Malaysian Kids Set New LAN Party World Record

Last year, 203 attendees at Nvidia's Nvision '08 set an official Guinness world record for the world's longest LAN party, clocking up 36 hours of non-stop gaming. That record has now been broken.

Over the weekend, 300 kids at the Cyber Fusion 2009 event in Malaysia set a new mark (a new "official" one, at any rate), bringing not only more gamers, but managing to play for 40 consecutive hours.

The most-played games over the weekend were Team Fortress 2 and titles from the Quake and Unreal Tournament series, while organisers also spotted a few users grinding away on their WoW accounts during quieter moments.
