November 2006 was a great month for gamers but a wretched month for games press and wallets. The neck-to-neck launches of the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii was almost like witnessing St. Elmo’s Fire or the Arctic Lights. 1UP had a whole month of features that not only celebrate this rare occurrence but also discuss about the significance in terms of popular culture and of the industry.

To house these fantastic features, I had to design a new template hub could accommodate a lot of (if not all) PS3 and Wii information organized by chronology.  There were features, countdown clocks, screens, previews, product info… it was a premium bag of trail mix of modern gaming technology.  This was all garnished with little touches of military-inspired art to give the reader the “inside look from the headquarters” kind of feel.
