StickTwiddlers To Attempt To Break Guinness World Record

Yep, that’s right! The StickTwiddlers team in association with Twitch Gaming are going for a WORLD RECORD!

On March 25th 2011, the excellent Twitch Gaming will host the StickTwiddlers team as they saddle up and attempt to play Rockstars hit title Red Dead Redemption non-stop for over 50 hours, breaking the current world record.
Not content with accomplishing this fantastic feat, we also plan to use the event to raise money for one of our favourite charities, Childs Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in over 60 hospitals worldwide.

Update:

We've been made aware that the record may now stand at 109hrs as of last December. We are currently getting in touch with Guinness to confirm this but rest assured, if it takes 109h01m, we'll do it.

Let's hope they don't play this on the 360, or he might RROD.

Someone should tell them those 50 hours is the old record. On 22 december last year it was broken by belgian gamers, the new record is 109 hours. Approved by guinness world records.

We've had a chat with Guinness World Records & have a bit of an update for you. Guinness are currently recognising the world record for non-stop gaming as 50 hours, set by the group of Dutch gamers in July. The Belgian attempt which racked up an impressive 109hrs is currently being reviewed. Either way, we're going to break it! We've also got a few more tricks up our sleeves which will be revealed later on in an official release so stay tuned!
