    Rotterdam - 6 Dutch gamers have broken the world record for non-stop gaming. They played the game Red Dead Redemption for 50 hours straight.

    With that, the 6 men broke the old world record, which was from september last year, set by Chirantan Patnaik from India. He played 10 hours non-stop. They achieved this record during the Twistdock Endurance Gaming Event in Rotterdam.

    The six blokes started their attempt at 12:55 past friday and played non-stop until sundayafternoon. They unanimously decided to stop after 50 hours. The certificate for the world record was handed out by a representative of Guinness World Records.
    "The guys came in as opponents and left as world recordholders and friends."

    It said they unanimously agreed to stop after 50 hours. Would've been funny if one of them continued playing. [​IMG]

    It's not that great of an achievement. They had ten minute breaks every hour and were allowed to take a fifty minute break every five hours.

    I filled up 2 2-liters and one 3-liter once.

    Ahh, PSO, the piss you've made me collect at the computer...

    Funny thing is when dumping it all out, I found out that's it's true no matter how much you pee in a toilet, it never fills up!

    OK........
    Dude.......
    Get a life.
    But i wonder what game they were playing and where they got to.
    Because if they're playing a game in which you have to press the a-button every 2 minutes, then its kinda crap.

    Edit: Scott-105 beat me to it.
