Last week we reported that six gamers at a local store in the Netherlands were going the distance, and trying to break the Guinness World Record for Non-stop Gaming. Trying to knock off the current holder from India Chirantan Patnaik with his 40 hours and 20 minutes, the six gamers started on the 16th playing Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption, and went for a grand total of 50 hours, stopping together as one to all land in the books together.
Edward and Maykel Leest from Boxmeer and Hengelo, Sven de Vries from Lelystad, Renzo Bos from Baarlo, Robbie van Eijkeren from Middelburg and Marcel van Waardenburg from Amsterdam came in as rivals but walked away as World Record holders, each with 1,000 Euros and six TwistDocks – one of the major reasons that they could compete. The TwistDock (created by Vogel and the brain behind breaking the record) is the dock that attaches to the PlayStation 3, enabling you to charge your controllers 24/7, allow for an additional four USB hubs, and hiding those unsightly cords.
So congratulations to the guys over on the other side of the world, and enjoy the money, the free swag and most importantly… the sleep.
