FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANTA CLARA, CA—JUNE 20, 2008—LAN Party gaming will reach a new level during a Guinness World Record-setting attempt at the NVISION® 08 event on August 25 in San Jose, California. The aim of the event is to make history as the world’s “Longest Non-Stop LAN Party.”
“This will be one of the most exciting gaming record attempts of the year. I’ve been really impressed with the enthusiasm of the NVISION team and I look forward to being the official adjudicator for this great event,” commented Gaz Deaves, records manager, Guinness World Records.
“I have faith and confidence in the NVIDIA gaming community, one of the most loyal, energetic, and enthusiastic core audiences of NVIDIA since we were a startup, ”said Sheryl Huang, NVIDIA marketing director and veteran of countless LAN events. “At NVIDIA events in the past, these guys have been up all night anyway. Their energy is incredible. I’m looking forward to them setting this record and earning a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. It’s glory time.”
The goal for the Guinness World Record is for a dedicated team of gamers to play video games continuously for 36 hours (10 minute breaks are allowed for every 60 minutes of continuous gaming).
