iPhone Sets Guinness Records
In the 2011 Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition Apple stole a number of records from the clutches of Sony, and Nintendo.
The iPhone supplanted the Nintendo DS as the "Fastest-selling Portable Gaming System" selling 1.5million units during launch week. In comparison the PSP sold 200,000 during its first week, and the Nintendo DS sold 500,000 units.
The App Store also earned the title "Most Popular Application Marketplace." Guinness did note that out of the 260,00 apps available in the App Store, 61 are fart apps. My favorite being Fart Ocarina.
Angry Birds earned "Top Paid-For App Store Game in Most Countries" proving that birds with furrowed brows are awesome in more than American's minds. Tap Tap Revenge was named "Most Popular iPhone Game Series," and Plants vs. Zombines was named the "Fastest-Selling iPhone/iPod Strategy Game."
I do question the fairness of pitting these dedicated video game devices against a universally lauded after device like the iPhone. They are competitors in the gaming market, but they do fill very different niches.
