Guinness World Records Introduces Inaugural Gamer's Edition

For the first time in history, Guinness World Records offers the definitive guide to all gaming records, facts and figures in Guinness World Records: Gamer's Edition 2008

Hitting store shelves in the US on March 11th, the Gamer's Edition announces new records such as: Halo 3 as the Highest Grossing Game In One Day generating $170 million worth of first day sales in the U.S. alone and Fastest Completion Time For A Game Of Super Mario Bros., an astounding five minutes flat. Quiz masters will also enjoy video game trivia such as Faiz Chopdat who served the Longest Prison Sentence For Playing A Computer Game after refusing to turn off his Tetris game while aboard an airplane --- and Grand Theft Auto III, which holds a record for having the Most Guest Stars in a Video Game, including Samuel Jackson, Ray Liotta and Dennis Hopper.

So why has Guinness World Records, the world's best selling copyrighted book, expanded into the world of gaming? The answer is simple; because the gaming industry is too big to be contained in just a few pages of the annual book. As gaming records are one of the largest sections in the Guinness World Records database it only made sense to create the Gamer's Edition to highlight the amazing facts and figures that have made the gaming industry what it is today.

Bursting with new records, high score statistics and fascinating facts the all-new Guinness World Records: Gamer's Edition 2008 is an avid gamer's ultimate companion.
