The current record, set by Jeff Nation, JJ Locke, Casey Coffman and George Vogl in August 2011, is 51 hours and 21 minutes. Blevins, Gottschalk and Morgan will attempt to play for 60 hours straight with a 10-minute break each hour. Medical staff will be on hand, if needed.
The event, scheduled to begin at 12:01 am, November 6, 2012 at a GameStop in Grapevine, TX, is sponsored by NOS Energy Drink, Mad Catz, TRITTON, GUNNAR Optiks, Twitch.tv, and Elgato Systems.
