by Playstation Network, and exclusive games which are becoming less exclusive. I even remember hearing some games are moving back over the Playstation so the Xbox is losing ground on the market. Comparing the failure rate of the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 is a joke. Sorry to be rude about it, but its just a known fact that the Wii and the Playstation 3 are far more reliable then the Xbox 360, and a few 60GB Playstation 3s dying won't change that.

Thanks for the input on the Wii though and +rep to those who gave some.

Yup. Agreed, I have done both ways and even left the wii running for days. Nintendo did a damn good job on this silent, cooperative, small, pretty unit.

Woo!

I think you might get more heat buildup if you have it laying down horizontally. It's the same way as my external HDD, but most likely less extreme.

When it's laying down, heat is going to build up under the device and just stay there. If it's on its side, then there is more surface area of the device surrounding the air, and the air can then take away that heat.

Although I don't like keeping my HDD vertically (I don't like stiff cables sticking out of something that I don't want to tip over), I do because it significantly reduces the heat.

But like I said, it shouldn't be as bad with a Wii.
