The Wii has long been the platform where multiplayer games go to do. The lack of support for true online multiplayer has simply been well, lacking. Finally with Call of Duty: Black Ops we'll see what the Wii and the Wii network can do with a FPS multiplayer game. Peroformance Designed Products will be right there with it, bringing the custom skinned Call of Duty: Black Ops Headbanger Chat Headset for Wii to the market sometime this month.
