    I wish they'd release more N64 games on the Virtual Console - there were plenty of great games for that!

    It would be more awesome if it was adapted properly for the Wii (Wii-mote), with just a minor graphics refresh and came along with online play.

    Now that would be one of the biggest selling games ever surely?

    Downloaded Super Mario 64 and it's rubbish with the retro controller. Once again for me the Wii needs some online capabilities.

    When you have the 360 sitting next to you, it's difficult to even consider playing Wii at this point.

    Great with people round, damn boring on your own. Don't get me wrong I love Wii and the fact that Nintendo have tried to do something different is great, but as we speak, I'm bored with it already. Bring on Trauma Centre!

    Not going to happen I don't think..not unless Nintendo fork out ALOT of money.

    Goldeneye is owned by Rareware, and Rareware defected to Microsoft a few years ago now

    So in other words, since Microsoft effectivly have control over the licence, the odds of it appearing on the Wii are slim to none..Why would Microsoft allow Nintendo to release one of the most popular (and best) games on the N64 for the Wii if they could stop it?

    It would be nice though, and it happened then it opens the possiblity of getting some other classics on the wii - Banjo Kazooie would be awesome on the wii
