Sony Rakes In Several Impressive Guinness World Records
We just have to kick this off with the same fun fact: "Guinness Breweries started the Book of World Records to settle pub arguments over the biggest, fastest, and best milestones in the world."
Yup, there is a name connection. Anyway, they're braggin' a bit over at the PlayStation Blog, as the Gamer's Edition of the Guinness Book of World Records has recognized Sony and its products in a variety of different ways. Sony Vice President of Worldwide Studios North America, Scott Rohde, accepted new records for LittleBigPlanet (the Most User-Generated Levels at 2,463,073), Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (Best Selling PS3 Platform Game) and MAG (Most Players in a Console FPS with 256). They have to be humble about the accomplishments, though, as it's clear that without the loyal fans, none of those numbers would've existed. As the blog says, "it's you who made the levels in LBP, you who bought Uncharted 2 by the million, and you who make those MAG battles the biggest on a console." From our standpoint, Sony typically appreciates its customers and fans, and they often take time out to thank them.
So yeah, keep it up. LittleBigPlanet 2 comes out later this year and I think we all know that Uncharted 3 is in the works, so there's always a chance to set new records!
