The Guinness Book of World Records has announced that they will be releasing a Gamer’s Edition to the fifty three-year-old reference book.  Set to be released on February 8, the book will chronicle the greatest achievements in computer and video game history, settling once and for all any lingering squabbles as to what the highest Super Mario Brother’s score is (1,044,950 set by Brian Sulpher of Ottawa, Canada September 18, 2004).  See, wasn’t that a remarkably satisfying piece of trivia? Or how about the fastest completion of Halo 2 on Legendary?  3 hours  17 minutes and 50 seconds (without dying).  The book is also packed full of random trivia such as the most successful video game documentary or the most polygons used for a virtual character.
