LBP2 Players Strive To Set Five Guinness World Records
LittleBigPlanet 2 is set to take over your life next week - no, seriously - and in celebration of the launch, several dedicated gamers want to set some records.
Sony is teaming up with the Guinness World Records next week and the hope is to set five new world records, which will be attempted over a three-day period in the PlayStation Lounge at the Sony Style store in New York City. If you're in the area, feel free to drop by; the fun starts on January 17 and the players will attempt to set the following records:
- Longest marathon playing LittleBigPlanet 2
- Longest marathon playing a platform video game
- Most video game genres played in one video game in 24 hours
- Most user-generated video game levels played in 24 hours
- Most user-generated video game levels played in a marathon
LBP2 will also be recognized for setting two records: Most gaming genres in one video game, and most player-created levels in one video game (no competition there). They'll be streaming the action live at the PlayStation Blog; they'll be going all-out to support and promote Media Molecule's new masterpiece. Lastly, don't forget that the event will mark the release of the Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer's Edition; you'll be able to pick it up on January 20 for only $14.99.
Are your favorite video games featured somewhere? Think you could come up with a way to get into that book? Well, if not, you can still have a blast playing LBP2.
