It's there. I haven't had the chance to try it out yet. This article gives a bit more detail on the split-screen multiplayer:  http://www.callofduty.com/intel/407?path=intel/407 
 
Excerpt: 

Multiplayer Online Split-Screen Support
Let’s get started with what I believe is the most unknown, yet confirmed, aspect to Call of Duty: Black Ops Multiplayer -- the online split-screen support we’ve re-introduced to the franchise! This applies to both the Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3.

The Facts:

  • You can connect a 2nd controller and bring a Guest online (i.e. "JD_2020" & "JD_2020(1)").
  • Guests can rank up, earn unlocks, etc -- all Guest progress goes away once signed out.
  • (Xbox 360 only) You can bring a 2nd, Gold Xbox LIVE account online!
  • (Xbox 360 only) Both players with full online accounts can rank-up while playing split-screen, as if on two separate consoles.

Me and my husband tried it.. it's pretty cool-- the quality obviously goes down a bit, but it's fun-- I wouldn't recommend for smaller screens though.

It's great, but it has some flaws, maybe something they can patch. Wish you could use two profiles on PS3 though...
