Submission + - Wii Connect 24 may cause heat-related problems. (computerandvideogames.com)

mgabrys_sf writes: "WiiConnect24, a system built into Wii to keep the console constantly connected to the internet when on standby, is reported to be causing consoles to develop faults." reports computerandvideogames.com. Mine hasn't bricked but I can confirm that the unit seems very warm to the touch — warmer than when played in fact. Even if the problem isn't widespread, I deactivated WC24 because — as the article says — it's proved to be a non-essestial feature so far anyway and not worth risking a slow heat-death situation over the lifespan of the unit.
