First-person shootout world record set
Grand battle royal
MuchDifferent's gaming world record attempt - to pit one thousand players against each other in mass first-person combat - took place this weekend. It missed its target by a single user.
The company's Man Vs Machine game  still set the record, though, with 999 people battling it out over the net.
The record, independently confirmed, will now feature in future versions of the Guinness Book of Records: Gamer Edition. Unless it gets broken in the meantime, of course.
The firm said its next goal will be to make its PikkoServer technology  available to developers worldwide to dramatically expand the multi-player gaming experience.
The world record attempt was as much a public demo of the tech the company hopes to sell, as it was a bid to get into Guinness.
Well done and good luck, guys. I hold myself fully responsible for not making up the numbers last night. ®
