I was wondering if GoldenEye 007 for the Wii supports online play for 2 people on the same console? Could my wife and I play online at the same time from the same console?

Short answer: Online play requires one console per player.

This article was written by someone who has played both versions of multiplayer:

Players can also enjoy a TV screen by themselves and jump on Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to battle with up to 8 players.

“[Online and split-screen] are basically two different flavors of multiplayer, so you have a reason to play both,”

which leads to believe that the two types of multiplayer are distinct - an online mode, and a splitscreen mode. While local multiplayer is splitscreen, it appears as though online multiplayer is restricted to singlescreen.

I agree it does make someone lean towards believing that it does not support this capability. However, i am looking for a confirmation. I dont believe the wii has this type of power to do this, but i was just wondering. If it does, we are going to go out and buy immediately. Thanks – prolink007 Feb 4 '11 at 22:12
