[b]New title to be launched at London Book Fair[/b]

Guinness World Records has announced plans to launch a new videogame edition of the famous annual book, featuring a wide range of game-related achievements and information.

The original records book was first published in 1955 and is today available in more than 100 countries, with over 3 million copies sold annually. The new book will be titled Guinness World Records - Videogame Edition 2008 and will be the first in a series of books focusing on specific topics.

It will include reviews of the 20 biggest games of the year, record scores and fastest times, hardware profiles, sales figures and technical achievements made by individual games.

The book will also answer questions such as which pro gamers earn the most money, what is the single highest score ever achieved in a game and which is the most successful games console of all time.

Guinness World Records is already putting together a team to work on the videogame edition, and GamesIndustry.biz editor Ellie Gibson has been appointed as official consultant.

daigo's known for that, but that's about all he's known for. he's not exactly that great of a player... he's GOOD, but there's much better japanese players. people just jumped on his nut when they saw that video... alex valle destroyed daigo at evolution this past year in both street fighter 2 and 3. if he gets mentioned, then pyrolee should be for doing the exact same thing, as well as Kinsu with hugo, and other random fighting game players... Vintage should be the longest SF2:WW player ever, as he still competes now, almost 17 years later.. Daigo just doesn't impress me that much...
