In addition to thousands of high scores and records, the book features a round-up of the key events of the video gaming year--including reviews of new releases, new consoles and the major tournaments--along with detailed game strategies, interviews with the professionals, tips and cheats to improve your play, tabulated information, full-color photography and illustrations, league tables, bizarre facts and amazing trivia.
The original records book was first published in 1955 and is today available in more than 100 countries, with over 3 million copies sold annually.
"We reintroduced video gaming world records to our annual book a few years ago, and its proved to be one of the most popular sections with our core readers. It makes sense, therefore, to dedicate an entire annual to the subject," said Guinness World Records editor in chief Craig Glenday.
