Competitive multiplayer games, such as industry standard Call of Duty, are what make the world of e-sports a reality. And livestreaming of those games is the lifeblood of that community, primarily done through PCs and various online services (YouTube, Twitch.tv, etc.). Activision clearly knows this, as the next entry in its annual franchise, Black Ops 2, is adding YouTube livestreaming to its Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions -- the game is also headed to Wii U, but won't have the functionality built-in. "Wii U will not have this feature at this time, but it is being evaluated for a future update," an Activision rep told us.

The streaming service works in concert with Call of Duty Elite, allowing viewers and gamers alike to delve into all the thrilling numbers behind each online game. The game launches this coming Tuesday on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, with the Wii U version launching soon after alongside Nintendo's next console, sans streaming.

Oh snap!!

Yeah, that's just what I want to do. Watch someone else play a garbage game.

Streaming in more games in general is a good idea. It can be a pain otherwise.

Cool. Soccer moms, the elderly and young children don't need this feature anyways.

Wii U can't stream because there's no Ethernet port.

I've read you can use the Wii ethernet dongle. Mo money, mo money...for optimal bandwidth.
