    Wii U: Horizantal or Vertical?

    This question obviously applies only to Deluxe Set Wii U owners (because that's the set that comes with the stands). Which of you people hook up your Wii U horizontally by laying it flat, or vertically by using those stands that came with the system?

    I still haven't made up my mind yet, but I don't really like how the 3 stickers on the bottom of the Wii U is exposed while standing vertically. But at the same time, the Wii U looks like it's sleeping when put horizontally :P

    I decided to make this post for Wii U owners to escape from all the doom and gloom posts for the Wii U.

    Mine is horizontal, but I wish it was vertical. I always like the logo to be displayed the way it was meant to be. That's why the turnable logo on the PlayStation's were one of my favorite little features...

    Horizontal for sure...it only takes one bump in the vertical position to ruin one's evening.

    I am not a fan of putting my consoles or computers or any device horizontal. I like the have the ROM drive parallel with the surface it is resting on. Even with the stand I would not think it to be very save from bumps or shakes
    I brought the Awesome. What did you bring?

    You mean you are not a fan of putting it vertical.

    The only console I ever had vertical, was the original Wii.

    They do sell the stands separately.

    I normally have it vertical, but since we decided to move the PS2 upstairs it's been horizontal.

    Mine is vertical, because that's just the way it fits on my desk at college. The wires dont really fit if it's sideways

    I don't have the deluxe, but even if I did I would keep it horizontal. It just looks better that way, and is MUCH safer in my house horizontally deployed (because of my seven marauding felines!).

    I am looking for a slim PS2 stand, though. The counter has run out of space for me to keep it horizontally, so necessity means it gets stored or goes vertical.
