    Not true, the record is only over 700 people, and I was part of it at A-Kon. Not to mention, even if Comic Con has broken the record, it certainly is not official through the books. There will surely be more than 700 cosplaying attendees.

    More than 700 at pax? Are you sure about that? o_O

    Well PAX certainly dishes out plenty of attendees. They don't even have to be GOOD costumes. The previous record was held by a class full of elementary school students in really crappy Mario Bros. costumes.

    i still don't think we even hit 200 cosplayers last year. Unless the record is VERY low or you can get all of PAX to dress up I don't see that happening

    well shoot.

    I guess the cat is out of the bag.

    The Handheld department has been working with the higher ups to do something officially. Nothing definite yet, but we'll let everyone know in time :)

    Toooooo true. It was just a random thought a year or two ago. So excited we're finally doing it! I look forward to *crosses fingers* kicking the last records tushy from here to Estonia.

    Suddenly, it became a record for "Largest number of inebriated DS players"...

    Please sign this waiver as your thumbs may not be returned in original condition.

    Who needs beer when you can play Mario Kart and sound like you've had a few? I swear that game needs a higher ESRB rating due to blue streaks blue shells can cause.

    I'm pretty sure my sister has a DS so I'll probably bring that one. I know I wouldn't play it enough to make it worth buying one.

    Happy to join any DS record setting. The knuckle-cracking is problematic. (possibly due to the DS...)

    haha this sounds awsome.
    This also means I have to go out and buy myself another DS before PAX.
    Oh noes! Potentially problematic.

    We should do both.

    The knuckle crack would definitely have to be organized from onstage, though.

    Remember at the second Q&A last year when we all blinked, to see if it made a sound?

    Shit I bet we already beat the world record for most simultaneous blinks?

    Too bad there wasn't any sound.

    omg that does sound kick ass! Although I'm sure there have been larger groups of people blinking simultaneously before. Just they weren't attempting a world record...

    Just to keep everyone up to date, the record claim title has changed a little bit. Instead of the largest number of DSs played in 5 minutes, we are now going with "Largest group simultaniously playing Nintendo DS".

    EDIT: Oh! Also, anyone that would like to can use my current sig. At the moment it just links to a larger version of the image. The plan is to have it link to an info page later on. Just copy paste the following and remove any **

    Until you know for sure whether you can make it or not, I would stop half committing....
    You've done it on a few other threads too and it's getting annoying.

    You know, you could be a little more polite. There's no reason to get snippy because he's committing conditionally. Not everybody is in the position to know what they'll be doing in September, especially when they live more than 3 hours away from Seattle.

    Sorry Moe.... Sorry JonnyNero.
    I don't think I'm doing a very good job of making friends... Just kind of annoying saying 'maybe' especially if people are signing up for stuff.

    Anyway, this sounds like fun... I shall have to steal my brother's DS for occasion.

    No need to commit to anything right now. We'll have people line up, DS in hand, and we'll clicker count you through the door.

    You can buy my original DS if you want. I'm planning on buying a DSi the Thursday of PAX. You would need to buy a US charger, though.
