Dragon Quest IX Enters The Guinness Book of World Records

And it's not for sales, but for something else entirely.

Dragon Quest IX has a "Chance Encounter" mode that allows players to share data with players they bump into in the real world via Nintendo WiFi. In dense Japanese cities, there's a good chance of bumping into another person with Dragon Quest IX in their DS with their game in "Chance Encounter" mode. How good of a chance?
