    Nintendo DS World Record Attempt
    National Media Museum - Bradford - 28Jul2010

    28 July 2010 (6.30pm)

    National Media Museum, Pictureville, Bradford, Yorkshire, BD1 1NQ

    The National Media Museum in Bradford is calling on all gamers to pick up their Nintendo DS and take their place in videogame history through taking part in a Guinness World Records™ attempt. Gamers, their friends and families can bring their consoles and a game of their choice along to the Museum on 28 July to help break the World Record for the largest number of people playing DS games in the same space. The current record for this challenge currently stands at 586 gamers.

    Anyone who is crazy about Nintendo handheld games, from Super Mario Kart and Professor Layton to Pokémon and Brain Training, can join the Museum for this free of charge event and help make history on the 28 July at 6:30pm.

    Tom Woolley, Curator of New Media at the National Media Museum, said: “I’m looking forward to seeing so many gamers come together to play Nintendo DS - I’m sure we can set a new World Record! Videogaming is a growing area for the Museum with our new Games Lounge and events like this reinforce our commitment to viewing games as a culturally valuable, sociable and fun activity.”

    One of the independent witnesses overseeing the record attempt is Charles Cecil. Charles has been a key figure in the British games industry for over 25 years and formed Revolution Software in 1989. Renowned for his acclaimed PC adventure games Lure of the Temptress, Beneath a Steel Sky and the multi award-winning Broken Sword series, Charles recently helped create Doctor Who: The Adventure Games with the BBC.

    To take part in the Nintendo DS World Record attempt players must register in advance, ready for the event that will commence at 6:30pm. For more information and to download a registration form please visit www.nationalmediamuseum.org.uk/worldrecord.

    For those who can’t get enough of videogames, why not take a trip down memory lane before taking part in the World Record attempt and play classic, groundbreaking games in their original arcade or console formats and discover the story behind the global gaming phenomenon with the Museum’s interactive Games Lounge. Favourites include, Pong (1972) and popular games from the 1990’s such as Super Mario Kart, Sonic the Hedgehog and 007Golden Eye.

    And as well as breaking records, the Museum invites gamers to battle their way through a Nintendo DS Tournament. On the 29 July and 18 August, the Museum will host tournaments inviting challengers to come along and play classic DS games where they will compete to win a place in the grand final and pick up a prize donated by Nintendo
