Happy Monday afternoon gamers and gamettes. After playing around with the theme and layout all day (still a work in progress, evidenced by the ugly and out of place legacy banner,) I figured it was time for a word or two of actual content. My roomate forwarded me this Wall Street Journal article about the lack of PS3 sales and how the Wii is dominating the market.

At the end of September, the Wii had a wide lead with nearly 35 million units sold since its launch in 2006 compared with about 22 million Xbox 360 consoles and 17 million PS3 machines. Nintendo last month sold 2 million Wii machines in the U.S., while Microsoft sold 836,000 Xbox 360s and Sony sold 378,000 PS3s, according to NPD.

To think that the little white box with Gamecube-esque graphics and fancy motion sensors is just crushing the heavy hitters makes me naseous. Obviously if you are a frequent nester, you know how the Wii is recieved over here. But, seriously, 2 million consoles for the holiday seasons!?!? In the middle of a recession!!!! It’s impressive, yet equally infuriating.

So as you can see, we’ve cleaned up the look of the nest (twice!!!) and changed the name. The site is officially known as The Bird Nest now, and I think it’s for the best.

Also we obviously changed the theme, yet I’m not in love with the new one. Highlights do include easier to read text and the name of the author attached to each post.

If you like the changes, leave a comment! If you hate the new theme, leave a comment! If you think I’m a dickhead, leave 2 comments!

EDIT: new banner! took me way too long and it looks really simple but I think it fits. I’ll be tweaking everything though as we go and eventually this will come together. Happy New Year!
