Online chat during games is rather uncommon on the Wii, and one of the few titles set to support the feature is Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops. Wanting to give eager Call of Duty fans who want to play on Nintendo platforms something special, peripheral manufacturer PDP has revealed a custom Black Ops 'Headbanger Headset' to help gamers chat as they waggle and point.
While the standard Headbanger Headset comes in a clinical white styled to suit the Wii, the Black Ops headset instead comes in a polished jet black, complete with the Black Ops logo decal. Both headsets feature;
- High-quality voice chat for compatible titles.
- Adjustable, flexible noise cancelling microphone.
- Comfortable for left and right ear positioning.
- Mute and volume functions integrated into the earpiece.
- LED indicators for the mute function, as well as system connectivity.
- Approximately three meters of cord.
- Support for other titles, such as Conduit 2.
- Licensed by Nintendo.
Both versions of the Headbanger Headset are set to release in America and Europe sometime in November, and retail for US$24.99. It is unknown if this peripheral will make its way to Australia.
