Fun Fact: Guinness Breweries started the Book of World Records to settle pub arguments over the biggest, fastest, and best milestones in the world.
Fast forward half a century, and Guinness World Records now not only publishes the book that you probably own, but also annually produces the Gamer’s Edition; a records book devoted games and gaming-related achievements (high scores, etc). That brings us to E3 2010, where the Guinness folks dropped by our booth to recognize a trio of PlayStation milestones.
Scott Rohde, Vice President of Worldwide Studios, North America, accepted records for LittleBigPlanet with the Most User-generated Levels (2,463,073), UNCHARTED 2 as the Best Selling PS3 platform game and MAG for the Most Players in a Console FPS with 256.
Although we’re the recipients of the plaques, none of these records could’ve been set without you, the PlayStation gamer. It’s you who made the levels in LBP, you who bought UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves by the million, and you who make those MAG battles the biggest on a console.
So congratulations! And if a disagreement over PlayStation should ever come up in a pub one evening, remember: you’re now equipped to settle it decisively.
