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.
