The launch of Guinness World Records 2009 Gamer Edition is upon us, as Guinness World Records today release this year’s edition of the highly respected publication.
To celebrate the UK launch of the new edition, motoring inventor Edd China will unveil his latest creation on four wheels – the Fastest Mobile Gaming Rig on 11th February. Complete with all three Current-Generation consoles and monitors, this unique piece of mobile furniture will tour the streets of London with three gamers onboard after setting a speed record on the A40.
Also in celebration of launch, the world’s Youngest Professional Gamer, Lil Poison (aka Victor De Leon III), is due to visit London for the very first time on 9th February. 10-year old, Long Island (NY) native, Lil Poison, claimed the title after signing with MLG recruiters as a Pro Gamer at the age of six.
