Call of Duty: Black Ops Wii headset revealed

Wii News | Wii need to talk.
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.

So you actually have to plug it in to the Wii itself...

Cords? Cords?! CORDS?!?!

Either sit next to the Wii or that better be one long cord.

Horrible idea.

Its also horribly insulting for a console which was the first to have bluetooth controller ports for pretty much every controller you use with it. Its not like we shouldn't expect peripherals to use it.

I guess if its got 4 player offline splitscreen theres no more room for it, but I don't think thats the case anyway.

The Wii doesnt have enough USB cords for all these accessories. There's nothing more annoying than having to reach through your TV cabinet to unplug / replug a GH / Rockband microphone / headset / whatever else there is. I'm using one of the ports for my ethernet cable. Thankfully the guys and girls who did my Joytech power station enabled a plug-thru feature so I can piggy back another USB device into it's existing plug (that only uses the USB section to power the charging base)..
