UK gamer and Street Fighter pro Zak Bennet will be attempting to break the Street Fighter IV Guinness World Record for the most consecutive wins on the 20th of Feb in London's Oxford Street.
Our sources indicate that Zak has had months of practice with the game already which places him at a major advantage over the relative newcomers. Either way, if you think you can defeat Zak you could be in with a chance to win a 48" HD TV. See press release for more details.
Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of videogames, announced today that UK’s premier Street Fighter player Zak Bennet will attempt to break into the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition with a new world record for most consecutive wins on Street Fighter IV, in conjunction with the game’s launch on Friday 20th February.
The attempt will take place in the HMV store on Oxford Street in London at noon. Official Guinness World Records representatives will be present to adjudicate the feat, which – if successful – will be shortlisted for inclusion in next year’s Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the first person to defeat Zak Bennet will be awarded a monster top-of-the-range 48” TV and home cinema surround sound system.
Street Fighter IV brings the legendary fighting series back to its roots by taking the beloved fighting moves and techniques of the original Street Fighter II and infusing them with Capcom’s latest advancements in next generation technology to create a truly extraordinary experience that will re-introduce the world to the time-honored art of virtual martial arts.
The number of minimum consecutive wins that Bennet needs to achieve in Friday’s attempt in order to set the new Guinness World Records is ten, and the win streak cannot exceed four hours of play.
