For systems that came out in this decade?

I certainly think so, since we're almost halfway through it (the decade)! I know it's probably annoying for the VGC to have to update his layout scheme, but...

This was asked a while back and I think he said he's going to leave it as is.  He said there are "plans" for that section of the site.

I have been planning on incorporating a search bar on the drop-down menu for some time.  If I add a drop-down for 2010's, I probably won't have the space.

I do get a lot of requests to add that (2010's) however.  Is it really worth it for three systems?  Technically we are in the 2000's.

At this point, it probably isn't needed. At least until the # of systems in the 2000s surpasses the # in the 1990s (13?)

I think the search bar would be a much cooler option.

Alternatively, space could be saved in other ways:

1) Collapse 70s and 80s systems together - The 70s list is short, and this would also allow future expansions like reviewing pong era machines, or the LED handhelds
2) Sort the portables into the decades they belong -
3) Move the 'Articles' link elsewhere - possibly on the righthand column with news and spotlight features.  It would be more prominent there, and could even cycle through various articles as the review spotlight does.
4) The "Space" on the sides could be shrunken - this might affect mobile view, or how the banner looks, but on my PC a good amount of real estate is just starry starry night.

It looks like there's enough room to place 2010 in there if you find another spot for the search bar.  Technically it's still the 2000's, but all four/five categories should be grouped by decade to be consistent.

Ummm...there's more than just three game systems than came out in the 2010s thus far...

I agree with this, though I personally think it could be a category under Home. Right now the Atari Flashback 4 review gets as much toolbar "real estate" as the entire NES library!
