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.
