Australia, Melbourne, October 30, 2007 – 381 people made history at Parramatta, Westfield on October 12 when they gathered to break a world record for the number of people playing with a Nintendo DS in one area at one time.

This historic event, which forms a new category in the Guinness World Records book, was hosted by both K-zone and Nintendo and supervised by an official Guinness World Records adjudicator.

The day was a huge success with 15 lucky people winning a Nintendo DS Lite and lots of on the spot prizes including K-zone showbags and Nintendo DS Games.

The event highlighted how passionate Nintendo fans are as people travelled from all over NSW to participate.

The crowd was entertained by other Guinness Book of Record holders including Neil Fingleton, the UK’s tallest man and Anthony Kelly, the man with the fastest reaction times.

Nintendo would like to thank all of those people who attended on the day.
