Turok fan to set world record?
Someone will attempt to break the world record for the amount of time spent waiting in line for a game.
On July 18, UK resident Jason Read will begin his attempt to break a world record. He wants to hold the record for the longest amount of time spent waiting in line for a computer game. The 25-year-old, who will wait for the game Turok Evolution from Acclaim, wants to break the record by a massive 20 days. Acclaim, known for its sometimes daring PR moves, has promised to help. "When we heard about Jason's attempt to get into the record books by queuing for one of our games, we felt that we had to support him," said Shaun White, PR manager at Acclaim. "We sincerely hope that by providing him with some of our other games, the next 50 days will fly by."
"I've been a huge fan of the Turok series and was excited to see that a fourth game is being released later in the year," Read said. "This gave me the perfect excuse to make my record-breaking queuing attempt, and I'm fully committed to going all the way."
