New video game endurance record set

Dutch gamers clock 50 hours on Red Dead Redemption -- nonstop

Red Dead Redemption.

Did you play a lot of games this past weekend? Odds are, a group of six Dutch game enthusiasts have you beat, as the team broke the previously-set 40-hour record by notching over 50 hours with Red Dead Redemption.

The team consisted of a half-dozen gamers from throughout the Netherlands, all of whom will share the record as the group decided to finish together. The new Guinness record holders are Sven de Vries, Renzo Bos, Robbie van Eijkeren, Marcel van Waardenburg, as well as brothers Edward and Maykel Leest.

The session, which started at 12:55 PM on Friday in the Netherlands, was played completely on the PlayStation 3 version of Red Dead Redemption. Instead of using wired controllers, the team used a charging device called the TwistDock to keep powered controllers at the ready. The event was coordinated by Vogel's, the creators of the TwistDock.

What's the longest gameplay session you ever logged? Do you think you could ever play a game for over 50 hours straight?

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
